Moose Explains The Inspiration Behind His IMPACT Character

Moose Nation is no country for old men...

Moose’s rise to the top of IMPACT Wrestling was in part helped by his persona - that of an uncompromising, unemotional, wrecking machine.

This persona was no happy accident though, as Moose revealed to The WrestleSlam Podcast that Don Callis helped him hone who Moose was, with a little help from Anton Chigurh:

“Yeah, I hate to put this guy over because I mean, he’s one of my friends but he’s annoying as f***, Don Callis,” started Moose “And one thing I learned from Don Callis is we actually spoke about [it]. He helped me with this character that you would call it and he told me to watch this movie No Country for Old Men. I don’t know if you’ve seen it and the way that-that guy spoke, it was kind of like, he never really showed emotion, he never really showed anger or pain or… empathy.

"He never showed anything. He just talked in kind of a monotone set and we talked about me trying that and I watched the movie and I loved it and I was like, ‘Man, I see exactly what Don means.’ I forgot the guy’s name that we’re talking about but [Anton Chigurh], yeah. So that character you see with Moose on TV, especially in his promos is a version of that character from No Country for Old Men."
