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.”
