Former IMPACT Wrestling star Slash aka Wolfie D, commented on his recent appearance in the company.

Slash appeared at the Slammiversary pay-per-view in June earlier this year, alongside father James Mitchell. He was one of the participants in the Reverse Battle Royal, which also featured stars like Steve Maclin, Chris Bey, and many more.

Speaking to Dr. Chris Featherstone on the latest episode of Sportskeeda Wrestling's UnSKripted, Slash spoke about his appearance on the show and stated that he was surprised that he was the only wrestler to get an introduction prior to the match.

"Yeah, they called me up and said, 'Would you come on here and do this?' I was like f**k yeah, man! I was a [TNA] Original and I had about 4000 partners. Brian Lee was my favorite partner and the one that we did everything with. It was so good man, for them to bring me in there and, like, two seconds before we went out there, they said, 'Nobody is getting an intro except for [James] Mitchell and Wolfie. I was like, 'What?! That's so cool!' Yes, it was on the pre-show but just to have that little thing [...] that was awesome," Slash said. [From 06:00 - 07:10]

He also stated that former ECW World Champion Tommy Dreamer and D'Lo Brown played a key role in making it happen.

"And it was also [Tommy] Dreamer, D'Lo [Brown], they are the ones that called me on the whole thing." [From 07:57 to 08:08]
