To the surprise of many on Sunday night, DeAngelo Williams made his debut and took people aback when he was able to utilize some pretty competent wrestling skills on the last PPV of the Impact Wrestling era. To add to that surprise was the fact that Williams had only been trained three days prior to the event.
Williams spoke to ESPN after his appearance and said that this match would be his only appearance even though GFW had asked him to appear more and work future dates. He went on to say that he wrestled in honour of his late uncle and that he put forth the effort because he really respects the world of professional wrestling.
Williams also noted that he wanted to set himself apart from most other celebrities in wrestling who merely just go through the motions.
