Eddie Edwards On Signing With Impact Wrestling
“It wasn’t a tough decision for me,” Edwards said. “This has been my home for the past five years. Between Anthem, our office, the wrestlers, the ring crew, production, everything – I feel comfortable and confident in this team. I want to be one of the guys at the forefront of IMPACT Wrestling, trying to bring us forward to the next level.”
Edwards also spoke positively about the creative freedom he has.
“I have the most freedom I’ve ever had. It’s great. I get to go out there and try new things. (IMPACT’s) a very comfortable place for me, and it’s very exciting.”
In terms of 2018, it was an up and down year for Edwards. Everything worked out well in the end for him, however.
“Obviously I’ve been through a lot (this year), and it’s all been positive changes. As stupid as it sounds, getting hit with a baseball bat somehow worked into a positive. I enjoy the direction that I’m going, I enjoy the confidence that the company has put in me, and I enjoy trying to push the limit in the ring and outside the ring. I’m very grateful that the front office and everybody here has that faith in me.”
