ProWrestling.com caught up with Impact Wrestling star DJZ this weekend during the AAW Jim Lynam Memorial Tournament in Chicago.

The former X-Division champion told us that he’s “pretty close to 100%” after suffering a career-threatening injury that put him on the shelf for the majority of 2017. He wrestled three excellent matches for AAW this past weekend against Andrew Everett, ACH and Michael Elgin, showing no signs of “ring rust” or lingering effects from the injury – at least from where we were sitting!

DJZ is eager to “get back in the game” for Impact Wrestling after being off television since the tapings in March. Although he is not currently booked for November’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view, we’re not ruling out a surprise appearance or participation in the week-long television taping event that follows.

Check out our entire interview with DJZ below for more on his current status, plus his reaction to performing at the Pro Wrestling Tees grand opening, musical influences and more!
