The following are highlights of a new v2 Wrestling podcast interview with TNA star Bram:
His time with TNA so far: “This is a great company to work for. It’s very much up my alley. It’s similar to the stuff I used to watch as a kid, so to be here and be with the talent that I’m around, it doesn’t get any better than that.”
The name Bram: “TNA came up with that. They were searching for a British name that was unique. And I think they searched where I came from and somehow Bram popped up and then that was that. It’s good because it only has four letters in it so it’s easy to spell! I think also Bram Stoker too because I have a dark side so maybe that had something to do with it too. I don’t think it’s a generic name. I’m good with it now. When people yell Bram, I know that’s me.”
His friendship with Magnus: “And that’s real too – that’s a shoot, that one. We used to wrestle on the UK scene and we would bump into each other and that’s when we became best buds. So being with him here now, after all that we have gone through, for me is absolutely fantastic. To come here and beat everyone up with my best mate, it doesn’t get any better than that.”
TNA’s backstage atmosphere: “This locker room is one of the best that I have been part of. Everyone busts their ass, the boys are great, the office is great, all the bosses are fantastic, they all keep us in the loop, everyone wants best for us from top to bottom so the morale is always, from what I’ve seen, always spectacular. We all go out there and bust our asses, we put on the best show that we can, regardless of what’s floating around. It’s a great vibe – it really is.”
Working for WWE NXT vs. TNA: “There is a lot more freedom [in TNA]. If I have an opinion, I feel that I can voice it slightly better. It’s all generally the same. It’s a tough question, but being in developmental, because in their eyes you are still not 100% ready, there’s more schooling on it and more micro management.”
