Dirty Dango Wants To Pursue A More Serious Style In Impact Wrestling


Dirty Dango recently spoke to the Windy City Slam podcast about his contract with Impact Wrestling, and how he’d like to pursue more serious angles with the promotion.

The real-life Johnny Curtis debuted with Impact at the 2022 Bound For Glory pay-per-view event in Albany, NY, challenging for the Digital Media Championship. Dango confirmed that he’s signed a one-year contract with Impact.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

Choosing to sign with Impact: “Everything in life and professional wrestling is full circle. I started my career in IMPACT back in 2003 when they were filming at the Nashville Fairgrounds. I’ve always had a working relationship with them over the years. A lot of my friends wrestle there; Brian Myers, (Matt) Cardona, Tommy Dreamer. I was a free agent at the time, I got a phone call. Myers and myself are really close, we came up in developmental together. Albany is a great crowd. It was kind of a no-brainer.”

His goals for his Impact run: “I’m a real big fan of Josh Alexander. Some of the X-Division guys, I’m a huge fan of their work, I just don’t know if I can keep up with them. Heath, Myers, guys like that. In the past, I was in more of a comedy shtick wrestling with them. Now, I’m working a little bit more of a serious style. My match with Myers in Albany, it felt good to get out there for 10 to 15 minutes and give a good wrestling match and not have to do a complete comedy act. I don’t have my eyes set on one person, just prove to management that I’m not a comedy act. When the bell rings, I can go.”
