Steve Maclin: IMPACT Wrestling Offered Contract As Soon As 90-Day WWE Non-Complete Clause Ended

The former Steve Cutler was a wanted man

As seen on the June 3 edition of IMPACT Wrestling, a vignette aired for a new signing - Steve Maclin. The short video showed the wrestler formerly known as Forgotten Sons' Steve Cutler in WWE drinking whiskey as swing music played.

Since then, Maclin was a guest on IMPACT producer Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore podcast, explaining how his IMPACT deal came about:

"D'Lo [Brown] kept in contact with me and was like 'when is your [90 days up]?' It was May 5,” said Maclin “He called me on May 4 and was like, 'We want to offer you a contract.' Technically, I didn't sign it until after [the 90 days expired]. It was a great process and I even got an email from D'Lo to say, 'Welcome home.' It was a refreshing feeling and it felt more accepting.

“I was always treated well, but [WWE] is so corporate and you're in a pecking order. All I wanted to do is work. This past taping, I was putting more pressure on myself because I was thinking I was doing too much or doing too little. I want to do my best no matter what. Even working some indies was cool because I haven't worked in front of a crowd in two years so I was choked up and fired up all at the same time, and I was supposed to be a heel.”
