EXCLUSIVE: Mark Madden’s Negotiations With TNA Are…




I’m not going to TNA. I haven’t talked to anybody there. I don’t expect to. I don’t want to.

The Internet report that Kevin Nash wants Taz out and me in as TNA color commentator originated with fans at a Pittsburgh comic book convention Nash appeared at. I was there, and somebody asked me if I wanted to work for TNA. I said no. Nash joked that he was trying to talk me into it, and I replied that I wanted Traci Brooks as a signing bonus. Traci was right there and my God, does any woman have a better body? Frankie Kazarian may commit suicide by implant.

We were having a laugh. That’s it. Taz does a good job, and TNA couldn’t afford me. I never committed 100 percent to wrestling because I knew the real money, for me, was in radio. I was right.

That said, I know I could do a tremendous job having learned from my mistakes on Nitro and after another decade of successfully talking into a microphone five days a week. If I constantly draw monster ratings on radio, I certainly have the cutting-edge charisma and mic skills to provide entertainment during a couple hours of TV per week, especially at a time when Matt Striker gets canonized. Talk about having a laugh.
