During a podcast interview with Jim Ross, Abyss revealed some details about how close he came to signing with WWE back in 2006. John Laurinaitis had an offer on the table, but he backed out of the deal at the very last minute because he did not want to leave TNA after spending so many years there. Abyss also revealed to Ross that there were plans for him to feud with Undertaker and work a big match together at Wrestlemania.

TNA really wants Bram to do well, and it looks like the company is going to provide him with a bit of assistance. There are talk that management is considering the idea of putting him with James Storm and the Revolution stable, which currently consists of Abyss, Seiya Sanada, Manik and Mahabali Shera. Doing that would enable the 28 year old to not have to speak too often, and it would give him a major story to work with.
