Here are some excepts from the interview:

On whether or not he wanted to leave TNA or they decided it was time to part ways:

Well, you know what, I had given them the option of letting me go.  Maybe this will be breaking news.  I know there has been little pieces out there.  When Terry Taylor was head of talent relations, I had a very good talk with Terry and I just said 'remember when Bill Watts would say is anybody is not happy they should get the hell out?'  and he said yeah.  I said I'd be that guy getting up, walking out. 

How he would sum up his time in TNA:

It was frustrating.  It was enjoyable.  It was great for my family.  It was a great way of life for three years as far as being home and not having to entertain too many commitments.  But it was a little frustrating. 

On getting back with another promotion like WWE:

I'm looking forward to the prospect of doing something soon on television again.  I have no idea when that might be but I think it will be in the next several months. 

On whether or not he would like to do broadcast work again:

(laughs)  You know what?  I'm not ruling it out.  I'm not ruling it out.  Sometimes I think at the end of my run in TNA I wonder what would have happened if I had would have been just a little more willing to accept the job under the terms, under those unusual terms that WWE broadcasters have.  And the truth is JR and I would be a pretty good team and I'd be really woven into that fabric of week to week television.  And I doubt that being yelled at would even bother me any more.  I might be willing to give it a try.  You never know. Stranger things have happened.
