Santino Marella might stay though Impact Wrestling has recently been named the new Director of Authority A Hard to killThat doesn’t mean his relationship with WWE has soured.
“I have a great relationship with WWE and we chat sometimes,” Marella said “The Drew Van Auken Show.” “The thing is, I’m Canadian, so to bring me in for one day, they have to get a work visa. So it’s like, ‘Man, are we going to spend $5,000 to bring him in for a day?’ “
Marella expressed her desire to do something in the company with her daughter “WWE NXT” stars Ariana Grace, when he moved to either “WWE Raw” or “WWE SmackDown”. But he said he would not return to being a full-time performer for the company.
“My life is perfectly balanced now,” Marella said. “I wouldn’t gamble, man. I can’t gamble it. To go on the road 50 weeks a year, even if it’s just for one day. If I had what I call a Booker T schedule where you fly in and do commentary, then fly home. , it’s still every week. You’re still flying every Sunday, working every Monday and going home every Tuesday. I really like this schedule.”
“The Milan Miracle” spent a little over a decade in the company and was a two-time Intercontinental Champion, one-time United States Champion and one-time Tag Team Champion with Wladimir Kozlov.
