Impact Wrestling’s Moose spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News and recalled how NFL running back DeAngelo Williams became his tag team partner at Sunday’s Slammiversary. “He had called me a while ago asking me if I knew anybody that would want to wrestle,” said Moose (real name Quinn Ojinnaka). “I was like just let me work on it and I’ll see what I can do. DeAngelo happened to be at one of our Impact tapings. I went to Jeff and was like, ‘I think he would be the perfect guy to be my partner for Slammiversary.’ Well, we didn’t even know what was going to happen at that point but I told them he would be the perfect guy that he was asking me about. DeAngelo and I had a conversation and the rest is history.”
Moose also commented on the Impact Wrestling management changes. “I think the biggest thing is just knowing that there’s somebody in the office that actually knows what they’re doing,” he said. “Dixie was a great person but I think her only flaw was that she didn’t know much about wrestling. The product actually showed. But I think it’s great now that we have Jeff who knows about wrestling and was brought up in the wrestling business and he’s leading us.” Read the full interview at SportingNews.com.
