Eli Drake was a recent guest on WINCLY. During the interview, Drake talked about his free agent status and the offers he has been receiving. He also spoke on the current locker room morale with IMPACT as well as the early success that AEW is experiencing. Here are the highlights:
On Being A Free Agent:
I just can’t go ahead and give you everything right now. I’ve had plenty of emails and booking requests come in. There are some cool things in the works, but nothing’s been inked yet and nothing’s set in stone. So you never know where I’ll pop up.
I was in town when [Double or Nothing] happened. I wasn’t at the show, but I made the after party and stopped by Starrcast to see a couple of people. I haven’t watched their show in its entirety; I’ve seen little bits. Hopefully they keep the buzz and continue rolling on. Of course, having a big TNT deal is next level because that’s what places like Impact and ROH have been trying to do for two decades.
On Morale With IMPACT:
I really don’t feel like it was that much different. As far as backstage, the morale has always been good. It’s very relaxed backstage. No one’s walking on eggshells and there’s no one stabbing another in the back. It’s always been really good.
I feel like that’s just the new Twitter troll environment that we’ve created. They wish bad upon other people because misery loves company. Those aren’t real wrestling fans because if they were, you wouldn’t want to see a company go away.
I will say, since Anthem came in the actual structure of everything seemed a little more sturdy. Even when we heard those [rumors] again, we thought, ‘Okay, we’re good.
