During a recent appearance on "Live Audio Wrestling", former WWE star JBL said the reason he is no longer with the company is that when he retired as an active wrestler at WrestleMania 25 that they didn't offer him anything. He added that had they offered an announcing role or a GM role that he would have been interested. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that JBL did have talks with TNA at one point, but nothing materialized out of it. JBL ended up issuing a response on his official Twitter account today responding to the rumors adding, "No talks of tna and no regrets on my career-internet rumors are completely bogus. I am happy playing golf and being retired."
