Abyss has been so loyal to TNA and also rejected WWE's offer to face The Undertaker in 2007. One could only imagin had The Monster from TNA come and clashed the WWE's legendary phenom at Wrestlemania 23 or even during Kane's unmasked time or back to his masked persona there could've been the chance had Abyss come and fought the Big Red Machine in the ultimate monster dream match in wrestling history. But if WWE and TNA had a one time special show then it would've happened and then we could've had Kane and Abyss go at it and Sting vs Undertaker.
Abyss has left a trail of bloodshed, carnage, destruction and devastation in his wake since coming to TNA and over the years he's won titles and made great moments that his fans like myself will remember forever. I met Abyss twice during his tour in England, first time in 2015, 10 years after first watching in 2005 where he and had a photo taken and got his autograph and a poster match photo where I thanked him for everything he did and hugged him for him but in return he pulled me back in to give me a thank you hug of his own and he was crying happily as was I which was so special. It also made me think that this would be how me and Kane would've had together. A year later in 2016, Abyss and I met again where he cheered me up after I lost my dog Yogi who died that year and he comforted me for the lost and showed just much of a loving and hugging man he was from under the mask despite his Monster gimmick. He would shake my hand or high five me whenever we passed before the show and after it. Those moments were really special and ones that made my life worth living.
Seeing my TNA hero be where he is now, I'm so proud as a wrestling fan. Congratulations Abyss! You were the reason I became a TNA fan since 2005 and you are the number 1 ever! Well done! The one and only Monster of TNA who no one will ever replicate.
