Drew Galloway

TNA World Heavyweight Champion Drew Galloway recently spoke with Scott Fishman of Channel Guide Magazine to promote Sunday’s Slammiversary pay-per-view. The full interview is at this link. Below are highlights:

The current TNA product:

“Everyone has really found their character and there are some exciting feuds going on. It’s not just one thing going on. There are a lot of unique characters and stuff going on creatively right now. I think this has been the strongest we have been in a while. I think for anyone who hasn’t given TNA a chance recently, I say for you to give it one shot. I guarantee it will change your mind because I genuinely believe in the product. I wouldn’t just say that.”

The recent WWE releases:

“For selfish reasons, I just want to be around all my friends. The reality is there are such talented guys out there right now. You have Cody [Rhodes], who is starting his plan. He is a smart guy and starting to plant the seeds. He is going to be just fine like I was. Damien Sandow is already getting himself out there. Whatever he decides to do, he will do well. Wade [Barrett] and I are very close friends. He is taking time out and enjoying the first bit of time off he has had in a while. You never know where he will turn up. So, selfishly, I would like to be around all my buddies. They would be massive assets to any company.”

Defending against Bobby Lashley at Slammiversary:

“I think we will be turning heads with this PPV. I love the chance to work with Bobby. I work a physical style myself. A lot of times, it’s me being the aggressor. Now I’m going against a guy who is bigger, faster, stronger this time. It’s really something to sink my teeth into and a chance to get everyone’s attention. I’m trying to create that believability in all my matches. But here you have the most believable guy. I never treated a match with him like a pro wrestler. I treat them like the beast he is. When you are against a guy like a Bobby Lashley, you have to be smart because he can snap a leg in one second. I treat him with that respect. I think it will increase the believability of it all because he is a legit as it gets.”
