Joey Ryan is now a full-time member of the Impact Wrestling roster, having returned to the company at last night's Bound For Glory pay-per-view.
SoCalUncensored.com broke the story shortly after the show had gone off the air. The writeup claims that Ryan has signed a multi-year deal with the Anthem-helmed promotion, having previously worked for the company from 2012 and 2013.
Ryan, who turned down an AEW contract and was the reported subject of heavy WWE interest earlier this year, has since confirmed the news:-
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal for the 'King of Sleaze.'
Joey's Impact comeback saw him compete as the sixth entrant in Bound For Glory's Call Your Shot Gauntlet match, having walked out to a big, big pop from the crowd. A whole bunch of penis-based shenanigans followed, because of course they did, with a long series of d*ck flips culminating with the elimination of Rohit Raju and Cousin Jake. Ryan's run through the bout continued until he was eliminated by Madman Fulton.
Good on the controversial star for signing an advantageous contract that allows him to stay active on the indies and presumably keep working on his Bar Wrestling promotion.
WhatCulture's big bad wrestling news baron. A fan since 1992, still geeking out for everything from WeeLC to mid '80s Jim Crockett Promotions. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
