Johnny Impact Says Prince Puma Going to WWE Is Something He Had to Do for Himself

Posted By James Walsh on 02/11/18


Johnny Impact spoke with WSVN-TV for a new interview discussing Ricochetís WWE signing and more. Video and highlights are below:

On Ricochet debuting in WWE: ďItís bittersweet to see him go. I wrestled Puma/Ricochet/Trevor all over the world by all these different names. Heís one of the best in the business right now and Iím really excited to see what happens for him at WWE and see him on NXT. Itís sad to see him go but when he was a kid he grew up watching WWF and I think itís something he had to do for himself. He had to get there and see what it was like for himself. I think heís going to kick ass thereÖ Everyoneís going to miss Puma. I actually teared up on that last episode when he walked away. It was emotional man.Ē

On who heíd like to work with now in WWE: ďThereís a lot of cool matchups that are waiting for me in the WWE. Iíd love to teach Roman Reigns how to work. Just kidding. Seth Rollins. Unfinished business with The Miz. Itíd be fun to get back in there and maybe do some Dirt Sheet episodes with him. Me, Miz, Ziggler and Zack Ryder would have a hell of a faction I think. Iíve never really had a long program with Cena. Thatíd be a fun one. I have a feeling that Daniel Bryan will be back when he gets cleared.Ē

On the Mizís success in WWE: ďIím not surprised. The Miz is someone who people are usually like ĎI canít believe how well heís doing. I canít believe this, I canít believe that.í But to me heís someone who really always defined what it takes to becomes a successful public persona and in-ring entertainer and to me thatís being authentic. The Miz is always emphatically himself. Heís always The Miz. Heís in my wedding party.Ē

On his regrets about wrestling under so many different names: ďI donít own any of these names. I donít own Johnny World, Johnny Mundo, John Morrison, Johnny Nitro, Johnny Blaze or Johnny Impact. None of it. If I had my career to do over again, I think I would wrestle under my real name John Hennigan because if there was some sort of brand test associated with professional wrestling I would hardcore fail that test because I have so many names itís confusing to me even. I donít know how to introduce myself to people on the phone depending on who Iím talking to.Ē

On his heat with Vampiro: ďHeís always going to be a turd cutter. Are you kidding me? I believe heís going to be back for Season 4. Him and I and Kevin Cross, Fantasma, Tejano and Dr. Wagner have some unfinished shenanigans in AAA. Pretty much if you ask the entire wrestling world they will agree with the turd cutter assessment as far as Vampiro goes.Ē
