Check out the highlights or listen to the full interview below.
Willie Mack on getting his first singles title run in Impact Wrestling so quickly:
“Well, feels great. I didn’t think I’d get a singles title opportunity this close. But it happened, I took it and it feels great to be at the top of the X-Division … I was cool with or without it. But like, once you get it, that’s something that can’t really be erased from history. Now that I’ve got it, I’m part of that elite group like AJ [Styles], Chris Daniels, Samoa Joe, Bobby Lashley, Eddie Edwards. All them folks that had it before me. And now, people’ll be like ‘Wow, Willie Mack was a part of that.”
Willie Mack on who he’s looking forward to defending the title against:
“Oh probably me and a bunch of people on the roster. But right now, I’m thinking — I think I could tear it up with Eddie Edwards.”
Willie Mack on a possible match with Tessa Blanchard:
“Hmm. If it comes to it, I’ll be down. But I ain’t really in no rush, because I’m the X-Division Champion right now. And I’m like, I like that feeling. And I don’t want to risk it.”
