Join Joey Karni as he gets The Angle with IMPACT Wrestling Superstar, Rohit Raju!

Rohit Raju is something to watch! Here are the most notable quotes from the show.

On IMPACT working with AEW, calls out Tony Khan:

“I think it’s really cool. As a kid I remember wanting to see something like that for the longest time. I am getting tired of Tony Khan showing up with these paid advertisements. I can cut a promo and obliterate their entire roster with a microphone. I hope something deeper happens where it is a crossover. Seeing Kenny (Omega) in our ring was fantastic. Then seeing The Good Brothers other there, it’s great man. It really bothers me when fans don’t get it or they don’t like it or they don’t realize how awesome it is to be a professional wrestling fan right now. I dreamed of something like this happening. You should be head over heels and wanting more of it. I’ll never understand the hate and negativity surrounding companies like that.”


On what he wants next in IMPACT Wrestling and calling out a challenge:

“Honestly though, if a title run or feud or shot isn’t in my future at the moment, when he’s all said and done Violent By Design, I would really like to rekindle my feud that I’ve had for years with him on the indies an IMPACT Wrestling and I’m going to call out Jake Something right now. When he’s all said and done with what he’s got going on, he can come an find his boy and we can tear it up at IMPACT.”


On what he’d do if involved with AEW/IMPACT situation:

“I would love to. I’d love to go lock horns with Sonny Kiss. I’ve put me vs. Sting into the universe a million times. I want to be in the ring with Sting he was one of my favorite wrestlers as a kid. I think when people talk about greats they don’t mention his name enough. I’d love to go on the microphone against a Jericho or MJF. Private Party and me and Shera, locking horns with those guys. The possibilities are endless”


On being a different X-Division Superstar:

“I’m not a stereotypical X-Division guy, where it’s a lot of fireworks, fireworks, fireworks, and this. No I’m a big fan of character work, slowing things down, and a lot of in between things. I want to be the direct opposite of everybody else. So if everyone is doing 1o Canadian Destroyers, I don’t want to do any.”


On Shera’s return and possibly aiming at the Tag Team Championship:

“I think Shera is a lot better now than he was when we first got together. We know each other a lot better as well. He’s at. OVW every Tuesday in the ring he’s been training. As long as we can start to gel, I do think the tag team belts are in our future.”
