A surprisingly hilarious video has emerged, showing a handful of IMPACT Wrestling roster members performing an iconic track of the ’90s.
It’s long been established that IMPACT Wrestling has one of the closest locker rooms in all of wrestling, but that friendship expands deeper than first realised.
In a video posted by legendary ring announcer David Penzer, a number of IMPACT stars – including former World Champion Rich Swann and former Knockouts World Champion Havok – are shown singing the ‘meme song’, What’s Up by 4 Non Blondes:

Released by the rock band in June 1993, the hit song has been used in pop culture on a handful of occasions, including in 1994 film Lassie. In 2005, the song became an Internet meme when it was paired with footage from He-Man and The Masters of the Universe, using a techno-house remix of the track.
A shortened version of the He-Man version of the song, titled HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA, has since amassed a couple hundred million views on YouTube.
According to David Penzer, a group of IMPACT stars “likes to sing” and regularly get together to blast their favourite tunes. Heath has since posted to social media, showing Rich Swann and Trey Miguel singing together.
As alluded to, IMPACT Wrestling has an extremely close-knit locker room that seemingly grows stronger with each new signing. In an interview with WhatCulture ahead of Slammiversary 2021, Eddie Edwards – who many view as the heart and soul of the Anthem-helmed promotion – spoke of how close the roster truly is:
“Through the times, people have different visions. Obviously, there’s ups and downs in every company, in any genre, it doesn’t matter what you do, there’s ups and downs. But right now, since day one when they came onboard it felt like, “Okay, we’re all on the same page”. From the girls and boys in the back, from production, everything to the front office, everyone wanted to change the perception of IMPACT Wrestling.
For a while, IMPACT was thought about negatively, whether it was warranted or unwarranted, but our job was to put IMPACT Wrestling back on track, and that’s what’s happened. You look at how far this company has grown, how far we’ve come in the last few years. It’s amazing. IMPACT Wrestling, I’d say we’re now a destination for wrestlers. We had times where that might not have been the case, but IMPACT Wrestling’s doing something right. I feel that connection is from the roster to the front office, there’s open communication, everybody knows what’s going on, everyone is on the same page.”
