It was announced recently by Scott D'Amore at a Destiny Wrestling show that "Speedball" Mike Bailey has signed with IMPACT.

For those who may not be aware, Bailey is a prominent figure in the Canadian wrestling scene and was also in talks to join WWE earlier this year. Due to a travel ban to the US, these talks didn't bear fruit, which is lucky for IMPACT.

Following this announcement, current IMPACT star and recent Impact World Championship winner (and then just as quickly...loser..) Josh Alexander took to twitter to comment on this development, saying: 

"This will be the steal of a signing people talk about in 5yrs. @IMPACTWRESTLING gets another killer. @SpeedballBailey is going to take over the wrestling scene! One of my toughest opponents, most skilled & hardest workers I’ve ever seen. @DestinyWrestle is Canadian wrestling"

After the kind words from Josh Alexander, Bailey himself took to twitter, stating:

"Thank you.  Despite setbacks and hardships I've had in my wrestling career, I only feel blessed & grateful for the love & support that I have received continuously in return for my hard work. I couldn't do any of it without you all. Thank you. I'll keep doing my best!"
