Impact Wrestling recently interviewed Eddie Edwards, who discussed signing a new deal and why he made that decision. Below are some highlights from the interview, courtesy of Impact.

Eddie Edwards on his decision to re-up with Impact: “It wasn’t a tough decision for me. This has been my home for the past five years. Between Anthem, our office, the wrestlers, the ring crew, production, everything – I feel comfortable and confident in this team. I want to be one of the guys at the forefront of IMPACT Wrestling, trying to bring us forward to the next level.”

Eddie Edwards on having positive changes this year: “Obviously I’ve been through a lot (this year), and it’s all been positive changes. As stupid as it sounds, getting hit with a baseball bat somehow worked into a positive. I enjoy the direction that I’m going, I enjoy the confidence that the company has put in me, and I enjoy trying to push the limit in the ring and outside the ring. I’m very grateful that the front office and everybody here has that faith in me.”

Edwards on trying to help wrestlers in the locker room: “I mentioned comfort – I’m definitely more comfortable being a little bit outspoken in the locker room and trying to help fellow wrestlers. I enjoy giving my input, as long as I don’t step on people’s toes. I enjoy my position on the roster and I love the people we have here.”
