Rhyno explains why he signed with Impact Wrestling

Rhyno is best known for his work in WWE and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). He also has worked for Ring of Honor (ROH), New Japan Pro-Wrestling and House of Hardcore. Rhyno held the ECW World Heavyweight Championship and NWA World Heavyweight Championship once each, and was the final ECW World Heavyweight Champion within the original ECW promotion.

He is also a one-time WCW United States Champion, two-time ECW World Television Champion, three-time WWF Hardcore Champion, and a one-time and inaugural WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champion with Heath Slater. On July 7, 2019, (whilst still under contract with WWE) he returned to TNA, now known as Impact Wrestling at Slammiversary XVII under disguise in all black and a black mask.

At the event, he would surprise attack the villainous Michael Elgin, who at the time was attacking Impact commentator and Executive Vice-President Don Callis. Following his release from WWE, he was then advertised for the August television tapings of Impact.

On the July 26 episode of Impact, Rhino made his first Impact appearance since 2014, attacking Michael Elgin once again. In a recent interview with Sporting News, Rhyno explained why he signed with Impact Wrestling: "It means a lot on several different things.

One, just for the simple fact that it’s a company on the right path for almost two years. They have been moving in a direction where wrestling fans want a company to go in terms of letting the talent be the talent, having bookers booking the matches on the card opposed to writers.

I think a lot of fans are drawn to a promotion like that. Not speaking against other promotions, but you other promotions doing it differently because they’re very successful. But I think there’s nitch where you have to let talent be talent and have enough talent where it’s not drowned out too much and where you don’t have enough TV time and run enough shows to use them."
