Magnus Talks Dixie Carter Noticing His Talent, Looking Up To Angle/Sting/Hogan

Posted by Matt Boone September 24, 2013 4 Comments

The following are highlights from a recent interview with TNA Impact Wrestling star Magnus:

On talents he looked up to before getting into the business: “I looked up to Kurt in particular when I decided to be a pro wrestler, and Sting and Hulk Hogan are both characters that captured my imaginations as a kid, but never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would be working alongside them by the time I made it to a high enough level.”

“I always dreamed of wrestling Kurt Angle, but even that was a pipe dream. So the fact that I’ve wrestled Sting and Kurt and appeared with Hulk is still surreal to me and means so much. But then to hear them publicly endorse me is one of the most gratifying feelings I have ever had. Sting was the first major name to speak up for me, and Kurt has been a supporter of mine for a long time. He’s a wonderful guy and I am so appreciative of all he has done for me and the business.”

On Dixie Carter seeing something in him early on: “Dixie saw something in me before anyone else, so in terms of how things are going for me now, I’m proud of myself and forever grateful for her for her support. I was determined not to let her down. Anytime someone takes a chance with me, I will do my absolute best to return on that faith. It was the same thing when Richard Woolfe [the former head of Sky 1] saw something in me for Gladiators that the other producers did not. And it will be the same for anyone else that sees something in me: I’ll deliver.”

      So if Cody is gonna still be off tv that probably means Randy is gonna win or Cody doesn’t apologize or something. Probably Randy winning tho since Cody isn’t gonna be on tv.

        Right. And then their father will probably return next week to challenge Orton as well and drag this on so Cody can get through his wedding and honey moon before returning.
