Santino Marella established himself as a fan favorite in WWE from the late 2000s to early 2010s, thanks to his memorable comedic character. With his exaggerated Italian accent, iconic unibrow, and impeccable comedic timing, Marella quickly won over audiences. After leaving WWE, he has since continued his career in Impact Wrestling, leaving a lasting impression on fans everywhere. In fact, he doesn’t rule out competing in the ring.

During Impact Wrestling’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view, Santino Marella made his shocking appearance at the event, as he confronted Moose after the former Impact World Champion used unfair means to beat Impact Digital Media Champion Joe Hendry.

Santino Marella revealed himself as the new Director of Authority and restarted the match, which helped Hendry pick up the win. It was then confirmed he is now a part of the company.

While speaking with Sescoops, the former WWE Superstar talked about his current experience with Impact Wrestling. Marella also made it clear that he could wrestle in the company.


I don’t know when I will be distributing or administering the first cobra, but it’s always with me. I think I can wrestle a little bit. I’ve got some injuries, so it really just depends on how meticulous I am with my rehab. I have a bad back, so I’ll really need to warm it up. I can’t do it consistently but I can do a match here or there if need be.

It remains to be seen how Santino Marella fares as the new Director of Authority in Impact Wrestling. Nonetheless, fans are certainly glad to see Marella in a pro wrestling company again.
