Moose Talks About Significance Of Second TNA World Title Win

Moose is feeling the moment.

During a recent interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion spoke about how his second title win is more memorable than the first.

“It feels great,” he said of his title win from this past Saturday’s TNA Hard To Kill 2024 pay-per-view. “It’s rare in people’s careers when the second title reign is more memorable than the first one. Usually, when you ask people the most memorable title they’ve won, it’s usually the first title they’ve ever won. In this case, for me, it’s the second title run. Nothing against Josh [Alexander], he’s a great athlete and great professional, probably one of the greatest out there, but if you look at the way I won it against Josh versus how I won it this past weekend, we’re going into a rebrand with probably the biggest moment in TNA history, switching from IMPACT Wrestling back to TNA.”

He continued, “Second, it was the biggest crowd we’ve performed in front of in the last eight to ten years, over 2,000 people, and I was in the main event of our first-ever pay-per-view of the rebrand, and then winning it. It’s rare the second time is bigger than the first one, and for me, the second round was definitely more memorable and bigger than the first time I won the title. It’s a special feeling. Especially, out of all the great talent we have in our locker room, they chose me to be the guy to start the new era of TNA. That means a lot to me, personally. I’m happy I stayed in TNA.”
