During media day for UFC 186 on Thursday, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson commented on his time in TNA and said that being in TNA killed his desire to do pro wrestling.
Jackson had a brief stint in the promotion with Tito Ortiz, but never actually wrestled a match.
"Rampage" Jackson says TNA "killed" his desire to do pro wrestling. Says he thinks they handled him terribly.

Bob Ryder, who is an executive for the promotion, responded to Jackson’s statement:
Really? First class travel for him & an entourage, & then he was afraid to get touched in the ring. Hope he loses. https://t.co/2OebsIZ8z8

This is not the first time that Jackson has been critical of TNA. Here is a video from July 2014 where he said he saw the writing on the wall and the company did not use him properly.
