IMPACT Wrestling’s Eli Drake Talks WWE Past, Possibly Joining WWE Again

Published

on

IMPACT Wrestling star Eli Drake recently inked a contract extension with the promotion and he recently took part in an interview with Wrestling Inc to discuss his run in Impact Wrestling, his run with WWE, and the possibility of signing with WWE again in the future.

Drake is happy with his decision to stick with Impact.

“It’s amazing. I had options, obviously, to do other things, but I like my lifestyle right now,” Drake said, according to Wrestling Inc.

“I like the idea of not being stuck in a warehouse five days a week. That’s not a shot at anybody, that’s a fact of life, if you will. I just like my lifestyle living in L.A. I didn’t want to move to any other state, I didn’t want to go anywhere else.

“And I like the freedom that I have to do what I do, be what I am and make the money that I’m making. So everything is pretty good in my book and in my world, so it’s A-OK to stay with Impact.”

In regard to a return to WWE, who released him in 2014, Drake is unsure what the future holds.

“I don’t know, and the reason I don’t know is I’ve had a strange crossroads with this business over the last couple of years,” Drake said.

“It’s changed a lot, it doesn’t feel like the same business I fell in love with 20-30 years ago. But that’s not to say that I can’t still do my own thing my own way, that’s exactly what I’ve always done and that’s what I’ll continue to do.

“But wrestling has changed in a lot of ways and not for the better, in my opinion – but again, if I could continue doing my thing then who knows? We’ll see what happens, and if I feel like I want to continue doing that at a much more exaggerated pace, as far as the schedule and what not.”

Chelsea Green Discusses Potential WWE Return

Chelsea Green

Chelsea Green has been rumored to be making her return to WWE in the near future following her departure from Impact Wrestling, and now she is talking about her potential return to the company.

“I think that I wouldn’t go to AEW, and that’s just a reality for me” Green said, during an interview with WrestleZone’s Bill Pritchard.

“It’s not gonna happen. With WWE, I’m really glad that I left on good terms, although I was sad that I didn’t get to fulfill myself creatively as a wrestler. I still had a great relationship with Triple H. I had a great relationship with Vince, so I am really happy that I’m able to hold my head up high knowing there’s an opportunity for me to possibly go back if they decide it’s the time and the place. But this time would be different because I went into it the first time, and I was just so doe-eyed and niave, and just thought that I deserved to be listened to and deserved to be heard.

Now I realize it’s not always like that. And it’s not always wrestling. It just shows business. Acting is the same way. You’re not going to get everything that you ‘deserve’ or everything that you work for, and all you can do is just go in with a totally open mind and just let things happen. So if I did get the chance to go back, and if someone contacted me, I would absolutely have that conversation.”
