Report: IMPACT Wrestling Star Joey Ryan Debuts New Gimmick

No more D**K Flips...

Over the weekend, IMPACT Wrestling held their most recent TV tapings in Las Vegas, Nevada. Notable matches included Tessa Blanchard vs. Taya Valkyrie for the IMPACT World Championship, Eddie Edwards vs. Michael Elgin, and Moose vs. Petey Williams.

The most noteworthy moment of the tapings, however, was when Joey Ryan debuted a new gimmick. For years, The King Of Dong Style has toured the Independent circuit, Lucha Underground and IMPACT Wrestling as a babyface inspired by 1980s hunks like Magnum, P.I.

SoCal Uncensored tweeted that Ryan emerged in a turtleneck fleece with tan chino shorts and spectacles. He also carried a notebook filled with important things. He then cut a promo with RVD and Katie Forbes in which he introduced a new #CancelCulture character and told the crowd they will never see the D**k Flip again.

The gimmick is seemingly inspired by the phenomenon of cancel culture but is also a throwback to WWE's Right To Censor. The heel stable were together from mid-2000 to early 2001 as a parody of the conservative advocacy group the Parents Television Council, who protested the level of violence and sexual content on Raw and SmackDown. The group wore tight white shirts with a black tie and walked around with an air of moral righteousness as they took offence at most segments on WWE TV.
