Following the Impact Wrestling: Homecoming 2019 pay-per-view at the Fairgrounds in Nashville, Tennessee on Sunday night, Ed Nordholm took part in a Q&A with those in attendance at the Impact Wrestling: Homecoming VIP event. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On the possibility of Impact Wrestling working with other promotions, such as All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Ring Of Honor (ROH), New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), among others: “Everything is possible. I think we’d be in the forefront of encouraging collaborations among the bigger and the smaller wrestling promotions. As an organization we’re sure that we would all be stronger if we were collaborating, rather than fighting each other. … It’s a world in which we would welcome an opportunity to work with Ring of Honor. It’s a world in which we would welcome an opportunity working with New Japan. It’s a world in which we welcome working with AEW, if they actually get up and running. We have interest in them, I don’t think we have any bias against any of that happening.”
On working with AAA in the past and how working with other promotions needs to be done right to benefit all involved: “The challenge always is what is the mutual benefit of doing it. We’ve established we have a proven, very strong tradition with AAA, doing what’s mutually beneficial for both of us, and we’re both stronger because of it. It allows us to populate our rosters and be sure they have work. Showing very interesting things that fans haven’t seen until we started doing it. So, with those types of models—I’d be thrilled to work with Ring of Honor, New Japan, and AEW, if they actually get going. We might see other guys who are running major shows who want to work with us in the same way in the future.”
