Few people have seen every part of the card of Impact Wrestling like Chris Sabin. But through his career, he has made a lasting impression on the TNA audience.
Sabin recently spoke to The Wrestling Epicenter where he revealed that he felt that this 2013 run as TNA World Champion was a disappointment. After all, he did only hold the title for 28 days before dropping it to Bully Ray, the same man he took the title from.
“Overall, I think it was pretty disappointing. I don’t think I was ready for it. I was injured for about two years straight with knee surgeries back to back, first the right knee, then left. I was back for only two months after being out for two years and not only that, I was a tag team wrestler for several years before that. I definitely wanted it to happen, but looking back on it, I know inside that I wasn’t ready. I was still discovering myself. There was new management.”
“Everything about TNA was different compared to the two years before that. Plus, it only lasted three weeks, as well, but I’m so grateful it happened. It was a cool experience … The moment of the one-two-three and the crowd went crazy is a memory that I will have forever. And, just to be able to say that I won the World Heavyweight Title is really cool, but I know I can do better.”
“That is why it is disappointing. I know I can do better. So, I hope I have another chance in the future.”
You never know if Sabin might get another run with the title if he returns to Impact Wrestling. He is now competing for ROH and very excited about everything the company is doing. But whatever happens, might not change his opinion of how his short run with the company’s top title went down in 2013.
