Johnny Swinger on ECW and Impact Wrestling

Johnny Swinger has made a return to Impact Wrestling. He spent nearly 15 years outside of the promotion. When he wasn’t working for Impact Wrestling, he was working for various indie promotions. He worked for the WWE from 2005 through 2006.

He never reached the top of the promotion. Swinger is without doubt a wrestling veteran. He was an active wrestler during the time ECW was a thing. That is probably one of the reasons why he returned to Impact Wrestling. He spoke to Wrestling Inc.

about it recently. He stated that he finds Impact Wrestling and ECW to be very similar. "Very similar. Paul Heyman and Scott are very similar in a sense that [Scott] knows me, knows the roster and knows how to plug them into certain places like Paul did," stated Swinger.

"The other things is that Paul took a lot of advice from the wrestlers and I see Scott and Don kinda doing the same thing. One man can't oversee everything and you've got to get input from the people are doing it… "Impact reminds me of ECW where everyone is working together.

They don't just want one thing to go good, ECW was indeed the only other wrestling promotion besides the WWE and WCW that had a large fan base. ECW was known for its hardcore matches. Most of the matches were no holds barred and anything could be used as a weapon over there.
