Re: Pope Let's TNA Contract Run Out; Done With Company
Apart from being injury-prone I remember seeing an interview with him when he said he was at College studying for a Business degree (or Accountancy or Law - something like that). This may have limited his availability (although obviously, there are also the rumours of him having a bit of an attitude backstage, too, which would also explain his booking).
This could also affect his future plans. He's given the majors a shot and been dropped by both. If he's got his degree now, it's conceivable he could just stop altogether - after all, he's given it a shot, it didn't work out, and now he would undoubtedly make more money working a white-collar job than wrestling in the Indies. Unlike a lot of guys, it appears he has options outside of wrestling.
Who knows? People sometimes forget that wrestlers have their own priorities and lives outside of who wants them / how in demand they are.
