TNA wrestler Robbie E. recently spoke with Ring Rust Radio to discuss multiple facets of his career and wrestling. Below are some of the highlights of the conversation.
On making his debut on “The Amazing Race” Friday night alongside his real-life girlfriend, Brooke Adams:
“When you think of me and when you think of Brooke, you think of two of the wildest and craziest people in wrestling. I think we are perfect for reality TV. We are the perfect two people to race around the world and do a whole bunch of crazy stuff. It is going to be a wild and exciting 12 weeks. You’re going to see Robbie E. do things you probably didn’t think he would ever be willing to do. Let’s just say I don’t like animals.”
He also discussed his thoughts on what is going on with TNA right now, especially on the heels of news of an uncertain future:
“I think change is a good thing. It keeps things fresh and exciting. The new night is a shock to some people. Our ratings are already where they normally were. Wrestling really hasn’t been on Wednesday nights before. I think it’s a new setting, it’s ours, and we own it. As far as whether we end up staying on Spike TV or going somewhere else it doesn’t really matter. Our fan base is going to follow and TNA is here to stay.”
“E” also gave some of his favorite moments in the ring thus far:
“The records speak for themselves and the longevity speaks for itself. I’ve been here four years and wrestling is always constantly changing. I remember when I started in TNA; the locker room I was in about 95% of those guys are gone now. When you would have looked at it, they probably would have said Robbie E. would have been one of the early ones out. I’m still here and I’m not going anywhere. That proves right there that I deserve to be where I am at. Look at the gold bro, look at the records. I would say winning the tag titles for a second time at the One Night Only P.P.V., putting a beat down on Ronnie from Jersey Shore, and breaking my big VIP sign over my former bouncer. That was something funny I will never forget because it’s fun to break stuff over people’s heads.”

Some good things here from him. “The Amazing Race” will be good exposure for TNA and himself.
