Damien Sandow spoke with Rolling Stone about his decision to sign with TNA. Here are the highlights…

On Signing with TNA:

”TNA just seemed like the perfect spot for me. They are a growing company with a proven track record. I really believe that they have their finger on the pulse of what the audience wants, and they will gear their product towards that.”

On Not Planning to Sign so Soon:

“I really was not planning on signing with anybody this soon, I was serious about that. But the way the conversations went with several TNA officials, and the strong feeling of a family atmosphere, really made me want to explore the possibility of getting in the ring sooner than I expected.”

On Creative Freedom:

“I am just looking forward to showcasing myself in a way that I have not been in the past. There is so much talent at TNA that I just can’t name one person that I really want to face over another. It’s just a pleasure for me to have creative freedom and continue to work with talented supportive people.”

TNA iMPACT! Wrestling (Airing On 8/18/16):

* Eli Drake comes out and cuts a promo, saying he’s mad that he didn’t get featured on Impact Wrestling live last week, but Aron Rex had the red carpet rolled out for him. Mahabali Shera comes out and tells him to shut up and fight and mocks him with a ‘dummy, yeah!’

* Eli Drake defeated Mahabali Shera

* Moose defeated Eddie Edwards

* James Storm comes to the ring and calls for referee Brian Hebner, saying somebody screwed up in last week’s title match because he had Lashley pinned. Billy Corgan comes out to try and calm Storm down, noting that the referee’s decision is final. Storm says the fans want a rematch and so does he, so he’d better get one or he’s likely to think there’s a conspiracy against him in the company. Corgan tells him this all breaks down to wins and losses, and Storm lost, so maybe it’s just about Storm not being able to win the big one.

Storm pulls out a hammer and threatens Corgan, then threatens to destroy the ring as security runs out. He cuts a promo about how he’s still here after guys like AJ and Roode left, because he believes in TNA. Storm then attacks a security guard, and tells Corgan he’ll ‘smash his pumpkin’ if they ever cross paths again, and Corgan suspends him indefinitely.
