• Eddie Edwards Comments On Impact Wrestling Collaborating With Other Promotions

During a recent interview with Wrestling Epicenter, Eddie Edwards talked about the new direction of Impact wrestling, re-signing with Impact Wrestling, if Impact and ROH could work together for an event, Impact collaborating with other promotions and more.

Below are the highlights:

On the new direction of Impact wrestling:

“I love it. From the office to the boys and the girls in the back to the production, we’re all on that same page. One of the first things Scott and Don told us was nothing is going to be completely fixed, we’re not going to turn this thing around in one day. We’re going to do it day by day, step by step. That is exactly what we’re doing. The lines of communication are open between everybody. We all know what we’re doing. We all know what our goal is. Our goal is to make Impact the best show we can. They preached that from the beginning. We’re all on board with that. It is an exciting time. Obviously I’m enjoying what I’m doing. But, everything with Impact is trending upward!”

On re-signing with Impact Wrestling:

“Impact Wrestling is a company and a product that I believe in. I want to help it succeed. I want be one of the guys to put this company on our back and say, “Lets go, boys!” I would feel wrong jumping ship. Everybody has different things that make them happy. Right now, this is the place for me. Impact is something that I take pride in and I want to be able to take things to the next level.”

On if Impact and ROH could work together for an event:

“I would never say it won’t happen. All I can do is cross my fingers and hope it does happen.”

On Impact collaborating with other promotions:

“Pro wrestling is a strange, strange world right now. That’s a good thing. You’ve got companies working together, partnerships. You’ve got guys working here, working there. It is a great time for wrestling and I think Impact is in a position to really capitalize on that. I would love us to do more shows with other well known companies. The more we get to work with each other, the better for the boys and the better for the fans!”

• SmackDown Live Star Dealing With Multiple Health Issues

According to the Wrestling Observer, SmackDown Live’s United States Champion Jeff Hardy is dealing with multiple health issues.

Hardy injured his leg during his entrance for a dark match after the May 17th episode of SmackDown Live. He’s also dealing with a nerve injury and having numbness in his fingers.

Due to all these reasons, WWE is protecting Hardy by having him work Fatal 4 Way matches at Live Events.

Jeff hasn’t performed the ‘Swanton Bomb’ during his recent Live Event matches after hitting the Twist of Fate. Instead of the Swanton Bomb, Jeff has been hitting a splash after the Twist of Fate.

You can check it out below:

However, Jeff delivered a Swanton Bomb on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live (possibly not taking too much risk for live events).
