Chris Hero releasedFormer WWE Superstar Chris Hero (aka Kassius Ohno) was a guest on the Busted Open satellite radio show this week, with hosts Dave Lagreca, Doug Mortman and Mike Riker. Thanks to ProWrestling.net for the transcription. 

On the possibilty of working for TNA Wrestling: 

"At this point, I am looking at all of my options. I would never say no to something based on reputation. I am booked up for the rest of the year pretty much and I am keeping next year open as far as international dates and I want to maximize my opportunities and be able to hit up Europe for a couple weeks and I definitely want to go back to Japan. I’m trying to get that figured out. If there was an interest with TNA, it is an offer that I would definitely entertain but I just want to set enough while the iron is hot…" 

Who will be the next NXT Superstar called up to the main roster?: 

"Off the top of my head, Xavier Woods has been ready to go. He is so talented and he is so ready to go.

You have a guy like Adrian Neville who is legitimately one of a kind and one of those spectacular athletes in wrestling history. He has that flow about him when he is in the ring, he is not a guy that is going to take the microphone and spend twenty minutes on the microphone telling you a detailed story but he will tell you that story with his physicality which is incredible…

…You have Sami Zayn who is just awesome. He is a guy that has busted his ass and has had a lot of doubters through the years but he has produced some of the best matches that I have ever seen in my life.

You can catch the Busted Open show every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on Sirius 92 and XM 92 from 2-4 PM EST.
