‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey is excited for what’s to come next year, when his contract with Impact Wrestling is up for renewal, after having a very impressive 2023.
On a recent episode of the “Instinct Culture” podcast, Bailey spoke about the talent he’s faced in 2023 and what’s next for his career. He said,
“I got to wrestle this year once again, some of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time, and I don’t say that lightly. I think that pro wrestling right now is the best it’s ever been. I got to be in the BOLA Finals and beat Konosuke Takeshita, who also, much like me, was the greatest wrestler in the world. I said it about him in 2016, I think, and now people are finally starting to believe it. I got to have another match with Will Ospreay. I got to wrestle Alec Price. I got to wrestle Bryan Keith, and he is also someone who hopefully it doesn’t take much longer, and very soon people will be saying he is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. But that match with Will Ospreay really stands out.
“I’ve been in IMPACT for two years now, heading into my third year. We’re TNA, we’re back. Things are changing. This is momentum, I think is the word I can use, that describes it the best. I’m going into my contract year with all the momentum in the world, and I am ready to do big things with IMPACT in 2024.”
Bailey’s match with Ospreay from Bound for Glory 2023 is the highest-rated TNA/Impact match since Samoa Joe Vs. AJ Styles Vs. Christopher Daniels at TNA Unbreakable 2005.
