Eddie Edwards on Why He Re-Signed With Impact, NXT Call-Up News
Posted On July 10, 2020
It was reported earlier this week that longtime Impact Wrestling competitor Eddie Edwards recently decided to sign a new deal with the promotion. Edwards has been wrestling for Impact for about five years now and has achieved a lot during his time there, including having several memorable matches and winning title after title. In fact, he even won the Impact Wrestling Championship on one occasion. Impact announced earlier this week that Edwards decided to sign a new multi-year deal with Impact. At a time when there have been departures from Impact from longtime stars like Abyss and Sonjay Dutt, Edwards decided to stay with the promotion because he believes that he still has more left to accomplish.
Eddie Edwards discussed his new contract with Impact and why he chose to stick with the promotion in a new interview shared on Impact’s official website. Edwards called the choice a “tough decision” but ultimately decided to stay with the promotion because of how well he knows the wrestlers and staff. Edwards says that he really believes in Impact and wants to take the show to another level someday. He also discussed being a locker room leader for Impact during the same interview. Edwards says that he loves everybody who works for Impact and tries to offer guidance and advice to those who want it.

During Raw this week, WWE surprised fans by calling up four of the top names on the NXT brand. NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black, and Ricochet are now part of the main roster permanently. Although some wrestlers always dream about joining Raw or SmackDown someday, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that some NXT Superstars are actually hoping to stay in WWE’s developmental system. In fact, the Observer even reported that one top NXT Superstar “dreads” the day that he receives his call-up. Of course, there are still others who cannot wait for the promotion to come, but not everybody is as eager about the idea as they would have been years ago.
