Following his release in 2002, he would join Total Nonstop-Action Wrestling (TNA). There winning the NWA World Heavyweight Championship with the company, before re-joining WWE in 2008.
When R-Truth left WWE back in 2002 he was fairly outspoken on his time there. During the interview with Sam Roberts on NotSam; Truth would reveal that he genuinely thought he had destroyed all chances of ever returning to WWE. “I thought I broke that bridge” R-Truth stated. “One thing about this company [WWE] they give you. They let you go mature.”
R-Truth elaborated further, saying “this is one of the most forgiving places where. I probably thought I would never, ever have a chance to come back. But they [WWE], they know you make mistakes. They know you sometimes have to mature.”
