Drew Galloway says Impact Wrestling waited too long to make him an offer.
Sunday, Galloway tweeted a farewell to Impact Wrestling, saying he enjoyed his time with the company. He joined the company in 2015 and held major championships during his time there. Galloway explained his departure from Impact Wrestling to The Scottish Sun, saying the company gave him a nice offer, but it was too late.
“They came to me last week with an offer and it was very very good one, one of the best in the company and a position as top guy but the reality is that because they waited until the last second I had to turn it down.Everything was so last minute. I had to to think about back-up plans and family because it went to the wire. I was surprised I got no heads-up beforehand and when they got in touch last week they wouldn’t accept no for an answer and the financial offer was great so it was a very hard decision to make. If all of this was said three weeks ago I would have signed. They wanted to position me as the top guy in the U.K, across Europe and in the US but it was too little too late. When the news came out I was leaving, the internet response was insane,” said Galloway.
Other wrestlers besides Galloway have left Impact Wrestling lately, arousing questions about WWE signing any free agents. Galloway left WWE in 2014 after being involved with the 3 Man Band, alongside Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal, who are currently on WWE's roster. Galloway did say it was a possibility that he might go back.
"WWE or any of the big companies would be happy to have me back but I need to explore all possibilities," Galloway said. "I've experienced the highest of highs and been in every single position and that has taught me so much. I started wrestling at 15 and signed with world's biggest company by 21 and then had to rebuild myself again. But I'm in a unique position where I'm still young enough to have a long career. Doing things for myself, I can make as much money as I did with WWE as long as I put in the work and travel the globe like I've been doing."
