Speaking on Windy City Slam podcast with Mik Pankow, Dirty Dango confirmed he has signed a one-year deal with IMPACT Wrestling.

"Everything in life and professional wrestling is full circle. I started my career in IMPACT back in 2003 when they were filming at the Nashville Fairgrounds. I've always had a working relationship with them over the years. A lot of my friends wrestle there; Brian Myers, (Matt) Cardona, Tommy Dreamer. I was a free agent at the time, I got a phone call. Myers and myself are really close, we came up in developmental together. Albany is a great crowd. It was kind of a no-brainer," said Dango.

Asked about his goals in IMPACT, Dango replied, "I'm a real big fan of Josh Alexander. Some of the X-Division guys, I'm a huge fan of their work, I just don't know if I can keep up with them. Heath, Myers, guys like that. In the past, I was in more of a comedy shtick wrestling with them. Now, I'm working a little bit more of a serious style. My match with Myers in Albany, it felt good to get out there for 10-15 minutes and give a good wrestling match and not have to do a complete comedy act. I don't have my eyes set on one person, just prove to management that I'm not a comedy act. When the bell rings, I can go."

Dango portrayed a dancer and a detective during his time in WWE. Dirty Dango is set to compete in a No Surrender qualifying bout against Brian Myers on the February 9 episode of IMPACT.
