Tyrus first explained how bad he wanted to be on WWE TV when he was with the company. He suggests that the reason for the Funkasaurus character was because he wanted to take the opportunity and run with it as opposed to waiting for a dominant heel push like some fans expected him to have.
Here is what he had to say:
“When I was in the WWE, you wanted to be on that TV, and it didn’t matter what situation I was in. Perfect example: when I left Alberto [Del Rio], they had run all the things for me to kill it and I was getting ready to be this big heel. Well, Mark [Henry] came back, excited and ready to go. Kane healed up, he was gonna be a heel. Big Show, it depends on his mood. And they were like, ‘do you wanna wait three months while we see what happens with Mark and Kane?’ And I was like, ‘no, give me whatever you want. I don’t give a d**n.'”
Continuing, Tyrus would explain at length why he opted to leave Impact Wrestling recently, despite only returning to the company during the January tapings this year:
“[Impact does] 300,000 on a good week as far as ratings go, so obviously what you’re doing is not working,” said Tyrus. “So I think it’s just best if I take my ball and go home and I’ll wait this out and see what happens as far as my wrestling career. But, it’s not a good thing for my brand to be a part of Impact when every week it’s a different change or a different person. It was just too much, and I felt that I had earned the right, out of the respect that my peers have for me in the ring and how I carry myself out the ring. If it’s a sinking ship, I’m not going down with it. So, I just thought it was best for me to move on.”
