Magnus on Samoa Joe leaving TNA, his upcoming feud with James Storm & more

Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Magnus recently appeared as a guest on Main Event Radio to promote Impact Wrestling on Destination America. Here are some of the highlights from that interview.

On Samoa Joe departing TNA: “I was very disappointed to see him go. I was devastated. I refer to him as my big brother, a mentor to me. We tagged together and then as opponents he was a big supporter of mine internally and in public. I can’t say enough good things about him and he’s a guy who can be a star anywhere that he goes. He was somewhat of an authority figure and he was a guy who didn’t demand respect, he just got it by who he was and what he represented.”

On Bram’s arrival to TNA: “I spoke up on his behalf when things didn’t work out for him elsewhere. He’s a great talent, great intensity, and there are very few people like him. Our feud has easily been one of the best things in my career and that TNA has done in recent memory. He’s got so much charisma and so much energy. His enthusiasm is unparalleled.”

On his upcoming feud with James Storm: “James and I are no strangers to each other. I’ve wrestled James a million times but it was always me as a heel and him as a babyface. Will be interesting to see have it be the other way around. James is part of the fabric of the company. He’s been there from Day One. He’s always got a strong reaction, he’s not credited as much as he deserves. Regardless of where we go and what he’s doing he always gets a strong reaction. That’s what you look for in a talent.”
