TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bully Ray participated in a conference call Tuesday to promote the upcoming TNA Bound For Glory pay-per-view and discussed various topics including his transition to a singles competitor, potential retirement, the possibility of Hulk Hogan being gone from the company and more.

Bully Ray noted that his game plan at the TNA Bound For Glory pay-per-view is to go to the show and tear the house down, all while retaining the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Ray said that he has enjoyed the transition to a singles competitor as his goal getting into wrestling was to be a successful tag team wrestler and said that he doesn’t feel that he was ever held back, noting that he was apart of the most successful tag team for 15 years and that he has taken every advantage of every opportunity thrown his way, but in terms of singles competition, there was nothing left for himself and Devon to do together and to accomplish on the tag team scene.

Ray said that when TNA Wrestling gave him the ball, he wasn’t surprised as TNA gave him an opportunity to go out there and shine and that they key to his versatility is that he is just being himself and that he knows how to get a reaction from the crowd and it’s one of the reasons he is proud of his abilities.

In regards to TNA’s financial situation and Hulk Hogan’s potential departure from the company, Ray said that he doesn’t have access to the TNA Wrestling books and said that he continues to draw a nice paycheck from the company, something that he’s done for the past 7 years. Ray said that Hogan is the Babe Ruth of professional wrestling and feels that there is a place for Hulk Hogan in TNA and that Hogan brings credibility to the company and hopes he stays, so that he can kick his behind.

Ray said that he has no plans to retires, however when the time comes, he would like to be involved in the creative process of the business and continue to train the stars of tomorrow at the Team 3D Wrestling Academy. Ray also noted that managing is a lost art form in professional wrestling and that he learned a lot from Paul Heyman, stating that Heyman and Vince McMahon are masters at what they do in the professional wrestling world.
