– Hello everybody from the new TNA champion. I never thought I’d be saying my name and “champion” in the same sentence, unless of course there was a “former” in front of it. Thanks for all of the support and positive messages from so many of you, and even the guy who wrote the long analysis of why I needed to add more offensive moves to my arsenal probably meant well, even if he needs to understand that these days, just getting out of bed in the morning is a major offensive move.
– I was thrilled with [the Lockdown match.] I didn’t have much chance to rest though, as I drove back to Long Island with J.B. and Vince Russo right after the show, in order to document a day at home with the new champion. I think you will enjoy the vignettes – keep in mind that none of them were scripted, and J.B. was just rolling tape and recording things as they went down. For example, that really is my massage therapist Jessica that you will see on Impact. She’s a wonderful and inspirational woman, a blind orphan from Vietnam who has managed to raise three children on her own.
– Most of you have heard rumors that I wasn’t exactly wild about my days behind the desk for Smackdown. Doing color on tomorrow’s main event really showed me how much fun announcing can be. Hope you enjoy it.
