During a recent media call in the UK this week, iMPACT! Wrestling executives Ed Nordholm, Scott D’Amore and Don Callis discussed the recent departures, their meetings with promoters and production companies to bring iMPACT! there, and more. Nordholm, D’Amore and Callis all confirmed that Jeremy Borash’s departure will not affect iMPACT!’s plans going foward. iMPACT! Wrestling Superstar Austin Aries will being doing a media call next Thursday to promote that episode of iMPACT! Wrestling.
During a recent interview with The Mirror in the UK, Scott D’Amore commented on the company’s goals in the coming months. D’Amore said:
“We need to gain the trust of wrestling fans all over the world, of wrestlers, of other promotions. There has been so much going on with us, we need to have our own house in order, consistently put on a good product, consistently treat our performers with respect and as the partners they are, and consistently be friendly and co-operative with other promotions. As we do that, the course will be chartered. We’re not saying ‘we’re taking over January 1 and in three months we will be rocking and rolling’. We’re putting together a six-month, 12-month, 18-month and 36-month plan. When you’re building a sports team, you don’t come out of the gate on day one with the team you’ll have a season or two later. We are going to evaluate and make changes, but try to put out a consistent, compelling and entertaining product. We will make some mistakes along the way and when we do, we will evaluate and adjust to them.“
