Cassie Lee and Jessica McKay, better known as IInspiration, spoke with Denise Salcedo about the creative freedom they’ve gained in their new home.
McKay noted that IMPACT offers them the chance to make their dreams a reality. On the other, she compared their time in WWE to Groundhog Day because it felt so repetitive.
‘”It’s easy, you know, when we were with WWE, it’s very much Groundhog Day — it’s the same thing over and over and over again,” said McKay. “And you can get into this routine and it’s just, everything’s the same. But for Cass and I, we’ve always wanted more. We’ll never be complacent with our lives or where we are. And that’s why IMPACT was the perfect place for us to call our new home because they give us this whole world and we can step into that, and we can do whatever we have dreamed of. And it’s just amazing, and we’re really fortunate to be a part of IMPACT and to have that creativity and that freedom, and also that trust.”
McKay also expressed her gratitude for her friendship with Lee and made it clear that she’s glad they’re on this ride toegther; she also noted that The IInspiration has a bright future from here on out.
“But yeah absolutely. I’ve always known that Cassie is a damn star, and I’m so glad that I’m her best friend. Because we just make each other people, and there’s no one else on this whole entire world that I’d want my life to be with, so it’s just, you know, we’ve got many years ahead of us. Onward and upwards, as we say.”
Lee then shared her belief that she and McKay are better together, as she sees their team reaching new heights on a journey that promises to be much more “fun” than their previous venture as singles competitors.
“There’s some sort of a saying that I can’t exactly remember right now, but it’s something along the lines of, ‘If you want to go far, go together,’” said Lee. “And when I think of Jess and The IInspiration, whatever it is, whatever brand we create now, or in the future or in the past, I just see us together going so much further than we could go alone. And alone is a lonely road ahead, you know. But together we have so much fun.”
The IInspiration retained their titles at IMPACT Wrestling Turning Point, so they continue to reign supreme as the IMPACT Knockouts Tag Team Champions.
