Tyrus On Why He Left Impact Wrestling

Tyrus (also known as Brodus Clay/The Funkasaurus in WWE) spoke with Arm Drag Takedown with Pollo Del Mar on a number of pro wrestling topics. Here are some of the highlights via the Huffington Post:

Impact not wanting Tyrus to work for Jeff Jarrett when GFW was still a separate company:

“They didn’t want me working for Jeff. Basically, it came down to either stay with Impact or I could go with Global. I was making more with Impact, and Global didn’t have the resources to pay me what I was making.”

Jarrett attempting to get Tyrus to come to GFW and then Jarrett showing up at Impact’s tapings:

“He was basically saying it was better for me to come to Global, because Impact was about to fold. He was very adamant about that. Two weeks later, at the TV tapings, guess whose ass is there working the shows? Jeff Jarrett. I was like, ‘B—-, [are] you crazy?’ Who does that? Check it: If I would have quit and taken money out of my family’s mouths, went and worked there and then, ‘Oh, we’re going to have to go work Impact…’ How would that have gone?”

Once Jarrett began working with Impact, Tyrus knew he had to leave:

“When Jeff Jarrett came along — because him and I have an uncomfortable history — I just wasn’t comfortable with the management. … Unless [Jarrett] and I were going to have a sit down – which just wasn’t going to happen – I knew this was not going to be a spot for me. I just wasn’t comfortable with it.”
