Ryback Discusses The Issues With iMPACT! Wrestling, Bram & Rockstar Spud’s Departures


During the latest edition of his Conversation With the Big Guy podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback discussed the issues with iMPACT! Wrestling, Bram and Rockstar Spud’s iMPACT! departures and more. You can check out some highlights below:

On Bram leaving iMPACT! Wrestling: “Impact Wrestling has been in a weird boat. A lot of their talent there have parted ways with them, and I’m not sure if it is a good thing or bad thing, but he was a talent that they used pretty consistently at one point and I think it was a mutual parting, and don’t think there were any hard feelings or anything like that.”

On Rockstar Spud reportedly going to WWE: “He’s a smaller-sized guy. I actually met him in Nashville a few weeks ago; he is a very nice guy. I think the reports are for 205 Live, and I think he would be a nice addition as far as personality standpoints if the story is true.”

On the exodus of iMPACT! Wrestling talent: “They have lost a lot of talent over the past year. It’s not the same when they were TNA. At one point they were at a level where they could have been considered the #2 company; they’re not the #2 company anymore. I don’t even know who #2 is. Anthem has a lot of money, but their personnel doesn’t know how to run a Pro Wrestling company. That is not to say that people involved aren’t trying their best, but I don’t know. It just kind of seems—based on everything I’ve seen; they are trying their best. They bring people in, but they’re not on a major network. They need things to turn around for them, and I really hope that they do.”
