Chris Bey shares what made him want to sign with Impact Wrestling after doing WWE extra work

On this week’s “House of Hardcore,” Chris Bey stopped by to talk about what his experience was like working for WWE, as well as his musical career.

Chris Bey was asked what his experience was like working for WWE:

“It was awesome. I did extra with them two or three times before that. I think the time before that, I had made up my mind that what I really wanted at this point in my career was to sign with Impact Wrestling,” he said.

“I knew that after the second time that I did extra work with WWE where I was just like, ‘You know what man? I’ve been in the Impact locker room a couple of times now, and there’s something about that locker room, something about that family, that I want to be a part of right there. I feel like that’s the place for me.’ So I kind of made that decision.”

“So when the 205 Live thing got presented to me, all I could think was, ‘This is all I ever wanted all my life since I was young.’ When I thought about wrestling, I wanted to be a WWE Superstar originally. I didn’t understand how many great platforms of wrestling were out there.”

“In modern day, you know, ECW went away, WWE went away. and Impact was doing great, and then Impact was at a state where people didn’t like it. I didn’t know what was all out there until I actually got in the business and I saw it for myself. So by that point, I realized that there was much more, and WWE wasn’t going to be my be all and end all, but it’s still something that you want to check off your list,” Bey shared.

Chris talking about his musical career:

“I dropped an album last month on 4/20 called ‘Main Character.’ It’s eight songs. It’s an easy listen through, like 22 minutes of listening time. It’s on all streaming platforms whenever you stream on.”

“I’m dropping an acoustic EP this month on May 18th. That’s going to be on all platforms. It’s called ‘Across the Mountain’, three songs, super easy to listen to. It’s some melodies with some guitars and cool vocal stuff. But I want to drop something new every month.”
