Why Dreamer Left TNA, Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Talks Wrestling

— MTV Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Ortiz-Magro recently spoke to The New York Post about working with TNA. He said wrestling was fun but he wants to continue acting and doing Jersey Shore, and will not pursue a career in the ring. Regarding his experience on Impact Wrestling, here was his statement:

“It as really a great experience [working for TNA]. I grew up watching it and now I get to see it firsthand and experience it. You get too see that they really work hard.”

— Tommy Dreamer was a guest this week on the Busted Open radio show, which airs every Monday and Wednesday on Sirius 92 and XM 207. Here’s what he had to say about his decision to leave TNA:

“There was a lot of things. It was.. contracts and it just whatever. I didn’t put up with a lot of stuff in WWE, I’m not gonna’ put up with stuff in TNA. And you know what? I miss everybody in WWE, and I miss everybody in TNA, but,..I’m happy in my life and at 40 years old, if I can’t, I don’t want to say do it my way, but again, not seeing things done logically, and looking at stuff from a business point of view. Then I just say it doesn’t make sense to me, and it’s like no matter how hard I work, no matter how much I destroy my body, no matter how much other guys destroy their body, if stuff’s not going to change, to me that really, really bothers me, and I don’t know. I guess I don’t want to be a part of it.

“I don’t want negativity in my life just because I’m in a way different stage in my life. I love wrestling. I‘ve loved it since I was a little kid, and I don’t want to be the bitter old veteran who hates wrestling, and for a while like when stuff doesn’t make sense or they just do stuff to do it, and just do it, I get so mad. I just..I’d rather just walk away and watch it from afar, and be like an armed chair quarterback on Monday’s or Tuesday’s, ya’ know?”
