Robbie E's initial TNA character was a spoof of MTV's Jersey Shore...

What's the story?

Former TNA World Tag Team Champion Robbie E announced via Twitter on Friday morning that he has left Global Force Wrestling. Take a look at his tweet below:

In case you didn't know...

Robbie E's pro wrestling career began in 2000 where he would wrestle for several different indie promotions before going to the WWE in 2005.

He only had one match with the company in a losing effort to Matt Morgan on an episode of SmackDown Live.

The heart of the matter...

In 2010, Robbie E made his debut with Impact Wrestling with a gimmick known as The Shore; which was a spoof on MTV's popular show The Jersey Shore.

Along with his manager Cookie, they would feud with actual actors from the reality series.

Robbie E is best known for his time in the tag team The BroMans with Jessie Godderz who were accompanied by DJ Z. Robbie and Jessie were able to win the TNA World Tag Team Championships on two occasions.

The BroMans would have a brief reunion in 2016, but Robbie E would end up wrestling his last match with the company on the February 9th edition of Impact Wrestling this year.

What's next?

It is unknown what is next for Robbie E, but it looks like he wants to continue wrestling based on his tweet from this morning.

Considering he was in the WWE before, maybe the door is open to try to go to NXT now that he has seven years of experience with Impact Wrestling under his belt.

Author's take...

While I wasn't a fan of Robbie E early on in his Impact Wrestling career, I really started to dig the BroMans tag team.

A lot of that probably had to do with being a major Big Brother fan; which Godderz competed on back in 2008.

I wouldn't rule out a switch to NXT or Ring of Honor for Robbie E in the future. While he won't become a main event player in each, he has a lot of value that he can bring to either company as he is only 33 years old.
