Generation Me Speak On Their TNA Departure, RVD’s Comments

Former TNA talent Generation Me appeared on Right After Wrestling with Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas, which airs on TheScore.com and iTunes. Highlights from his interview are as follows:

Matt Jackson on their debut in TNA and not even knowing what their in-ring names would be: “I remember the first time we found out we were gonna be called ‘Max & Jeremy’ was when we watched out debut match with everybody else and it was just so weird. Calling Nick ‘Jeremy’ was something we were never really comfortable with. We had no idea what our names were going to be in TNA. They told us to think of names because we were just going to be portrayed as ‘job-guys’ who eventually got a ‘1-2-3 Kid type’ win and then we would get names.”

Why Generation Me are no longer with TNA: “It just comes down to money. We had crumby deals where you got paid-per-appearance. And we both had dreams to one day sign with a big professional wrestling company and when we got a TNA contract, I think we kinda jumped-the-gun. To tell you the truth, I don’t even think we looked at our contracts. At first, we were making good money and thought it was pretty cool. But as time progressed, we asked for help and asked for a guarantee and we never got that. We never wanted to split-up. When they said we would be X-Division wrestlers, we didn’t want to be lost in the shuffle. And when the agents couldn’t even tell whether we were heel or face, that’s when we decided it was time to get out.”

On the controversial comments made by RVD – directed towards The Young Bucks: “We knew he was talking about us. At first, we were like why? I didn’t feel like either of us had any issues with Rob. Rob always seemed like a loner who just did his own thing. He’s not exactly the kind of guy that you would approach. Every day we saw him at TV, we both said ‘hi’ to him. So he didn’t have the right to make comments like that. Just because we didn’t go to Rob specifically, I hope he didn’t take that personally. If we needed any advise, we would go to veterans like Terry Taylor, D-Lo Brown, Tommy Dreamer or Al Snow.”
