Petey Williams Addresses Wrestlers Asking For Their Impact Release

Impact Wrestling's Petey Williams was interviewed by Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio. You can see the full podcast above, and highlights below:

Recent changes to Impact Wrestling:
"I think they've been changing for the better. I mean, a lot of people have asked for their release and stuff like that but But, that's ok! If I were a business owner and someone said to me, "Hey, I don't want to work here anymore." I wouldn't be like, "No, you're locked into a contract with me. You might be miserable here but we're gonna suck the money out of ya!" No! Come on! If you don't want to work for my company, if this were my company, then don't be here! We want people working for us that want to be here. I think that is what boosts morale. I think it (Impact Wrestling) is changing for the better!"

Don Callis entering a management role with Scott D'Amore:
"As for Don Callis, I first met Don when I first started like 18 years ago. I had never actually worked under him until now. I remember I cut a promo at the recent tapings, and Impact is really good with promos. They say, "You've got a minute and a half. Go!" I did my promo and Don was like, "Hey, you started out at a 9 and brought it up to a 10. Why don't you start at like a 2 and bring it all the way up?" I was like, "All right." I did it in the second take and he was like, "That was great! That was golden!" I didn't think that it was good. But then others saw it and they thought it was good. So, Don is there to make the product better. Don Calli s has been everywhere and he's been everywhere twice! I think it is all changing for the better and we're on an upswing."

His Title Match with Eli Drake:
"It was great! All the stars lined up that night. We were in Ottawa so we were in my home country. I challenged the night after Bound for Glory. It was the Canadian Hero, if you want to call me that, against the loud mouthed heel. I have never had that opportunity before, to challenge one on one for the World Title. I really, really enjoyed the match. Eli Drake was phenomenal to work with. He's a true professional. He's got this cool factor about him that a lot of people don't have in wrestling right now. He's a stud. He's a cool guy."
