Exclusive: Moose Says Money & Creative Led Him To Pick IMPACT Over ROH

Moose is finding his footing in IMPACT Wrestling, and has emerged as a main eventer in the company a couple of years after he was a highly sought out free agent. 

While in Las Vegas ahead of Impact Wrestling's November 11-13 television tapings, Fightful.com spoke to Moose, who opened up about his time with IMPACT and looked back on his negotiation period when he left ROH.

"Everything with IMPACT Wrestling is going great. The direction Impact is going. I felt like I needed a change. I was with Ring of Honor for two years and I saw how the company was going and how I was being used. I felt like I could be used better and paid better, so I decided to leave," Moose said. 

Moose's fashion choices of late have made waves in the wrestling world, from him wearing everything from eccentric glasses to a dashiki. According to Moose, he doesn't particularly worry about how things are viewed or taken, he just wants to wear what he enjoys. 

"I don't really pay attention what anybody says. If I like it, I wear it. I don't care what fans have to say. If they like it, laugh at it, chuckle, boo, or talk crap about me, I don't care. If I like it, I wear it," said Moose. "That's what I'm going to keep doing. I have a couple of stylists that I pay a lot of money to help my decision making."

In addition to Las Vegas, IMPACT has been traveling a lot more, from New York City, to Orlando, to Toronto, to Nashville. Moose is pretty specific about what he most anticipates about his trips. 

"I have a lot of Nashville honeys that live in that area. That's what I'm looking forward to," Moose closed.
