What's the story?

Former WWE and Impact star, Brodus Clay, who performed for Impact under the name Tyrus, has returned to Impact Wrestling on the latest set of tapings. Tyrus reunited with EC3 to face the team of Matt Sydal & Johnny Impact at the show.

In case you didn't know...

Tyrus joined the then TNA Wrestling in 2014, shortly after he was released from WWE, and parted ways with Impact just last August. Tyrus was used as a bodyguard for his entire first run with Impact, first with EC3, then Matt Hardy, then Eli Drake and Finally Bruce Prichard.

Tyrus announced last August that he had requested and received his release from Impact Wrestling because the company wasn't treating him right.

The heart of the matter

Impact Wrestling are trying a big roster shift at the moment. Several big company stars contracts are coming up and it seems like they will not be re-signing. Austin Aries also made his return to the company during the tapings and Impact has also announced the signing of some independent talent.

Due to several stars possibly leaving, Tyrus may finally get a push this time around.

What's next?

No plans have been set in motion for Tyrus just yet but for the moment he seems to be reuniting with EC3. Impact is currently taping several months worth of shows over the next few days so we should learn more about what the future holds for Tyrus.

Author's take

I hope for Tyrus's sake that his reunion with EC3 is only temporary as it is bookings like this that led to his requested release in the first place. Tyrus is getting older, he turns 45 next month, but for a big man he still has a lot to offer Impact Wrestling and deserves to be in some well thought out programs.
