Eric Young says he may consider going back to WWE someday, but for a price.
The Impact Wrestling star was recently interviewed by VL Media as he spoke about his time spent with WWE prior to his release from the company in 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since that time, Young made his way back to Impact in an attempt to recapture the magic he had prior during the days of “TNA Wrestling” as one of the originals that helped mold the company into the company we know today.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On if he would return to WWE: “I mean I’m always interested in making money. I don’t think they don’t want me back though. Besides, my price would be too high for them. They wouldn’t be able to afford it. Obviously, there are tons of guys there that I would love to work with. For example, Seth Rollins, with whom I had the chance to work when he was still very young. I worked with him ten or twelve years ago in Iowa for an indie show. There’s a ton of crazy, crazy talented people there. I would jump at the opportunity, but I don’t think they can afford me to be honest.”
On similarities between Violent by Design and SAnitY: “I think they’re very similar. Part of this similarity is that it is inclusive. I’m not dictating in any shape or form. I think a lot of Violent by Design, so, Violent by Design is the name who was thought by me but it is definitely a team effort between Scott D’Amore, Eric Tompkins – the head of productions and Joe Doering because, at the time, Cody (Deaner) wasn’t in it. A very collaborative effort. Obviously, me being the most experienced wrestler and a lot of the time, the decisions come down to me. I’m biased, but most of the time I think I’m right. But obviously, there are similarities. I was also the leader there and I was way more experienced than Alexander Wolfe, (Big) Damo, and Nikki (Cross). But, we did a ton of great business there: Tag Team of the Year, Match of the Year, etc… It was almost full-proof, that’s what I thought. But, sometimes, you get proven wrong.”
