Disco Inferno To Be The Special Guest For This Weeks IMPACT Wrestling's Press Pass Podcast
Updated: Nov 20, 2019
The IMPACT Wrestling Press Pass Podcast returns Friday, February 8, with veteran wrestler Glenn Gilbertti as the special guest, starting at 2 p.m. ET.
Gilbertti, known as Disco Inferno during his years in World Championship Wrestling (WCW), was the dubious winner, er, loser last November in the 2nd-annual Eli Drake Gravy Train Turkey Trot, held at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Gilbertti is a Las Vegas resident, and IMPACT Wrestling returns to Sin City for three consecutive nights of TV Tapings of the flagship weekly TV show, Impact!, Feb. 15-17 at Sam’s Town.
Gilbertti, who will be joined by hosts Josh Mathews and Ross Forman, had a six-year run in WCW, claiming the promotion’s Cruiserweight Championship, Television Championship (twice) and the Tag Team Championship.
Gilbertti has worked for IMPACT Wrestling numerous times in the past, dating back to 2002, but no time was more memorable than November 2018 on the Thanksgiving episode when Gilbertti tried to impress Scarlett Bordeaux. He participated in a 5-on-5 mixed tag team match, teaming with Jake Crist, Katarina, Rohit Raju and Eli Drake. They faced the team of Alisha Edwards, Dezmond Xavier, Kikutaro, KM and Fallah Bahh – and Bahh pinned Gilbertti.
Gilbertti ultimately and reluctantly wore the dubious Turkey suit.
