On Chavo Guerrero using Eddie's mannerisms to get himself over: "TNA wanted him to do that. You know damn well when he was in WWE he wasn't doing that crap. Why else would he do it? The guy's been wrestling twenty years, he's not retarded. He's an excellent wrestler. Why would you want to be a novelty act? They didn't even give us a team name because they wanted to sell Guerrero t-shirts."
On his departure from TNA: "The only way I know that I'm not on the show no more is I don't get a cheque no more. The last time I got a call from TNA was the end of November 2013; my contract ended May 12th (2014), which is awkward because I thought it was the 14th of May. I wake up on the 12th, and it was all over social media, Impact wrestling unfollowed me on Twitter... I text Mrs Carter the day after my contract expired saying "thanks for the eight years"; I'm still waiting for a response. It is the most bush league thing I've ever heard of."
On the main problem with TNA: "As long as the Carters have billions of dollars, that company will never go away. I just think the infrastructure just needs, you know, how you snake a toilet? They have Jeff Hardy, you had Sting, Kurt Angle, the best up and coming talent (like) Austin Aries, Roode, Styles, all these guys that could do anything, and you let every former WWE employee that served coffee to Vince McMahon try to be the boss time after time after time."
On LAX: "The reason why you saw LAX being so good and so strong on TV was because Konnan literally had to threaten to quit and take his bag and roll into the parking lot every time they came up with some corny ass idea for LAX."
On whether he would return to TNA: "Of course not. You wrestle somewhere eight years, you do every stupid semi-racist vignette. I know how a Mexican looks, acts and talks. I don't need a fifty year old white man telling me I'm not being Mexican enough. At the beginning of Mexican America I was doing all the talking, but because I wasn't saying essa and orale I magically became the non-speaker. I told them I wouldn't talk like that because I live in Houston and I'm not gonna get my ass kicked because I'm making fun of my own people."
Hernandez also revealed that he has signed on to wrestle for Lucha Underground.
