Eric Young signs exclusive contract with Impact Wrestling

Eric Young has officially signed an exclusive contract with Impact Wrestling.

In an interview with Sportskeeda, Young confirmed the news.

"Yeah, I am on an exclusive contract with IMPACT,” he was quoted as saying. “ I'm very excited about that!"

"I do have a lot of gas left in the tank,” he added. “ It's just a question of how much longer I want to do it."

Young was released by WWE in April as part of wide-ranging cuts due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. He made his return to Impact at Slammiversary, taking part in a five way match for the Impact World title. Once he was eliminated, he immediately took out his frustrations on a returning Rich Swann, attacking his leg.

The angle was continued further on this week’s episode of Impact. Swann announced his retirement due to Young’s attack. As he was being applauded by members of the Impact roster, Young jumped Swann and attacked his leg again.

Young was previously part of Impact Wrestling from 2004 to 2016 before signing with the WWE.
