Tracy: Definitely coming out with the Franchise at TNA!!!
Patch: What is the best match that you think you've ever had?
Tracy: My best match? I am still trying for that best match. Everytime I am in the ring I am learning something new. So hopefully everytime I step in the squared circle I can have a better match then the one before it.
Patch: Do you like to work from the ground or air?
Tracy: I try to do a little of both.
Patch: Do you have a favorite place to wrestle? If so, where?
Tracy: I wrestled at the Coliseum in Memphis for Jerry Lawler's promotion and you could feel the history in that building.
Patch: What can fans expect to see from you when they see you for the first time?

Patch: Who are your favorite wrestlers?
Tracy: Rick Rude, Macho Man, Rowdy Piper, Chris Benoit, Molly Holly, Dynamite Kid....
Patch: If you could wrestle anyone from the WWE, who would it be & why?
Tracy: Gail Kim, we started in the business together and I think we both have evolved since the last time we wrestled.
Patch: Do you prefer tags or singles?
Tracy: As long as I am in the ring it doesn't matter.
Patch: Who has been your toughest challenge?
Patch: Tracy, we give the stars we interview a chance to say anything they want about the wrestling business. This is your time. Shoot...
Tracy: This business is a lifestyle not just a part-time job to be taken lightly. Everything we eat, say, our actions outside and inside the ring, the time we spend travelling, training, our relationships... the list goes on and on. It is all based around the wrestling business. We put our bodies, hearts, and souls on the line every night to entertain the fans not because we have to but because we love this business!!!
Patch: Thank you for your time, & the best of luck in your career.
Tracy: Thank you.
Hugs and kisses
