How close Moose came to signing a contract with WWE

During an interview with, Impact Wrestling star Moose talked about how close he came to signing with WWE…

“A lot of people don’t know this, but I was pretty much about to walk into WWE. I was literally gone. The last talk I had with Scott D’Amore really showed me how much they wanted me. I talked to my wife about it. I was like, ‘You know what? I still have a lot of things I haven’t accomplished at Impact. So leaving to go to WWE right now would not be fair to myself and not fair to Scott, somebody who I’ve really looked up to as a mentor and a big brother.’”

“So I decided to give it one more shot. Impact has done a great job keeping some of the core guys and homebred guys, and hopefully we keep doing the same. I think Scott’s done a phenomenal job with the turnaround with Impact and it’s only going to get better.” (quotes courtesy of
