Monty Brown Was Considered For IMPACT Wrestling Return In 2020

Monty Brown could have come back to IMPACT Wrestling

Beyond one match in 2014, Monty Brown has been retired from professional wrestling since his WWE ECW run as Marcus Cor Von came to an end in 2007. 

Brown rose to prominence during his time in TNA Wrestling, becoming a favourite with fans despite being a heel as he took great pleasure in hitting his opponents with the Pounce. The now 53-year-old remains one of the biggest "What if?" wrestlers in history as TNA never pulled the trigger and booked him to become NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion before his departure for WWE.

Although he hasn't wrestled for IMPACT (FKA TNA) since 2006, Brown almost had the opportunity to return in 2020 as the promotion talked about bringing The Alpha Male back for a match with Moose at their WrestleCon event over WrestleMania 36 weekend. 

"That's a match I always wanted but... So there was talks. I forgot what show. Before COVID happened, we were supposed to be doing a WrestleMania show like how every company does a show during WrestleMania weekend. It was in Tampa and the talks was it was supposed to be me versus Monty Brown. But, COVID happened and shut the whole thing down so..." Moose revealed during a virtual signing for Golden Ring Collectibles.

The event, 'TNA: There's No Place Like Home', would have been a throwback show to celebrate TNA and would have featured the likes of Scott Steiner, Chris Harris, Petey Williams, Ken Anderson, Chris Sabin, and Amazing Red. Any plans for the show ended up being scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
