Eddie Edwards will be one-fourth of the IMPACT Wrestling Slammiversary 2020 main event and he considers this year’s event to be yet another restart for the brand.
Edwards has been a staple of IMPACT Wrestling for many years now and has gone through every division the company has to offer more than once. This year at Slammiversary, he will be in the main event which will be a Fatal 4-Way match to crown a new IMPACT Wrestling World Champion, following the exit of Tessa Blanchard.
Speaking with Sportskeeda, Edwards gives his candid thoughts on the current morale of the locker room and why he feels that it's more important now than ever that the people in the main event of Slammiversary deliver.
“Being that that is the main event of Slammiversary, which is our biggest pay-per-view of the event, and especially this year, it's kind of a rebirth, a restart for IMPACT. There's a lot of moving parts, so I feel that this main event of this pay-per-view, there's a lot of eyes on us for good reason,” said Edwards. “So we have to go out there and deliver. Being the main event of that show, you better go out there and do it because if it's on us to deliver and show the people what we've got and what we can do. I'm looking forward to seeing how it all pans out.”
In regards to the morale of the locker room, Eddie Edwards says that while everybody in the locker room may not be best friends, everybody wants to see IMPACT Wrestling succeed. now comes the fun part
“I've said it before, it is cliche in the world of wrestling and sports, "we're a family" and stuff like that. But along those lines, I feel we are. Are we all best buddies, best friends? No, but everybody is there for IMPACT. Everybody wants IMPACT to succeed, and we do that by supporting each other and trying to help each other,” Eddie continued. “It's never a negative thing, somebody sees something that they didn't think was great or they shouldn't have done, we'll talk to each other. That's how people grow as performers and as people. We're there to support each other, with the good and the bad. I think we're much like a family out there, whether it's cliche or not, but you talked me into it.”
