Konnan Says He Was Going To Wait Until 2019 To Make An In-Ring Return So He Could Get In Better Shape

Konnan is back in action.

Tomorrow night at the Major League Wrestling television tapings at the 'Scottish Rite Temple' in Miami, Florida, the 54-year old grizzled veteran Konnan will have his first singles match since August of 2012 and he'll be challenging Low Ki for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship in a No Disqualification match. Konnan is prominently featured in AAA and IMPACT Wrestling where he manages talents and at times gets physical but tomorrow will officially mark the in-ring return of the former CMLL World Heavyweight Champion.

To promote his championship bout against Low Ki, Konnan chatted with Jim Varsallone of the Miami Herald and during their discussion Konnan shared that he was initially planning on waiting until the summer of 2019 to make his return to the ring to get in better shape but nonetheless he is ready to battle Low Ki.

“Well actually I wasn’t gonna do this until next year probably in the summer because I’m not in one-hundred percent [in] the best shape that I could be in but it’s just been a lot of disrespect I feel from Salina de la Renta, Low Ki, and I just want to go in there and shut him more than anything - it’s a respect thing. He thinks it’s an ego thing but it’s a respect thing.” Konnan explained.
