impact wrestling tonightTNA World Heavyweight Champion Magnus spoke to Herald-Dispatch.com recently, covering a bunch of different topics. One of these topics was breaking into the business, which he did alongside former TNA star and wrestling veteran Douglas Williams. 

"I was very green when I first came in. I probably wouldn’t have lasted. As a singles guy, you’re very exposed. You learn on the job. Doug took me under his wing. We complemented each other, benefited from working with one another. The tag win was a big deal. Chances are I’d be around a while."

The champion also mentioned that TNA Wrestling is in a new era, with the recent departures of Sting, Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy taking time off, AJ Styles and others. 

“We’ve moved to a new era. We looked to others to run things before. They wouldn’t pull the trigger on the young talent. You put yourself into a spot. If you don’t do it fast enough, people won’t buy into it. In transition, you have to make it real.

Magnus will defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at TNA Lockdown, live on PPV next month. He will step into the ring against former tag team partner and Main Event Mafia member, the "Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe."
