— Shane Sewell has issued his first public comments regarding his departure from TNA Wrestling in a blog on his Facebook account.
“As I am sure that most of you have read or heard over the past weekend, I am no longer working with TNA Wrestling,” Sewell wrote.” There’s really not too much to tell you other than my contract with TNA was up for renewal, and unfortunately we just couldn’t come to amicable terms for a new deal. Both sides really did try to make it work.”
“It was just business, and no painful behind-the-scenes drama. TNA has some great people in the company, and it was a pleasure having the opportunity to work with some of the best talent in the business today.”
He also took a veiled shot at Booker T and the TNA Legends Championship.
“So what’s next??? Well to start with, I am going to be working regularly back in my beautiful adopted homeland of Puerto Rico,” Sewell wrote. “A place where I don’t need a cheap knock-off belt to be called a legend. A country where my years of blood, sweat and tears for the wrestling business and it’s fans have already EARNED that legends status for me. A place where I can’t wait to go toe-to-toe with some of the visiting “Main-Eventers” while they’re away from the safety of their network TV script-writers and back room politics… Can you dig THAT???”
