Mark Andrews, who will compete in this weekend’s WWE UK Championship tournament, recently spoke with ESPN to talk about the tournament. During the interview, he was asked about leaving TNA.
“I had a great time in TNA, but I decided it was time to finish up with them to try and take a bet on myself, because the UK has been such a hot spot for wrestling.” He noted that as soon as his contract with TNA expired, WWE contacted him about being in the tournament and he believes that it was perfect timing. He noted that he was in TNA for two years and that he had a great time in the promotion as there were no hard feelings when he left. He said that there’s a lot of incredible talent in that company, which includes the roster and staff. He believes that a lot of rumors online make it seem a lot worse there than it actually is and that he wishes them the best of luck going forward.
He noted that he never planned for all of this to happen but that everybody wants to work for WWE as it’s the top company in the world for professional wrestling. He noted that if WWE didn’t contact him, then he would’ve continued to work on the indy scene as he planned on leaving TNA.
