Ace Austin signs new deal with Impact!

Ace Austin has just inked a new deal with Impact Wrestling that was confirmed in an interview with Brad Gilmore of Sportskeeda. Austin stated he had unfinished business at the company and highlighted the positive locker room environment. 

This is what he had to say in the interview regarding his new contract: 

“I wish that I could give a very different answer than the initial question, Why did I sign with IMPACT in the first place?’ The answer’s pretty much the same,” said Austin. “It’s just the place to be right now. It’s the best environment backstage that I personally experienced, and I got some experience in all the locker rooms back in 2018. And it’s just the place that has been my home and it’s been such a launching point for me.

“And like I said I feel like there’s some unfinished business. It wasn’t time to leave yet after three years. I accomplished a lot but I didn’t accomplish everything that I said I would, and that’s very important to me.”

Alongside this interview, he also had this to say on Twitter emphasising that Impact is where he wants to be and elaborating on the situation: 

"Once again I found myself in the same position that I was in 2018

All options in front of me, interest from all sides and an opportunity to CHOOSE what I wanted

The choice was just as easy as it was then@IMPACTWRESTLING is where I want to be

My legacy here is unfinished
