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.”
