TNA President, Dixie Carter, said the following about Christian Cage and TNA’s growth in 2008 during an interview with The Daily Star in Great Britain:
On Christian Cage Leaving: "I’m very disappointed. I like him as a person as well as a talent. It’s interesting, he was the first big name to jump ship to us and he’s been the first to jump back. I wish him all the best."
On TNA’s Growth In 2008: "We had a great year – we quadrupled our revenues. To do that in a year when world economies are crashing, well, it’s a testament to our product and our fans. How do you grow it from here? Interaction… allowing the fans that sense of touching the product, touching the talent, being a part of the TNA experience. We have to get out to these countries that have put us on a par with others and show our gratitude."
