Being a professional wrestler can often lead to a disconnect between your work and being a fan. However, every once in a while you see something that brings the fan back out of you. For Doc Gallows, it has been Eric Young.
Both Gallows and Young were released by WWE earlier this year and made their way to Impact Wrestling this Summer. In a recent interview with Wrestle Zone, Gallows talked about Young’s work since returning to Impact. Here is the quote:
“I’ve really just enjoyed Eric Young and seeing him unleashed again because it’s almost like you know how great he is and he was a friend of mine for a long time, but you almost forgot during the time in WWE how complete that guy is as a professional wrestler. He can do it all. I watched him do some stuff on the tapings coming up that, man, it just brings the fan back out of you and I think that that’s what’s really fun, seeing how top-notch that guy is. I’ve really enjoyed the feud with Rich Swann and the way that that has played out. I think they’ve done some great stuff with that and it’s been really cool.”
Eric Young captured the Impact World Championship on the September 1 edition of Impact. He has since lost the title to Rich Swann.
Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson have also seen success since appearing on Impact. At Turning Point, they defeated The North to become the Impact World Tag Team Champions.
