The new TNA World Heavyweight Champion Chris Sabin claimed he's not worried or afraid for the future of TNA and Impact Wrestling, in an interview with Busted Open satellite radio on Sirius 92 and XM 208.
"I am the TNA World Heavyweight Champion and I’m not worried. People have been saying they’ve been worried about the company, honestly, since I started. There has always been that little whisper in the background like, 'Oh, no how much longer is it gonna last?' That’s been going on since the beginning and you know what – it is still here today. So, even though I think this is maybe just another wave of little chatter, and that’s all it’s gonna be. I think the company will continue to thrive."
Sabin continued, stating what the company needs to do to be successful going forward, after last week's Impact ratings saw good numbers for TNA.
"For it just to happen one time isn’t enough, you need to keep that, do that consistently. So, it’s like it was cool that I was a part of the show that did a good rating but I would really like to be a part of the wave that continues, and we consistently get that rating. And it wasn’t just me you know what I mean? I think that it was an X-Division themed show, I think that had a lot to do with it, too. And especially promoting the show as Destination X: free Pay-Per-View. I think that we just gave the fans lots of reasons to turn in. And hopefully that continues."
