"I went down to the Burnett Center when they were here. I just wanted them to see me. I called Eric and said 'do you mind if I come down to see you guys at TNA?' He said, 'sure, come on down.' So, I walk in the back looking like Buff Bagwell again. I walk in and Hulk Hogan walks all the way over to me and I feel eyes burning holes in me, and Hulk walks up and goes to me, 'why are you not working for us?' I said, 'well, that's kind of why I am here.'
He said, 'Dude, you're one of the only few guys left that we could bring in and not have any heat,' and he didn't realize what he had said. I said, 'Do you know why that is?… Because I don't have any friends, he started laughing and he said, 'you know, you're right. If we brought you in, nobody would complain about it. I said it's because I don't have any friends in the business, I have a few friends, but none that would get heat for it. So he said, 'dude, who has got your number?' I said, Eric Bischoff has got my number, so I got texts on my phone right now that I could send you.
Eric Bischoff texted me, and he was excited, and I was excited. Then the Main Event Mafia thing started happening, I thought I'd fit into that or Aces and Eights possibly and I have heard nothing and they knew exactly where I am at and exactly how to get in touch with me. Eric was saying positive things. I don't get it. Just let me go out and be over again, I can be the biggest heel or the biggest babyface if they would just let me, but they won't let me and I don't know why."
