Promoting his Steel Cage Match against Crimson tonight at TNA Lockdown, Matt Morgan revealed in an interview with Pro Wrestling Torch Livecast on Friday that his contract with TNA Wrestling expires in October and he would consider returning to WWE. Though he considers himself loyal to TNA, he’s a businessman first and would not rule out joining Vince McMahon’s organization.
“To say I wouldn’t go back would be dumb on my part and it would be a lie,” Morgan said. “But at the same time, I really am – I know people don’t like this answer who are pro-WWE and not so pro-TNA – but that’s the truth, I am loyal to those who are loyal to me. The minute, the day TNA stops being as loyal to me as I feel I am being to them, that’s a different discussion all to itself and I definitely would weigh my options a lot differently if and when that day ever came.”
Morgan adds that he’s “happy for the most part” with how TNA has been treated him since joining the organization in 2007.
“The Blueprint” also discusses the circumstances behind his departure from WWE in 2005, transitioning from bodyguard to pay-per-view headliner, working with Brock Lesnar and more.
