Most memorable storyline:
“I would have to say the most memorable one I’ve done is the one I did with Hulk Hogan back in 2010, ’11 and ’12. The guy is, needless to say, a legend. So to do that angle and that storyline with him was really incredible.”Working for TNA since 2002:
“I would like to think that I’m a very loyal person. I’ve always been loyal to the company; they’ve been very loyal back to me. So I think the reason I’ve never left is that I’ve always felt like it was home to me. I always felt like I had a good role, good position within the company. I’ve been a feature wrestler there for over a decade, and now I’m actually behind the scenes doing some producing and some of the writing.”
Origin of “Abyss” name:
“A mentor of mine came up with it — Dirty Dutch Mantel — an old time wrestler. When I went to Puerto Rico, he gave me the name. When I first heard it I thought, ‘I don’t know if I like it,’ but it certainly grew on me fast. It was the best career change I ever made going from Prince Justice to Abyss.”
