Petey Williams made an appearance on the Wrestling Perspective podcast where he thoroughly discussed the future of IMPACT. One of the biggest topics he covered was on the possibility of Chris Jericho making his way into the company, especially considering Jericho’s recent booking of IMPACT talent versus Ring Of Honor talent for the Jericho Cruise. Petey admitted he doesn’t have a clue whether Jericho is seriously considering it, but gives some pretty good input on the situation and why he does believe it could happen.
At this point I wouldn’t be shocked because of everything you just read. Canadian-based company, Don Callis, Scott D’Amore, I wouldn’t be shocked. Before when he teased years ago coming in I would be like, ‘Ah, that’s not gonna happen’, but now I wouldn’t be as shocked. Jericho’s doing his own thing, he’s going off to New Japan and his cruise and all that kind of stuff. He doesn’t really need WWE anymore. He’s got his band, all that kind of stuff. So why not for him have a little bit of fun? I’ve even heard him getting in his last run backstage he’d be be getting heat with somebody because politics, whatever the case may be. He’s gonna come to IMPACT and there’d be none of that.
But let me say this, I have no idea if he’s coming. I figured those decisions will probably be held really close to Scott, Don, probably Sonjay and Jimmy. Those are probably the only four people that know if he comes. If he doesn’t come in or if he comes. But they’re not gonna spread that, they’re not gonna let that leak out or whatever the case may be. And then the next question is what do they do? Who does he feud with? When does he come? How does he so it? All that kind of stuff which will probably be for future podcasts if he ends up coming to IMPACT.
Williams would go on to talk about how adding Y2J to the IMPACT team could be a great benefit for future TV deals. Listen to the full interview below.
