Crimson Discusses Transition from TNA to OVW, His Release & More

Posted by Steve Carrier on Wednesday, August 14th, 2013


Chris Featherstone recently spoke to former TNA Wrestler Crimson on the latest episode of Pancakes and Powerslams. Here are some highlights.

Transition from TNA to OVW: “It was an easy transition. Prior to OVW I sat at home for a couple of months. I made the call to Al Snow and said can you use me in OVW and he said sure. It was a double-edged sword. I loved working with Al. At the same time there was a lot of frustration staying at home. What it did was allow me to sit back and work on more character development. I heard nothing but great feedback. The hopes were to get that [military] character on TV.”

Details of his TNA release: “Word was going around that they were ready to clean house. I didn’t expect to be released. I was hoping that they would have enough faith in the investment they’ve made the past three years. I got a call from Al Snow. Once I had him on the phone I kinda knew what it was. I wasn’t too upset. We leveled with each other and that was it.”

Reason for his release: “The way I was explained it was more budget than anything. Going on the road is a big expense for TNA. They had to do a restructure and some of that talent who were sitting home making money had to be let go. All I know is they are using budget cuts as the reason. Other than that, I don’t know.”
