IMPACT Wrestling Launches New Shoot Interview Series "Outside The Ropes," Debut Episode Available

IMPACT Wrestling has launched a new shoot interview series.

OUTSIDE THE ROPES with IMPACT commentator Tom Hannifan debuted this week, with the first episode featuring a very transparent interview with Trey Miguel.

The following press release was issued this week to promote the new series.


It has always taken a special type of person to want to become a professional wrestler – and it takes a different type altogether to have the determination to become a successful one.

What drives these incredible athletes? Where does their passion come from? Who are they, when they aren’t in the IMPACT Zone?

IMPACT Wrestling’s lead announcer Tom Hannifan will explore these questions and more in his brand new OUTSIDE THE ROPES show on IMPACT Plus.

“What happens in the IMPACT Zone is not always the full story” said Hannifan. “With OUTSIDE THE ROPES, we want to bring you the stories that mean the most to IMPACT wrestlers. No bullshit, no walking the line. This is as real as it gets.”

The first episode features a raw, emotional interview with X-Division sensation Trey Miguel. Trey talks about his very difficult childhood, his adopted mother passing away in February and the mental toll it took. His best friends Dez and Zach in WWE and the offer he got.

Hannifan added: “Knowing this series was going to debut in the lead up to Slammiversary, we knew that Trey Miguel had more than just the X-Division Title to fight for in Nashville.

“Trey is one of pro wrestling’s most exciting young stars. What he has endured in his life – especially in this past year to get to this point – it’s astounding. hope fans will see what really fuels Trey inside and outside of the ropes.’

OUTSIDE THE ROPES will be a regular, on-going series.
