Petey Williams Discusses Impact Wrestling's New Strategy And His Future

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

Impact's new strategy:
"I think it is on the upswing. If you look at this past weekend with Impact versus Lucha Underground, it is like we're working with other promotions now rather than trying to fight them. It is like the wrestling community is coming together and everyone wins. It isn't like the Monday Night Wars where you were either watching Nitro or RAW and that's it! There's so much content out there so that fans can watch everything if they want to watch it. Our TV schedule is going to be changing soon so that instead of taping 3 months worth of shows in a week, we'll be filming a month's worth of shows in 2 days. We're going to be traveling more. It is growing! And, I'm really excited for it!"

As for his wrestling future:
"As for me, who knows? I didn't think I'd be back this long! I came back in August and I thought I would stick around until, oh, November? It is fun! And, when it stops being fun, then I'll go. The first time around, I wasn't stopping and soaking it in. Now I am and I'm enjoying being in the moment. Before I was wrestling as a competitor trying to work my way up, now I'm almost wrestling as a fan!"


His own podcast:
"If anyone wants to listen to me, you can listen to my podcast at and it is called the Wrestling Perspective. Myself and Dennis Farrell who did the ESPN Fantasy Football podcast... We do it. We're not really interview happy but we shoot the breeze about wrestling. It is a little bit different so check it out and let us know what you think about it!"
