Joey Ryan appeared on Impact Wrestling’s Bound for Glory tonight (results here) as part of a battle royal that opened the show. He flipped a bunch of dudes with his junk.
It being a battle royal, it could easily have been a one-off appearance for the King of Dong Style. Promotions will often get wrestlers to help fill the field and act as a nice surprise to the fans. We also saw entrants like Swoggle and Smiley Kylie Rae.
It turns out this was a bit more than that for Joey Ryan.
It was reported by SoCalUncensored (the website, not the AEW tag team) that this actually represents an official signing with the promotion. The man himself confirmed it on Twitter.
Ryan recently announced that he chose independent wrestling instead of signing with a big company like AEW or WWE. But this deal with Impact allows him to continue working all those indie dates. The report states this is a multi-year deal.
And as for letting “me be me”... well tonight may not be the only genital based offense we see in Impact Wrestling.
