Johnny Impact recently sat down with Bill Pritchard of WrestleZone.com. During the interview, Impact previewed his upcoming Impact World Title Match against Brian Cage at IMPACT Homecoming. Impact noted that he’s good friends with Brian Cage, complicating their upcoming title match. Cage even recently saved Impact’s wife, Taya Valkyrie, from an attack from Killer Kross.
Brian and I have been friends for a long time. I’ve wrestled against him and with him. I appreciate him doing what he did by saving Taya and sticking up for her. He’s married too, and if I was in a similar situation and able to save Melissa Santos or their kid from being accosted by Killer Kross or hit by a chair by Tessa, I’d do the same.
It makes the Homecoming match a bit more complicated, but as both of us have said, we’re willing to do whatever it takes to leave Nashville as IMPACT World Champion. It’s confusing, but ultimately I think it comes down to this; wrestling is show business, it’s not ‘show friends.’ There’s only one world championship, and if it comes down to me or him, I’m going to pick me.
