John Hennigan Discusses Impact Wrestling and Lucha Underground

Published

on

John Hennigan is a busy man these days. With roles in movies and television shows, along with his work in both Lucha Underground, as Johnny Mundo, and Impact Wrestling, as Johnny Impact, the former WWE star continues to grind.

As Hennigan will tell you, both promotions are very different, saying that,  “Lucha is hard-hitting, acrobatic, fast-paced. It has this cool world that is uniquely Lucha Underground” he said during an interview with with TV Insider.

“Impact is similar, but it’s a different world. The stuff going on there is the evolution of traditional wrestling product into a cutting-edge, modern, present-day program.”

“I think the best way to make an example of that is I’m returning there at Slammiversaryon July 22,” Hennigan continued. “The match I’m going to have is Rich Swann vs. Taji Ishimori vs. Fenix vs. Johnny Impact. Rich Swann and I both worked for WWE. Taiji works for New Japan and Noah. Fenix is one of the best Luchadores in the world. He has worked for pretty much every company in Mexico.”

The two promotions aren’t just different in in-ring styles, but also with how the backstage is run.

“The office for Lucha Underground and Impact Wrestling are both forward-thinking people that are trying to build something, instead of competing against one another, which traditionally happened in the past” Hennigan said.

“Lucha, Impact and hopefully more companies going forward are working together now, which is awesome to me. As a wrestler, we get to work for both companies. As a wrestling fan, I get to see a bunch of dream matches five years ago you would never get to see.”

Killer Kross Discusses Request for Release from Impact Wrestling

Killer Kross

Killer Kross made headlines recently when he requested his release from Impact Wrestling, and now Kross has discussed the decision to ask for his departure from the company in a brand new interview with the ‘Wrestling Perspective’ podcast.

“I personally really don’t really need much,” Kross said (h/t Pro Wrestling Sheet). “But it’s just different when you have people to take care of, circumstances change in life. You can’t anticipate it. […] Being told to go get another job by your job, that’s f****d up. You’re struggling to make ends meet taking care of people, and the job that you can barely afford to have tells you to go get another job so you can keep that job. It’s like working at a corporation being told to go work at McDonald’s. It’s a weird feeling.”

“[…] I found out how much people are being paid, and I wanted to be paid on the same scale as that,” Kross continued.

“I wasn’t asking for anything that was honestly unreasonable. In all sincerity. And I’m not gonna bullsh*t you guys. I really wasn’t. That’s ok if the company does not agree that I am worth that. I will not take offense to that. That’s ok. It’s not my company. I’m just an employee. And I’m not saying that because I think I’m supposed to say that. But if they really feel that way after one year, if they feel that I’m not worth what I’m asking…professionally, kindfully, please…let me go somewhere else, and I will prove it to everyone that I can draw what I’m asking for.”
