Robbie E. Speaks On His Big Break In TNA, Title Runs, “The Wrestler”
TNA Impact Wrestling star Robbie E. recently spoke with the What Culture website about a number of wrestling-related topics. Below are highlights from the interview.
On his big break in TNA: “I had a tryout with them through Terry Taylor, and at the time they were looking for…the Jersey Shore Show was big, I’m from there: you’re sitting here…look at me! So they kind of just put two and two together and when they said “OK let’s see if he can get it done in the ring” and fortunately enough for me it clicked, they offered me a contract the day of my try out match.”
On sorta-kinda being in the movie “The Wrestler”: “You know, I was but I wasn’t. Here’s a little secret; I was planned to be in it, my name was listed and everything, but I actually ended up getting an overseas tour. So like a few days before, I wasn’t able to be there for filming, but somehow my name still ended up in the credits, so I kind of got the best of both worlds.”
On his best moments during his X-Division and T.V. Title runs: “Honestly, the highlights were of course the days that I won them: beating Jay Lethal for the X-Division title at Turning Point and then one year later beating Eric Young for the Television Title. But through my TV Title run I had great runs with RVD and D-Von, I got some wins…which I haven’t gotten in a while.”
