Top IMPACT Star Not Concerned With Passing The Torch

Top IMPACT Star Not Concerned With Passing The Torch IMPACT Wrestling

A top IMPACT star is not concerned with passing the torch.

At IMPACT Bound For Glory 2022, Bully Ray made his return to the company and won the Call Your Shot Gauntlet to secure a guaranteed title shot of his choosing.

After weeks of feigning innocence, Bully revealed his true intentions by challenging Josh Alexander for the IMPACT World Title and attacking both Alexander and his wife to turn heel at Against All Odds.

Now, the WWE Hall of Famer will challenge “The Walking Weapon” in a Full Metal Mayhem Match for the top prize in IMPACT Wrestling on Friday, January 13.

Speaking on the Paltrocast with Darren Paltrowitz, Ray was asked if he knew about IMPACT’s relationship with FITE before it was announced and later stated that he’s not in the company to pass the torch. He said:

“I knew that IMPACT and FITE had had a relationship, and I think it’s great because more people get to put more eyes on their product.”

“I honestly think, and I’ve said this on Busted Open, IMPACT Wrestling is the best product out there that people really don’t know about.”

“We give people an opportunity to talk about IMPACT Wrestling on Busted Open, and in the past three to four months, they’ve wanted to talk about it more than ever before. IMPACT is going a great job.”

“Listen, I might have my problems with Scott D’Amore and Tommy Dreamer and Josh Alexander. But the company as a whole I think is doing a fantastic job.”

Praising the talent in the IMPACT Wrestling locker room, Bully said:

“The locker room is what impresses me the most. Very, very aggressive, hard-working locker room of men and women who are going out there and really trying to carve out their spot, find the spotlight, get themselves over, earn themselves opportunities at gold, earn themselves opportunities at more lucrative contracts.”

“I’m not here to pass down a torch. I’m here to grab Josh Alexander’s gold. I’m not a fan of that whole passing down the torch. If you can take the torch, then take the torch. But if you can’t, f*** you.”

The Full Metal Mayhem main event will join the lineup with Jordynne Grace vs. Mickie James for the IMPACT Knockouts World Championship and with Mickie’s career on the line.
