Petey Williams was on the Wrestling Perspective podcast and talked a few host of topics along with the rumors of Chris Jericho coming to IMPACT Wrestling. You possibly can take heed to the interview proper right here, they despatched us these highlights:
The possibilities of Chris Jericho coming to IMPACT:
“At this stage I’d not be shocked because of all of the stuff you merely study. Canadian-based agency, Don Callis, Scott D’Amore, I’d not be shocked. Earlier than when he teased years previously coming in I could be like, ‘Ah, that isn’t gonna happen’, nonetheless now I’d not be as shocked. Jericho’s doing his private issue, he’s going off to New Japan and his cruise and all that type of stuff. He doesn’t really need WWE anymore. He’s acquired his band, all that type of stuff. So why not for him have considerably little little bit of satisfying? I’ve even heard him getting in his closing run backstage he’d be be getting heat with anybody on account of politics, whatever the case may be. He’s gonna come to IMPACT and there’d be none of that.
“However let me say this, I have no idea if he’s coming. I figured these alternatives will most certainly be held truly close to Scott, Don, most certainly Sonjay and Jimmy. These are most certainly the one four individuals who know if he comes. If he doesn’t can be found in or if he comes. However they don’t seem to be gonna unfold that, they don’t seem to be gonna let that leak out or whatever the case may be. After which the next question is what do they do? Who does he feud with? When does he come? How does he so it? All that type of stuff which can probably be for future podcasts if he ends up coming to IMPACT.”
If Jericho may probably be used to get a better TV deal for IMPACT:
“Oh yeah, fully. It’s enterprise, nearly. TV is enterprise, correct? So the hardest half about TV and all that type of stuff is getting on neighborhood television, okay? That’s the hardest half. You take a look at firms and stuff like that they often have all the experience on the planet, it’s merely exhausting to get a TV deal. There’s solely so many spots, so many TV reveals. There’s additional than merely wrestling reveals going for these spots. It’s exhausting.
“So we’re already a television agency. Fox Sports activities Internet, Spike TV, Vacation spot America, Pop TV we now have been on all these networks so we’re already on TV. So yeah, when you go to a definite neighborhood and even the an identical neighborhood, probably you want more money or irrespective of close to negotiations, correct now if we go they’ve been like, ‘that is our stars’. He would possibly want a person on… I have no idea, I’m throwing this in the marketplace, like on a Spike or one factor like that, they’re going to be like, ‘Ah I don’t truly know any of those people’. Proper? Perhaps, most likely. They might say, ‘Ah I do know a pair’, irrespective of. You will have Jericho on there, you present it to Spike they often’re like, ‘Oh yeah! Chris Jericho.’
“Again as soon as we first went to Spike and Rhyno was our champion, in Windsor at a BCW current we would have liked to place the belt once more on Jeff Jarrett. Why? As a result of he was our most recognizable explicit individual for us to go onto Spike TV with. Rhyno wasn’t. Jeff Jarrett was. And on the time, I really feel we now have been merely getting the Dudleys. In order that was like us getting bigger stars and all that type of stuff. So yeah positively use these names as promoting devices and bargaining devices and all these points for bigger contracts, for television or going to a definite neighborhood or whatever the case may be. So yeah, fully.”
If he feels IMPACT will resign with Pop or try to get on an excellent larger neighborhood:
“Yeah, you might be gonna use Jericho as a bargaining software program. Clearly you take a look at what networks are bigger, you take a look at what variety of viewers most likely can watch Pop, correct? Which is decrease than what variety of viewers can most likely watch Spike. I on a regular basis return to Spike on account of that’s most certainly an important neighborhood we now have ever been on. On the tip of the day, I really feel any wrestling agency would should be on broadcast television within the occasion that they’ve been sufficiently large. Not cable, nonetheless the ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox type issue, these ones the place you solely need an antenna to look at it, if wrestling have been that enormous as soon as extra. I suggest that’s the goal, correct? Or to get on cable reveals that are suppliers for… you perceive, they’re on all the cable packages and that type of stuff. So yeah, positively.
“If IMPACT can transfer to a community that has extra potential viewers, they’re gonna go for it. It’d be silly to not. You possibly can’t construct an organization and keep stagnant when you didn’t. But it surely’s not like I’m saying something that’s edgy or something as a result of I believe Pop is aware of that like, ‘Hey, this firm grows, they’re most likely gonna go away us or until we give them extra money or no matter, perhaps they would be the ones which might be like flagship present just about’. It’s like, ‘Hey, they’re gonna assist our community construct’ and in that case then they lean on us extra after which they’d must pay us extra money and all that type of stuff. Everyone is aware of it’s enterprise. Everyone.”
What Jericho would do to the IMPACT locker room:
“I’d say ‘nice’. I’ve by no means truly met Chris Jericho. He is aware of who I’m, simply judging from a few of his podcasts. He has interviewed guys who I’ve wrestled and all that type of stuff. I don’t know what his ideas are of me. I actually dont. I imply he could possibly be a type of guys that claims to me, ‘That Canadian Destroyer transfer is silly! You killed the enterprise!’ and all that type of stuff, or he could possibly be like, ‘Hey man, nice job getting that transfer over’ and all that type of stuff or no matter. I imply, I’m all for it. Something that’s gonna assist the corporate construct and stuff like that, I’ve by no means heard he has a unfavourable popularity, or a nasty popularity I ought to say, and he’s already a locker room chief over at WWE when he goes there. So what’s to not like? And he’s been within the enterprise since earlier than I even began wrestling. If something, I believe it might simply be good for our product just about.”
