MMAMania.com is featuring a lengthy interview with former UFC fighter and now Bellator fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson where he talks about making his debut on TNA Impact Wrestling in a segment with Kurt Angle and his involvement with wrestling going forward.
Jackson added, “Well I’ve always wanted to be a pro wrestler since I was a kid, but now that I’m older and have had a lot of injuries, people don’t understand the toll that wrestling takes on your body. I just don’t think I can do that now while I’m fighting, but when I retire from fighting and go full time into pro wrestling, then I think I can go and get more extensive with my style and my moves. Guys like Samoa Joe have an MMA style in their pro wrestling and stuff like that. I want to be different than him. I still like to slam and throw people and that’s why I did that so many years in my MMA career because I was a pro wrestler at heart. I wanted to bring some pro wrestling into my MMA back in Pride and now I want to bring some MMA into my pro wrestling.”
