Eli Drake discusses possibly signing with WWE at some point

Eli Drake

IMPACT Wrestling star Eli Drake was recently interviewed by Wrestling Inc. to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Drake talked about recently signing a contract extension with IMPACT Wrestling and if he'd ever consider returning to WWE. Here are the highlights:

Extending his contract with IMPACT:

“It’s amazing. I had options, obviously, to do other things, but I like my lifestyle right now,” Drake said. "I like the idea of not being stuck in a warehouse five days a week. That’s not a shot at anybody, that’s a fact of life, if you will. I just like my lifestyle living in L.A. I didn��t want to move to any other state, I didn’t want to go anywhere else.

“And I like the freedom that I have to do what I do, be what I am and make the money that I’m making. So everything is pretty good in my book and in my world, so it’s A-OK to stay with Impact.”

If he'd consider a WWE return:

“I don’t know, and the reason I don’t know is I’ve had a strange crossroads with this business over the last couple of years,” Drake said. “It’s changed a lot, it doesn’t feel like the same business I fell in love with 20-30 years ago. But that’s not to say that I can’t still do my own thing my own way, that’s exactly what I’ve always done and that’s what I’ll continue to do.

“But wrestling has changed in a lot of ways and not for the better, in my opinion – but again, if I could continue doing my thing then who knows? We’ll see what happens, and if I feel like I want to continue doing that at a much more exaggerated pace, as far as the schedule and what not.”
