Impact Wrestling's Josh Mathews opens up on the signing of Tenille Dashwood (Exclusive)
Earlier today, Impact Wrestling announced that Tenille Dashwood, formerly known as WWE's Emma, has officially signed with the company and will make her debut in Mexico City, Mexico on August 15th and August 16th.
Dashwood spent the best part of six years in WWE, across the main roster, NXT and FCW, before landing in Ring of Honor - and the signing of the Australian-born wrestler is undoubtedly a huge coup for Impact.
Well, earlier we spoke to Josh Mathews - the voice of Impact Wrestling and a man who wears many hats backstage within the company - regarding the signing of Dashwood, among many other things.
I think it's a great signing for Impact. Tenille brings a huge resume, a great past, she's Australian born but spent some years in WWE, went to Ring of Honor and now she's come to Impact Wrestling and the reaction has been amazing.
She's going to be a big part of Impact. Mexico will be her first show, she'll be in Vegas too. She joins a roster of Knockouts that are absolutely incredible. If you look at everyone on there and what they've accomplished, it's incredible.
We've got the current champion Taya Valkyrie, who's been champion for quite some time, Jordynne Grace, Kiera Hogan is starting to come into her own, in Madison Rayne you've got the resume of a five-time Knockouts Champion, so when you look at the Knockouts and what they've done - Su Yung, Rosemary - and when you look at what they've done, it's just a very well-rounded group of athletes, and Tenille coming in, it's just great!
