Charlie Haas was one of the mainstays of WWE’s Ruthless Aggression Era as he was part of the highly successful tag team called Team Angle alongside Shelton Benjamin. They were two-time WWE Tag Team Champions and held the ROH World Tag Team titles twice.
During the latest round of Impact Wrestling tapings, Charlie Haas made his shocking debut and a match with Josh Alexander was set up. This was certainly an exciting turn of events for that crowd. Haas took to Twitter today and issued a statement on what happened at Sunday’s Impact Wrestling tapings in Dallas.
I’d like to start by thanking all the great wrestling fans for their reaction to my debut at the Impact Wrestling TV Tapings this weekend. It was an outstanding experience with a great company. Unfortunately, during what was an incredible match with Josh Alexander, I suffered a concussion after slipping while heading into the corner. Per the video attached in this thread, my head caught Josh’s knee & the rope almost simultaneously in one of those freak wrestling accidents you can’t explain. I want to thank the GREAT Impact management & roster for the care & attention they showed me after the incident. I can’t say enough good things & I truly look forward to working with them again in the near future. I just wanted everyone to know I will be just fine, and contrary to some reports, Charlie Haas is Not Dead. (Shirt coming soon)
In fact, this appearance with Impact has lit a new fire in me. So for the first time in over 5 years, I will be taking bookings nationally in 2022. There are a ton of crazy & unique matchups happening these days & I want to be a part of it all. We will have more information on this in the coming days, but for the time being you can email BookCharlieHaas@gmail.com or reach out to Kurt Zamora on Twitter @KTankZamora for more information. You’re about to see a lot more of Charlie Haas.
Thank you again for your support & concern. God Bless!
Haas also tweeted a video clip from the match with caption, “Here is the video mentioned in the note. Thank you again to @Walking_Weapon & everyone at Impact for their first class treatment! We’ll do it again & I can’t wait! Also, I can’t thank enough @TheSuperTex @AaronPresley360 & @KTankZamora for everything they’ve done.”
Haas debuted in November 2020 for the popular SWE Fury promotion in Texas, and has since been a top star for the promotion. With Rodney Mack and Max Castellanos, he currently holds the SWE World Heavyweight Title and the SWE Six-Man Tag Team Titles. He’s now confirmed that he’ll be back on the road full-time in 2022. Keep an eye out for more on Haas. Below are his complete tweets.
