Abyss was interviewed by Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio recently. You can see highlights below and the full interview at this link.
Deciding to re-sign with Impact Wrestling:"It was a pretty easy decision for me. I love the company. I've been a part of it for, gosh, going on 17 years, since the beginning. It was a pretty easy decision for me. I was able to put together a pretty nice package to continue my duties as a wrestler, as an agent, and producer. I'm really excited about being able to stay on board and being able to contribute to the team, getting in the ring, and working with the young talent and getting them to where we want and need them to be."
How regularly he might be competing in the ring going forward:"I think you'll see Abyss at the right time and so forth. Obviously, a large part of my duties will be backstage producing and agenting which I've been doing the past couple of years. But, I'll be in the ring as well both as "The Monster" Abyss and probably, I would assume, as his esteemed brother Joseph Park as well. You'll see a little bit of both - In the ring and a lot backstage as well. I'm really excited about it!"
The success of Slammiversary:"You know, you nailed it on the head. I've been here since the beginning. I've been here for some really good times and for some really not good times. That pay per view last Sunday, Slammiversary, was the most positive thing we've had in a long time. It was so great to see it and to hear it. Even critics that were really hard on us over the years were really excited about Slammiversary. As a company, we don't want to rest on our laurels. We feel like we're on to something. We're really turning the corner and getting the company back on the right track. We want to take that momentum we created from Slammiversary and take that moving forward to October and Bound for Glory as well in New York. There's a lot of positivity going on! You've got to really credit the guys and girls of Impact. They really went out there and tore it down and left it in the ring! It was a great, great night and a platform for us to continue to improve as a company."
On Slammiversary playing by "Extreme Rules":"Yeah, you know, I think it is. I think we're finding our niche as a company and are doing things that other companies won't do. I think that's the feeling and that is what makes us different - As long as we're smart about it and I think we were at Slammiversary. We really presented our unique brand. I think that (hardcore) is something wrestling fans crave still. I think we're giving that to them and I'm really excited about where we're going to go in October."
