Could IMPACT Wrestling be waiting for another company to walk through the forbidden door? According to George Iceman, it will be happening.
Iceman, President of Destiny Wrestling and the host of “Iceman’s Intel” on IMPACT’s BTI show, was a recent guest on the Total Nonstop Impact podcast and said talent from a third promotion besides AEW and NJPW will be coming to IMPACT soon.
“Fasten your seatbelts. You ain’t seen nothing yet. I promise you, IMPACT is gonna shock the world. They’ve been taken advantage of. A lot of people didn’t give them the credit that’s due. They’ve been hustling.”
“If you see Scott and Don, their earpieces never leave their ear. If I go visit let’s say Scott in Windsor, that guy is up til 3-4 o’clock in the morning on deals, hustling, styling, rocking it, talking storylines, scripts. The guy is hustling. Three deals in place—we got AEW, we got New Japan, there’s a third one – that’s another scoop. Watch out. So there’s a lot that’s happening. Fasten your seatbelts. This is just the beginning.”
Konnan had recently revealed on Twitter that IMPACT had been looking to bring in more Mexican talent besides Black Taurus but the company was waiting for their visas. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter had also reported that El Hijo del Vikingo was on the company’s radar.
