Scott Armstrong has landed in the IMPACT Zone.
PWInsider reports that Armstrong, a former WWE official, started working with IMPACT Wrestling this past weekend. He officiated the Knockouts World Championship match between Jordynne Grace and Mia Yim at IMPACT Emergence, and he was also active as a producer.
Armstrong has been in the business since 1983, first as a wrestler and later as a referee. He spent a few years with Smoky Mountain Wrestling before he moved to WCW and competed there from 1994-2001. He is also a two-time NWA Junior Heavyweight Champion. He then spent some time in TNA and later signed with WWE in 2006. He became a senior referee in the company; among other highligths, he officiated the WrestleMania 25 main event match between Triple H and Randy Orton.
WWE released Armstrong in 2010 but brought him back in 2011. He refereed the classic bout between CM Punk and John Cena at WWE Money in the Bank 2011. Armstrong then started working as a producer, in addition to his officiating duties. He was furloughed from WWE, like many others, in April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and after he returned in October, he was released on January 5, 2022.
Scott is a member of the Armstrong wrestling family; his father was "Bullet" Bob, and his brothers are "Road Dogg" Brian James and Steve.
