Eric Young made an appearance on “Busted Open” on SiriusXM satellite radio this week to talk about the announcement that he is now officially done with TNA.
Young talked about how things ended with TNA because things “weren’t the way they’re supposed to be” and felt now was the time to step away.
“For me, it’s twelve years and, sometimes, it’s time to move on. I’m not saying it’s because I wasn’t fulfilled with what I was doing there or the people I was working with. It just became time. I’m not a ‘dirt’ guy or ‘drag people through the mud’. TNA’s been my home for twelve years. They allowed me to make a pretty good living in professional wrestling for twelve years and I wish them all the luck. Things don’t end because they’re good. People don’t get divorced because they’re having an amazing love life and still love each other and things are great. Things end because they’re not the way they’re supposed to be. Things weren’t the way they’re supposed to be for me in my opinion, so it was time for me to step away and do something else. What that’s going to be, I don’t have any idea. It’s terrifying and exciting and there’s lots of stuff up in the air with wrestling. There’s some big stuff kind of in the works for television stuff for me right now that I can’t talk about contractually. It’s terrifying – I’m 36 years old and I’m unemployed for the first time in my life. It’s pretty crazy.”
