UPDATED: Even More Talents Finished with Impact Wrestling
As we noted last night, according to Squared Circle Sirens, a current Knockout is the latest talent to depart Impact Wrestling, as MJ Jenkins announced she is no longer with the company. Jenkins debuted with Impact back in March of this year, and commented on her release with the Instagram post below.
In a big update to the story, referee Brian Hebner, who is the son of TNA Hall of Famer Earl Hebner, has announced he is finished with Impact Wrestling as well. Referee Robert Moore has also left the company.
Additionally, Marshe Rockett, an X-Division talent who worked during the Billy Corgan regime, has announced he is finished with Impact.
PWInsider.com is also reporting that former TNA Champion James Storm is the next major name to keep an eye on. Storm’s current deal expires in January 2018, however the upcoming Impact tapings in Ottawa will carry the company into next year, so it’s possible with all the cost-cutting happening in Impact that Storm could be working his final dates coming up in Canada.
Following news of the above Impact Wrestling departures, the list of names finished with the company continues to grow. The following is a brief recap of talents who have recently left Impact Wrestling:
-Rockstar Spud was released due to visa issues preventing him from traveling to The United States.
-Taryn Terrell was released as she cannot travel into Canada, making her unavailable for Bound for Glory and the subsequent TV tapings.
-Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling parted ways, and although a specific reason was not given, we did note that Jarrett recently entered a rehab facility.
-Eddie Kingston requested and was granted his release.
-Adam Thornstowe and Luster the Legend, better known as the tag team Reno Scum, left the company shortly after Jeff Jarrett took his leave of absence. Scum came into Impact Wrestling as part of a host of GFW talents brought in by Jeff Jarrett when he returned.
-Robbie E left the company back in September.
-Low Ki left the company back in the summer, citing unhappiness with his position in the X-Division instead of the main event.
