TNA Executive Producer Jason Hervey was the featured guest on this past week’s edition of Monday Night Mayhem. Here are some highlights from the interview.
How his relationship with Eric Bischoff has evolved though the years: “I’ve known him since 1991, and while he was at Turner and I was at Mandalay, we worked on projects together. We were always good friends, and I got to tell you, I learn from him every day. He is an incredible strategist, a great business mind, extremely creative, and I think we’re just getting started.”
Inspiration for implementing a combination of real life meets behind the scenes to the backstage segments on Impact Wrestling and how pleased he has been with the results thus far: “It is a team effort. That is where I spend most of my day when I’m there, but there is an incredible group of people helping out in the process. When I first got to TNA, there was an opportunity to focus more on what is real, and then we put the characters in those situations to bring out the true reality. I think a lot of the good reality comes from those characters, where we get their real reactions. This is real behind the scenes drama.”
