In an interview with The One Sided Ring, TNA President Dixie Carter highly endorsed Magnus as a future top superstar in the making. "Magnus could be the future of our company. He was only 21-years-old when I signed him and I don’t think people realize that because he looked so much more mature than that. I found him in a magazine. I was flying to New York and I was looking at a magazine they had sent me that AJ Styles had a six-page feature in, and then I just happened to flip to the next page and I was like 'Holy crap, who is that guy?!' "I called a couple of the guys [in the UK] and I'm like 'Tell me about this guy over there.' I started doing a bit of research and we had him on that first tour. He’s really grown. He’s a fabulous talker and his in-ring work has come so far. He’s gorgeous and carries himself like a superstar. Magnus is the real deal." Do something about it then Dixie! Magnus gets a push for one month strong, the next month he vanishes, next month gets pushed again and so back and forth, back and forth.
