Former IMPACT World Champion Eddie Edwards recently spoke with WrestleTalk’s Tempest about new IMPACT signing ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey.
Edwards noted that he looks forward to stepping into the ring with the prospect, saying:
“I think there’s no limit for Mike Bailey at this point. He’s gonna come in, he’s gonna try, you know, you wanna make a name for yourself. You wanna go out there, you wanna set the world on fire. That’s what IMPACT Wrestling has been about – it’s been about giving people opportunities who may not have had them in the past.
“And Mike is one of those guys where he hasn’t been given that full shot, he’s been tearing it up on the indies for so long, in Japan and the UK, and I’ve followed along, I’ve seen bits and pieces, and I’m excited to see what he’s gonna do in IMPACT Wrestling.
“With the roster that we have, the matchups, forget about it, the matches are unreal that we could have. So I’m looking forward to stepping in the ring with him, but I’m also looking forward to seeing what he is truly capable of, and excited to see how the fans take to Mike Bailey and what he’s capable of doing, because I think he brings something totally different to IMPACT Wrestling right now.”
