Dezmond Xavier on IMPACT's "revitalised" roster, Sami Callihan, Mahabali Shera & more (Exclusive)
Right now, IMPACT Wrestling may be the single most underrated wrestling promotion in the world. Their product is arguably better than ever - as is their roster in equal measure.
With an AXS TV deal announced, as well as new deals in both the UK and Africa, there's never been a more exciting time to be a fan of IMPACT - or indeed a performer working with the brand and, on the most recent episode of Dropkick DiSKussions, Dezmond Xavier told me why.
With IMPACT Wrestling announcing several new television deals recently, the likes of AXS in the US and Fight Network in the UK, how exciting is it to be a part of IMPACT Wrestling right now?
It's absolutely amazing. Not just the fact that we're on the new channels but the way the roster has been revitalized with the new energy. Everybody is excited to be at work and excited to see what everybody is capable of in the ring, and it's an environment that's breeding creativity and healthy competition, and it's extremely fun.
Along with the direction of our management, giving us the freedom that we do have to really exhibit our athletic abilities along with creativity, it's very special right now to be part of IMPACT.
I recently spoke with TJP who told me he thinks IMPACT is making tag team wrestling relevant again. It's a big claim, but not one I can argue with! Do you have anything to add to that?
I completely agree. The tag team division of IMPACT is absolutely insane. I and Zachary, including along with Trey thrown into the mix because you never know exactly which Rascal you're going to get.
The North is dominating right now. The Desi Hit Squad is gaining a whole lot of traction and The Deaners are definitely someone we have to keep an eye out for now. Reno Scum has been eyeing a lot of people out as well so the whole tag team division is absolutely amazing and we're looking to scratch and claw our way to the top.
