Eli Drake's questioning of signing Impact in a prior interview:

Triple H Comments On Viral Sexyy Red/Shawn Michaels Video, Noam Dar Talks Ethan Page | Fight Size

"Well, they have a stacked roster. But, when you're playing poker and you have a chance to pick up an Ace of Spades and maybe a wildcard, you do that. You take that opportunity. (laughs) Sure, Eli Drake might be a Jack or a King, but when you're showing your cards, the Ace of Spades always trumps those cards. (laughs) I also think that was before he (Eli Drake) got to know me. He's happy with the situation, I just put words into his mouth. That's one thing Eli doesn't need is more words coming from his mouth. (laughs) I'm really stoked to be part of the Impact roster."


If he still wants the Impact Global Title:

"Nah, I thought I'd fade into the mid card. (laughs) Every wrestler in the locker room wants to be champion. That is what we're here for. Of course I still want to be champion at Impact."


His Impact theme music:

"I take people to Slam Town no matter where I go. I'm really digging my Impact theme. When we were talking about themes, that old school, 80's "Real American", Shawn Michaels, 80's rock is really what I had in mind, man. Johnny Impact is such a fun name, I wanted to have a fun rock vibe on the entrance. It pups me up everytime I hear it. Do you think I should add lyrics to it?"


His relationship with Taya:

"Yes, the Queen will be back in Orlando. I"m excited to head back to Orlando but more excited to be part of another Impact taping. I'm excited for what I've got lined up for 2018 not the least of which is a sweet wedding on June the 1st between the 2 of us." He continues, "Probably the most important thing in my life, ever, is her. I'm really glad we found each other when we did. Man, I'm turning this wrestling interview into a cheesy sentimental thing. But, that's what happens when you have someone like Taya. (laughs)"
