Mendes debuts the Rosa's Thorn...
- The Examiner recently interviewed TNA world champion Eric Young. Below are some highlights.
Young on his beard and Off The Hook: "I think if I shaved my beard I might lose both of my jobs. The beard is one of my things now and has been since 2009. I had a beard when it was considered weird. If I shave now people would not recognize me."
Eric Young on the reaction to his winning the title: "The beard makes me completely recognizable. There is no hiding from it – and I don't want to hide from it. People I meet love seeing the title. They tell me congrats Champ – and it is a thrill. It will never get old."
Young on learning from his co-workers: "The locker room at TNA is a wealth of knowledge. Kurt Angle is an example of a guy you can't help but learn from, and there are certainly others. I am friends with many of the guys on the roster and I am always learning and exploring how to get better."
His thoughts on being versatile: "Versatility is something I pride myself on and have focused on from the first day I started wrestling. I've won every belt in TNA – including Knockouts Tag titles. I can face anyone and go wherever the match leads and takes me. Versatility is my strong suit. It is hard to prepare for someone like me."

Ugliest face ever, but the Rosa's Thorn looks great!! #WWERockford last night!
