Eddie Edwards Talks BFG, Ace Austin/Alisha Angle, Plus More! | News


Eddie Edwards spoke to Wrestling Inc on their latest WINCLY podcast about the Ace Austin angle with Eddie’s wife Alisha, and much more. You can see our highlights below.

Eddie on this year’s Bound For Glory show-

“It felt like a big show. It felt like the closing of a chapter and the opening of a new book. We knew a lot of eyes in pro wrestling would be on us and it was our chance to deliver as a company and roster. It’s a PPV but also a taste of what Impact Wrestling can be. This is what you’ll be able to see week after week on TV so that was the mentality going in. It was a refreshing state of mind for everybody as we know the direction we’re headed, so let’s just go there full steam ahead.”

On the angle with Ace Austin and his wife Alisha-

“It was different and something we hadn’t tried. Anytime we get to work Impact on television, it’s always cool because who says they get to do that with their spouse? We were very grateful to get to do that and in the end Kenny got to beat Ace Austin’s ass.

“In the end it’s gonna be wrapped up with a nice bow on it. We are husband and wife so we do have discussions and decide how we feel about it. Impact is very open to hearing our side of view and if there was anything we didn’t feel comfortable with, then they would be happy to change and oblige us.”

On the changes since moving to AXS TV-

“For myself and for my close friends I’ve spoken to, we’re very happy. AXS TV if fully behind us with promotion, graphics and production. From top to the bottom, we’re all on the same page and moving in the same direction. “I’ve been through a couple of changeovers where you don’t know what the next step is gonna be. My job as a pro wrestler is to go out there and wrestle and hope for the best. We all know what our goal is and our goal is to make Impact the best it can be. I’m very confident in our ability to do that and it’s a unique time, but it’s a great time.”

On Ken Shamrock and Joey Ryan working with Impact-

“I think it’s awesome. I was and still am a huge Ken Shamrock fan. “To see him a part of Impact is surreal to me. He’s a guy I looked up to and still do. To see him putting the effort that he is right now – you can hear it in his voice and he’s very into what’s going on. He’s doing what’s best for Impact Wrestling. Sometimes you get guys who come in and they’re just looking out for themselves, but that’s not the case with Shamrock.

“The stuff with Joey got people talking and that is a success right there. We got people to tune in to see if Ken Shamrock will grab Joey Ryan’s penis on TV. That’s a good day right there.”

Eddie faces Ace once again at No Surrender on December 7th in Dayton. Tickets on sale now at the link.

The main goal of our events calendar is helping to sell Pro Wrestling tickets for as many promotions as we can find from around the world. Each event has ticket links, venue info, date and time. But some events have a lot more, and are basically event previews. It depends on the info available at the time we post the event. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY Wrestling event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. We maintain over 150 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We have already posted over 2000 events since we started this in late 2018. Some days have 1-3 events and some have over 20 on the same day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages. If you’re a fan who went to an event, feel free to leave a comment about it. This calendar is totally free, owned and operated by Pro Wrestling fans wanting to help other fans.
