Laredo Kid explains why he opted to sign a deal with IMPACT.
Dating back to 2017, Laredo Kid has competed for IMPACT Wrestling as a part of the company’s working relationship with AAA. He returned to IMPACT during the summer of 2021 and has been a regular on their programming since his return.
While speaking to Darren Paltrowitz, Laredo stated that he is signed to IMPACT and one of his goals is to become X Division Champion.
Yes, my goal is to try [to] fight for that belt [X Division Title] because [when] I started in the wrestling business, I saw all the wrestlers that go for the X Division like AJ Styles and all [those] wrestlers. I think they motivated me to be a good wrestler, you know? Like training hard. When I see all the crazy moves they do, I try to do the same, you know? And training more [to] be there one day and when I had the opportunity to be — to sign with IMPACT, it’s great, you know? Right now, it’s a dream to have this opportunity then I’m going to find the X Division belt.
Laredo Kid continued to make the media rounds and also confirmed to Lucha Libre Online that he did sign a deal with IMPACT.
He was a part of IMPACT’s late January TV taping in Florida where he competed against Blake Christian and was a part of a three-way involving Ace Austin and Chris Bey.
