The following is a video preview for this week's edition of Impact Wrestling. In related Impact news, tickets for the New York City Impact tapings at the Manhattan Center go on-sale this Friday:
As we previously noted, Short Sleeve Sampson had a lot of heat backstage for posting a photo prior to Extreme Rules revealing John Cena and The Wyatts going over their PPV match. Sampson has since posted the following apology on Facebook regarding the photo:
"They say a picture is worth a thousand words but in my case it has become the center of alot of controversy. I want to publicly apologize to the WWE, the workers in this business who give their blood, sweat, and tears, and to all the fans that continue to support it!
After my segment was over on Extreme Rules I did post a few pictures on my facebook of my experience from working with WWE for that day. I did not realize that in one of my posted pics I was "exposing the business" until someone commented on it and I immediately took it down!
I love this business and I feel honored to be a part of it! I would never intentionally try to do anything to compromise it or break "Kayfabe". I do want to thank all those responsible for keeping this story going and for being the ones who are truly "exposing the business".
Again, I am very sorry for this mistake on my part!
I want to thank my family, the promoters, workers, and fans who have and continue to support me!
I am currently at the half way point of my "Midget Time Farewell Tour" I wanted it to be memorable but I never imagined anything I would do would become this talked about!"
