Johnny Impact Says He Could Tell Brian Cage Was Hurt During Their Rebellion Match

Impact Wrestling's Johnny Impact spoke to Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio. You can see the full interview at this link, and check out highlights below.

Life as the former Impact Wrestling champion:
"Yes I am. Ouch. It still stings to hear "former" Impact champion."

On the Rebellion pay per view as a whole:
"A lot of positives. Everyone that watched it thought it was a great event with the exception of one thing. That is that meat-head Brian Cage walked out with my title. That doesn't sit too well with Johnny Impact!"

If he knew Brian Cage was injured after the Spanish Fly spot:
"I was pretty aware. I guess you can't take the championship from Johnny Impact without leaving something. So, Brian lost the use of his back, spinal fluid, and the realignment of his vertebrates. I was surprised. I didn't expect that. But, I guess machines do break. That is part of what a machine is, what a human is, what a wrestler is.... Nobody is above injury. In the moment, it was shocking for me. In the moment, I started thinking how I could change my strategy. I tried a couple of things. It ended up going not exactly how I thought it was going to go. "
