Abyss has been with Impact Wrestling for quite a long time, and is important to the brands momentum, both as a superstar and as a member of their creative team.
Abyss spoke to WrestleZone Radio about the turnaround that Impact has seen recently, and how he credits Scott D’Amore, Sonjay Dutt and Don Callis for the recent surge.
“I’ll credit Scott D’Amore, Sonjay Dutt, and Don Callis. They have really hunkered down, and you can see it in the production, you can see it in our commitment to moving the show around, and you can see it in the talent.
“Those guys really, really, really hunkered down and I think that our roster right now is as strong as any roster in the world. Guys like Pentagon, Fenix, Sami Callihan, Austin Aries, Moose and Eddie Edwards.
“I think our roster has really started to take shape in 2018 and I think it’s really starting to come together as a top notch roster. The women as well, with Tessa, Su Yung and Allie. We’ve got them in good places.”

Doug Williams Announces Retirement
Doug Williams, the legendary British wrestler who has had a brilliant 25-year career, lost a career ending match to Trent Seven for the Atlas Championship at Progress’ Hello Wembley show on Sunday.
“It was more their decision than mine,” Williams said, during an interview with SportBible last week.
“They approached me with doing a different kind of storyline, which was a disgruntled veteran that was bitter about the new guys taking over. But I switched it on them and said I’m thinking about retiring next year anyway, why don’t we do a storyline that could culminate in that possibly happening?”
It’s late, I’m tired, I’m sore. It’s been a hell of a night. Tomorrow I will post my feelings and thoughts on what might happen now. But for tonight THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!
