Faithful employees are a scarce commodity in all professions in the current age, and the wrestling industry is no different. Take for example, TNA. It has just two of its founding members still left on the roster and this incident will make you do a double-take.
We're referring to 'The Monster' Abyss. The heaviest wrestler to hold the TNA X-Division Championship revealed in a recent Reddit AMA that he was once approached to be the man standing opposite the Undertaker in a WrestleMania ring and he mind-bogglingly refused:
"Yes that’s true. I ended up staying with TNA and I’m so happy that I did. I have no regrets, I was an original member of TNA since the beginning and I couldn’t leave something I helped build from the ground up."
To recall the cliche, if you looked up "Faithful" in the dictionary, you'd find a picture of Abyss.
The ridiculously loyal former TNA Heavyweight Champion also stated that he doesn't regret all the hardcore matches he's had over the course of his career, according to wrestlezone.com: "Good question and no I don’t. I don’t regret anything I have ever done for TNA, I’ve always enjoyed working here. I don’t regret them and I’d do them all over again if I could."
Abyss, real name Christopher Joseph Parks, is the only TNA original apart from James Storm still with the floundering promotion.
