Willie Mack explains his departure from IMPACT Wrestling.

"Well, first and foremost, it was a money thing, because they promised one thing and I said, 'You know what? I'm not accepting that,'" Mack said. "So I went back to where I started, on the independents, even though it's a tough grind, but I'm least I'm having fun and getting to travel and meeting people that I haven't seen in years. It's good to be able to do your own thing. I can pick up the phone and say, 'I can be there Monday night,' [or] 'I can't do that, I'm already booked here,' and stuff like that. It feels great."

Furthermore, Willie Mack says he is just trying to be seen in as many promotions as possible, hearkening back to several years ago in his career when he was working for multiple promotions with television exposure simultaneously.

"Short-term, I just want to try to get as many places as I can. Because I remember at one point, I was on IMPACT television, Ring of Honor, and NWA TV all at the same time. Somebody literally turned on the TV and saw me, every week, on all three. I want to try to do that again."
