It’s been a wild year for Full Impact Pro World Heavyweight Champion Caleb Konley.
Not only is he a champion at FIP, but TNA Impact Wrestling announced late last month that he has signed with the company.
But if one man can put a dent in his recent success, it’s Fred Yehi, and he can do it at Full Impact Pro Accelerate on Friday, March 27 at the Gods & Monsters in Orlando.
Konley joined The Roman Show to discuss his upcoming battle with Yehi.
“He won a Battle Royal to get this opportunity,” he said. “Fred has blown up in the past couple of years. He came out of nowhere honestly. I remember seeing him at a show in Georgia saying to myself, ‘Who is this guy wearing this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pajama pants?’ He has done well for himself. Now it’s his opportunity. I look forward to it.”
TNA Impact Wrestling recently made the announcement signing Konley. He is grateful for the opportunity and noted whom he’d like to wrestle in the company.
“A lot of those guys I’ve been fortunate to have wrestled in the independent scene, especially the X-Division guys. There are other guys I haven’t work with like Rockstar Spud who I think are doing well. I’d like to get in the ring with them and Crazzy Steve.”
He also talked about veteran Matt Hardy helping him in Impact Wrestling.
“I’ve known Matt and Jeff Hardy for a while,” he said. “Matt put in a good word thinking I would be a good fit. Al Snow, I spoke to him on the first day. He told me to show that I am a star. Al Snow has been influential for me.”
Listen to Konley talk about signing with TNA Impact Wrestling, his previous jobs before being a full-time wrestler and more.
