Johnny Swinger Says He Has Signed An Extension With IMPACT

on

During a recent interview on Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore podcast, Johnny Swinger revealed that he has signed an extension with IMPACT Wrestling for at least another year, a decision he is extremely happy about. Swinger also discusses his work for the promotion since he initially joined back in 2019. Highlights from the interview are below.

Confirms that he’s signed with IMPACT for another year:

“Yeah, another year in the sun, right. Can’t go wrong with that.”

On his first conversation with Scott D’Amore about joining IMPACT back in 2019:

“Brother, I’m telling you, man, he said to me, he called me on Fourth of July in 2019. He sent me a text and said, ‘I got an idea for you in IMPACT. It’ll be fun and easy.’ My response was, ‘When do I start?’ I didn’t ask what it was. I didn’t care because I knew that he knows what to do with me, so I’ll just trust in that. It was three weeks after that before he told me what I was finally doing. When I talked to him, he goes, ‘We’ll either get three months out of this, or we’ll get three years out of it.’ Obviously he’s still happy with it to offer me another year. I started thinking about all the people I’ve worked with there over the last three years that aren’t around anymore, that were really big-time talents. I just in awe of Ken Shamrock when I first came in because I never really knew him before that, but I got to kind of be friendly with him. Really cool guy, and I was thinking, after a year and a half, he was gone, and I’m still here three years later. That makes me feel good, that I’m a pliable character that you can just cameo into something. Like you have a good idea and boom, it’s just an easy, simple thing and everybody gets it.”

How grateful he feels for being able to perform on television:

“I’m just grateful for the chance to come back on a TV level and do this character, which is not really a character. It’s just what I am and what I’ve seen. I add a lot of color to it.”
