On Jeff Jarrett's new "Project" and the execution of the viral campaign: "I think people are interested, and he has kept pretty closely guarded. I think it's good that Jeff has expressed that he is looking at the fans perspective and what they want to see. He's got his clues here and there, but then he's been out there traveling, going around the country scouting talent. I think it's cool that step by step we're learning a little more, now of course he's announced his first real size able announcement. I'd be very anxious to see what he has to say the day after WrestleMania."

Thoughts on if Jeff's new project needs a TV right out of the gate to make a big splash: "If you look at Jeff's history, he found a way when he launched TNA in terms of doing the weekly PPVs. With WWE doing the network the business has really changed. There might be some more availability in the PPV market if you do it correctly. I think in a fans perspective and just about anyone's perspective whether it's necessary or not, TV obviously seems to be a very important part of the ball game. Just for perception i think it would certainly help. If it is CMT i think wrestling would be right at home there especially if Toby Keith is involved. Jeff has found ways to work around having a traditional TV distribution deal in the past. With this i think he's biding his time, i don't think he's rushing anything here. I think he's going to have all of his ducks in a row before he launches. It wouldn't surprise me if he had TV all tied up."

Daniel Bryan winning the title at WrestleMania: "I'm cautiously optimistic. We will see. You can look at this one or two ways. You can look at it as WWE are geniuses and they took the fans for a ride and they knew what the end game was gonna be all along and they've got the fans even that more passionate to get there. Or it could be that the fans are really that passionate and really that powerful that they can change the WrestleMania main event. It might be a little of both but i think it's the latter. I think the reaction at the Royal Rumble had to surprise the WWE. People had one man they wanted to see in that Royal Rumble match and they didn't get it. As a result, the fans voiced their opinion and now here we are. I think it's a more intriguing set up to WrestleMania because of it, because the fans now feel empowered. The fans believe they played a big part in this. I think that's pretty awesome and that's the magic of professional wrestling. I don't see how you can rob Daniel Bryan of that moment at WrestleMania, I think WrestleMania has got to end with thousands upon thousands of people chanting yes and Bryan holding up the title. How do you waste that opportunity? I just don't see it happening."

TNA's using cheap finishes in World Title matches: "On PPV in a world title match people deserve a clean finish especially when you look at recent history. You went through an entire reign of Aces & Eights with Bully Ray as a world champion. There you know you're going to have interference, you know you're going to have screwy finishes. Then AJ wins the title but now you've got Dixie hellbent on getting rid of AJ, so you're going to throw absolutely everything but the kitchen sink at AJ to get the title off of him and on to Magnus. Now you've got this handpicked company champion doing Dixie's bidding so you know during that run it's going to be squirrelly. But I'm hoping that it's going to play into the whole MVP storyline and getting back to pure wrestling that he will make make Magnus put his money where his mouth is and defend the title on a regular basis and do it the right way. If it plays off that way then it makes MVP's position and role that much more important because we've been through this for so long. Now if it doesn't and this continues then yeah i'd say at some point you've gotta jump off that train. But we'll see."
