He states that entering free agency was a scary period of time. 

On TNA programming, there is an ongoing feud between Josh Alexander and Hammerstone that started after Alexander picked up a win in their singles match at Hard To Kill

Hammerstone got his win back at Sacrifice and now the two are set to have their rubber match on April 20th at Rebellion.

The Battleground Podcast welcomed Hammerstone onto their show and he discussed signing with TNA. He shared that it was scary to walk away from the stability he had at MLW. 

It’s great (being signed to TNA), especially coming off the free agency time. It was a little scary because obviously, I entered free agency by choice because I had a lot of faith in myself that I had enough value in the professional wrestling world that I would end up somewhere worth being. Luckily, I did. But that being said, to work over a decade of your life to finally get to a point where you are making enough money in wrestling to pay all your bills and then to decide to walk away from that on a gamble that something better is going to come along, it was scary. It was a little bit nerve-racking. So that period of free agency, as exciting as it was, I was really hoping the right opportunity came along and presented itself and when I had debuted at Hard To Kill and then me and TNA got in talks, everything just lined up and everything was just perfect, it was everything I wanted and I’m happy to have a new home in professional wrestling.

There is going to be coverage of the 4/11 episode of TNA iMPACT here on POST Wrestling.
