Slam Wrestling has an interview up with former WWE tag team The Highlanders. Here are some highlights.
If they are interested in working for any other wrestling promotions:
“Rory MacAllister (Russell Murray): All of them and any of them. I hate the moniker: former WWE superstar or former WWE wrestler. I?m a wrestler plain and simple. I?m like every other worker, I just want to make money. I?ve been in contact with pretty much everyone and I?ve had some nice discussions, some let’s see what happens kind of discussions and some definitelys, so the future definitely holds something for me. I?ll work for anybody. I?m a wrestling whore!”
On what it was like to be at WrestleMania last year:
“Rory MacAllister: There’s really nothing like it, to be honest with you. It’s unbelievable. The sheer enormity, that’s really the part that takes your breath away. That’s when you get a sense of “Wow, I made it.” As far as excitement goes and people being fired up, the Rumble is definitely better, because everybody’s got their part in it. Mania itself is actually almost boring, because you sit there all day and you?re waiting and you?re waiting and then the adrenaline kicks in and it happens and it’s like “Jesus Christ, that was it!” It goes that quick, the show’s over. It really is pretty special. Two WrestleManias ago, we all did that lumberjack match, so everybody was walking out and you look around and there are 85,000 or 87,000 people and you can?t even hear. There’s just noise and it’s unbelievable.”
On why he attended the live TNA TV taping in Orlando:
“Robbie MacAllister (Derek Graham-Couch): I don?t have an idea! Not thinking clearly. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn?t have done it. I would not have been seen there, I would have not gone there. As you know, we were going through a rough time with WWE and I don?t know if I did it subconsciously, like I wanted to get fired. I don?t really know why I did it. Being with my family, I should have thought that this was a bad idea and not once did it really cross my mind.”
