Moose recently spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News to promote the upcoming Slammiversary pay-per-view event on July 2nd in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios. Moose will be teaming up with NFL star DeAngelo Williams to take on Chris Adonis and Eli Drake in a tag team match at the event. During the interview, he was asked about the upcoming match.
“I know DeAngelo is passionate about playing, but he’s going through the process very smartly because he doesn’t want to just play for anybody,” said Moose. “He wants a Super Bowl ring, and I think that’s very smart of him. Hopefully, we get Slammiversary out of the way and then he can continue his search to find that contender.” He added that Williams feels like this is a one-and-done match, but he doesn’t think it’s going to be a one-and-done thing.
When asked about Jeff Jarrett, he said that he loves being part of Impact and that Jarrett is back with the company. He said that Jarrett is their leader and that it’s awesome because Jarrett is the one who started the company and made it great.
“I think we went into a slump when he left it. He’s going to bring us back to where we were when he was there. I think the biggest thing is just knowing that there’s somebody in the office that actually knows what they’re doing,” said Moose. He noted that Dixie Carter was a great person, but he thinks her only flaw was that she didn’t know much about wrestling. He added that the product showed it. “I think it’s great now that we have Jeff who knows about wrestling and was brought up in the wrestling business and he’s leading us.”
Moose also talked about Cody Rhodes and more. You can read the entire interview here.
