Moose Impact Wrestling Contract Status Update
Impact’s Hard to Kill event earlier this month featured a backstage segment with Don Callis and Moose. During the segment, Callis revealed that Moose is currently under contract with the company for another two years.
Fightful Select reported (via 411Mania.com) that Callis’ reference of Moose having two years remaining is actually just part of a storyline and instead his contract is currently believed to expire this June.
Besides Moose, several other Impact contracts are also currently believed to be expiring during the first half of this year.
Josh Alexander Suffered Minor Foot Injury
A recent episode of The Wrestling’s Cool podcast had Josh Alexander as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Alexander revealing that he has been working with a bruised heel since suffering the injury at Impact’s Hard to Kill event on January 16th.
“Working around injuries is something that, unfortunately, I’ve made a name for myself doing. Even currently, I’m working through a severely bruised heel. It’s just something you have to be accustomed to doing. I know I’m not going to injure myself any further and I know where I can push my limits.”
Following the interview, Alexander provided an update on Twitter regarding the current status of his injury.
Since it's being reported all over. Yes I bruised my heel in the #HardToKill pre-show match.— Josh Alexander (@Walking_Weapon) January 27, 2021
I wasn't injured. I was hurt. Thankfully I'm all healed up now.
It would be tough to find me an athlete in any sport that doesn't compete at less than 100% from time to time.
