JONAH Confirms Visa Issues Halted IMPACT Bound For Glory 2021 Appearance
JONAH debuted at IMPACT Turning Point instead
JONAH has confirmed he was originally supposed to make his IMPACT Wrestling debut at Bound For Glory 2021, only for visa and immigration issues to change the plans.
JONAH was heavily speculated to turn up at IMPACT's biggest show of the year in October but was no where to be seen, instead debuting at Turning Point a few weeks later.
The former Bronson Reed has confirmed that he had to deal with visa issues before he could legally start working with IMPACT, something that was not resolved by the time Bound For Glory came around.
Talking to Fightful, JONAH said: ""It was all due to immigration and legalities. For me, I understood that Bound For Glory is one of their biggest shows. You had the IInspiration debuting and there is so much happening on that one show that it wasn't at all a detriment for me to debut at Turning Point.
"I think it was actually quite fitting at a show called Turning Point and I attacked Josh and left a complete statement. It was a perfect piece of business."
Speaking further about the visa issues, he added: "" did have the 30-day no-compete, but it literally took another 60 days to have my immigration filed. A lot of people didn't realize that this is what a lot of international people go through.
"Even to get to WWE, it was a long process, months on end just to get to WWE. Being released is the same thing. It's a scary thing, very scary. I had all the faith in the world that wrestling companies were going to want to use JONAH, but at the same time, there are legalities and loops you have to jump through. That's the scary thing."
