On how he got his break into Impact Wrestling:
Braxton Sutter: It took a really long time. My story was a little different. I didn’t get my break in Impact until I was in my mid 30’s so it was late in age, you know what I mean? For me, I had to just focus in. After I was wrestling for over 10 years and I was over 30 I realized that no one is going to do this for me. I change a lot of things and started working a lot harder. I started traveling more too. I went to the U.K. with Global Force Wrestling and I went to Smash Wrestling in Canada. I did a few dates with Impact as well. It was after the last week of a three-week tour they offered me a contract.
On starting in Impact during its most tumultuous period:
BS: Since I have been there management has changed a bunch. Honestly, it hasn’t really felt like major changes. When I first got there the big thing on the internet was that there was low morale backstage at Impact. I never experienced it. There was one time we were filming one of the smaller shows and Earl Hebner did a Ric Flair spot and everyone backstage lost it. I remember Hurricane Shane Helms grabbing me and screaming, “Low morale! Low morale!”
On where the “low morale” rumors started:
BS: I would imagine that it was just someone who left the company who complained. Even with all of the changes I have never seen a negative effect. There is never much to complain about.
