IMPACT Wrestling Star TJ Perkins On Gaming, Tattoos, Food & Chasing IMPACT’s Tag Team Championship With Fallah Bahh
IMPACT Wrestling has been in the news a lot lately, especially with its recent Slammiversary pay-per-view revealing some big new signings to the company. Among those big signing announcements from the week of Slammiversary were The Good Brothers (“Machine Gun” Karl Anderson and “The Big LG” Doc Gallows), Brian Myers, EC3, Eric Young and Heath Miller, all of whom prior wrestling champions. Meanwhile, IMPACT itself — which airs on Tuesday nights at 8:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM CST, as followed by the IMPACT in 60 program each week — is regularly the highest-rated show on AXS TV.
One of IMPACT Wrestling’s notable stars is TJ Perkins, who made his IMPACT return in June. While only 35 years of age, TJP made his in-ring debut as a teenager in 1998. He has wrestled all over the world, many times over, working with almost every notable wrestling company over the last 20+ years at some point. Perkins is currently teaming with Fallah Bahh, chasing for the Impact World Tag Team Championship, with hopes of the the two becoming the world’s first-ever Filipino tag team champions.
I had the pleasure of speaking with TJ Perkins by phone earlier this week about his 22 (!) years in wrestling, how things have changed for him one the years as a Filipino-American, gaming, tattoos, dining, career goals and more.
