Yesterday, we posted an audio recap sent to us containing several quotes from an interview done with The Honky Tonk Man. In an update to that story, HTM sent the following statement to ProWrestling.net and has posted it on Facebook clarifying what he meant when he said that he had "worked you fu**ers to the very end, there was no [TNA] deal."
"When I said there was no TNA deal I was referring to ‘On Air.’ As stated on my official website, TNA contacted HTM in December to negotiate a deal. Since there are pending legal issues, I can not say too much. I can say TNA and HTM have been in negotiations concerning a deal with Jakks Pacific for an action figure merchandise deal."
