IMPACT Wrestling has started off 2021 strong, most recently making headlines with last month’s Rebellion pay-per-view. IMPACT’s next big televised event will be Under Siege on May 15, 2021, as airing via the IMPACT Plus! network. Meanwhile, IMPACT Wrestling itself — which airs on Tuesday nights at 8:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM CST, as preceded by the Before The Impact program and followed by the IMPACT In 60 program — is regularly the highest-rated show on the AXS TV network.

W. Morrissey is the latest high-profile signing of IMPACT Wrestling, having made his IMPACT debut last month at Rebellion. He will be part of a big match as part of Under Siege, taking on Willie Mack in a well-anticipated battle of the big men. Prior to finding success in wrestling, Morrissey graduated from NYU, where he was a captain of the school’s basketball team in his senior year. The New York native nearly pursued a career in medicine before starting training at Johnny Rodz’s wrestling school.

On May 12, 2021, I had the pleasure of speaking with W. Morrissey via Zoom, as embedded below. Besides Under Siege, we talked about his recovery, what he still hopes to accomplish as a wrestler, life beyond wrestling, whether he is done with New York, his love of the Yankees and Knicks, how he got into such excellent shape, DDPY and plenty more. More on Morrissey is here, here, here and here.
