The following Quinton “Rampage” Jackson interview was recently conducted by impactwrestling.com

 

rampageQuestion:

Growing up in Memphis (known for being an incredible wrestling town), were you connected to wrestling in any way when you were young?

Rampage Jackson:

I did wrestle in high school, and I was a huge wrestling fan when I was growing up. I remember the first time I went to wrestle in high school, all they had were the mats set up, and I wondered where the ropes were and where the top turnbuckle was! But wrestling really shaped me, and I wouldn’t be here today without it.

Question:

When you return to TNA, what is your first order of business?

Rampage Jackson:

Take care of business. I don’t care who is in front of me, but I’ve got some unfinished business in the ring, and everyone better be ready for Rampage.

Question:

What do you do differently to train for a pro wrestling match rather than a MMA fight?

Rampage Jackson:

I’ve been telling everyone how hard training for wrestling is. Some of the best athletes in the world wrestle. Even going back and forth on the ropes hurts. It’s tough as hell, but I really have a lot of fun with it. You get to be a big kid again and entertain people. It’s what I love to do.

Question:

When you made your debut with TNA in 2013, which TNA roster member impacted you the most?

Rampage Jackson:

It was great being around all the TNA Superstars, guys like Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle and being around a guy like Hector Guerrero. I’ve been training with Chavo, and he’s been huge for me.

Question:

Out of the TNA Superstars, past or present, give me the 5 wrestlers who make up your A-team!

Rampage Jackson:

Hogan, Angle, Samoa Joe, Sting, and Magnus. Main Event Mafia Time!!!

Question:

You have had a professional MMA career since 1999 and have established a legacy across the globe through your epic battles with other MMA fighters. What legacy do you hope to create in pro wrestling?

Rampage Jackson:

I want to entertain fans, no question. It’s what I want to do for my fans in MMA, and it’s what I want to do when I get in that ring for TNA.
