The new IMPACT Tag Team Champions discuss their victory. 

At IMPACT Wrestling’s Slammiversary pay-per-view, new IMPACT World Tag Team Champions were crowned as Subculture emerged victorious from a four-way tag match. 

The same week of Slammiversary, Morgan Webster and Andrews captured the RevPro Undisputed British Tag Team Championships. They dove into their week while on Andrews’ My Love Letter to Wrestling podcast. Morgan Webster started the conversation off and shared that he previously felt like he was treading water, but now he feels like he’s finally swimming for the first time in two years. 

Morgan Webster: There was a moment on this trip where me and Mark (Andrews) had kind of a conversation about wrestling. I think it’s the first time I’d maybe really confronted it and actually thought about it and I said to Mark — I don’t want to use the term ‘drowning’. When I spoke to people, I don’t like to use the term ‘drowning’ because I was never drowning. My life’s pretty good and stuff like that but, for the first time in wrestling, it felt like I was treading water and I just felt like maybe I didn’t know how long I could keep treading water. I started being a coach outside of that. I was really enjoying it and I thought maybe I’d progress into doing that. But I don’t know how much longer I can just tread water for but, the last few months or as it becomes its own ‘summer of Subculture’ and I feel I’m actually swimming now for the first time in probably about two years, I actually feel like I’m swimming and I’m swimming with conviction, I’m swimming with purpose and swimming with motivation and yeah, I’m just really excited to see what happens next.

There was a point when Mark Andrews questioned his future and wondered if it was worth it to continue on in wrestling. This recent stretch of his career showed him that good things do come eventually.

Andrews: It’s crazy, you know? We’re talking to all these champions on this episode (of the podcast) and how much it means to people but it really does mean the world to me because, as you (co-host) said earlier, it’s been a hard year, both good and bad year at times. It’s been lots of ups and downs and at times when I really wasn’t sure what the future held for my career and how much longer I was gonna do it or even how much longer it would be worth doing, you know? So the fact that with the last week or so with the success that we’ve (Subculture) had as a team, winning (RevPro) British Championships and now winning the IMPACT World Team Championships, it really does, I don’t know, remind you that good things come along at different times, you know what I mean? It’s not always gonna be good but if you’re gonna persevere long enough, good things will come. So it has been a real lift for me personally and I’m buzzing, you know? Add another championship to the championship cupboard. To the shelves, you know?

On the most recent edition of IMPACT on AXS, Subculture retained their titles over Chris Bey and Ace Austin following interference from The Rascalz (Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel).
