On July 7th, 2019, although he was still under contract with WWE, Rhino returned to Impact Wrestling during Slammiversary XVII wearing a mask. He is a two time world champion, having 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. So far, Rhino's first match announced on the independent circuit is on July 26, for Sami Callihan's promotion The Wrestling Revolver.
In the match he will team with Tommy Dreamer, Eddie Edwards and Jimmy Jacobs against Ohio Versus Everything (Sami Callihan, Jake Crist, Dave Crist and Madman Fulton) in an Extreme Rules Tornado tag match. On the latest Talk is Jericho, he reflected on Impact Wrestling doing a good job of pushing and building talent: “Exactly.
And that’s one of the reasons why it was a very good move for me. You know, I can fit in. And then get me cooking a little bit, help me work with guys from Moose to Elgin. Aiden Prince. These guys are great" - he said.
