D-Lo Brown keeps it classy when discussing departure from TNA

ImpactWrestling.com

D-Lo Brown is now talking about his recent departure from TNA and he's keeping it as classy as he can.

TNA seems to be on the tail end of its bad run of public relations blunders, as things have quieted down quite a bit after a period of activity that included failed contract negotiations with upper tier talent (relative to the rest of the roster, of course), outright releasing some wrestlers and office executives, and so on and so forth.

One of the many casualties was sometimes wrestler but oftentimes producer D-Lo Brown. His situation was unique because the company reportedly asked him to take a pay cut where he would be paid on a per appearance basis and even though he accepted those terms, fired him days later.

Despite that, he's staying classy in interviews discussing the promotion. Here he is talking to VOC Nation:

On TNA's financial problems and roster cuts: "Looking at things at 30,000 feet, I think that they're going through some growing pains right now. They're restructuring and trying to fortify their product. Taking the show on the road was a big financial burden. I think it's part of the natural growing process of the company; (the roster cuts) were like pruning a tree."

On whether TNA went on the road too soon: "Ready or not they had to go. It was time to move on. The crowds were becoming stale; they weren't adding to the product, they were taking away from it."

On whether his release was a surprise: "This was completely out of the blue. We just solidified a deal that Friday, and things changed over the weekend. It caught me completely by surprise."

On a possible comeback to TNA: "The door is always open to return; we parted amicably. I felt like I did a really good job there and I received a lot of praise from the upper echelon. I'm open to a reconciliation."

What a guy, right?
