Even after over three decades in the wrestling business, Tommy Dreamer is still giving back both inside and outside of the ring.
He's obviously experienced success everywhere he's gone from ECW to WWE, but for the past decade, he's played a pivotal role in the resurgence of IMPACT Wrestling, specifically behind the scenes. However, he does continue to compete on occasion - including this past Saturday's Victory Road event on Impact Plus, when he put the boots back on to battle Brian Myers.
Outside of IMPACT, Dreamer has been virtually everywhere in wrestling in recent years. He's returned to Raw and reunited with The Dudley Boyz, had various runs in Ring Of Honor, made a one-off appearance in Lucha Underground a few years ago, and even appeared at AEW's premiere pay-per-view Double or Nothing 2019 in the Casino Battle Royal.
That's all in addition to running his own promotion, House of Hardcore, as well as creating podcasts and serving as an analyst on Busted Open Radio.
Ahead of his war with Myers at IMPACT Victory Road, Dreamer took the time to talk to WhatCulture about the bout, IMPACT's recent rise, the pros and cons of social media in wrestling, incredible interactions he's had with fans, and more.
