Jeff Jarrett's recent stay in Impact Wrestling lasted for 10 months...

What's the story?

Reby Hardy, Ethan Carter III, and Gregory Helms took to Twitter to react to the news that Impact Wrestling has parted ways with Jeff Jarrett this morning. Take a look at their reactions below:

In case you didn't know...

Sportskeeda reported earlier on Monday that Impact Wrestling announced via Twitter that they parted ways with Jeff Jarrett. Take a look at this tweet below:

Jarrett re-joined Impact Wrestling when Anthem purchased the company from Dixie Carter this past January. His company Global Force Wrestling would merge with the company in June, but Anthem removed all mentions of Global Force Wrestling in the branding of the upcoming Bound For Glory pay per view.

The heart of the matter

The disdain that Reby Hardy has for Jeff Jarrett was made public on Twitter over the past year when Anthem was threatening legal action for the rights to the Broken Hardy gimmick. I'm sure she had a large grin on her face when she first heard of this news today.

It definitely seems that Gregory Helms approves of the decision to part ways with Jeff Jarrett. He indicated on his tweet that moving on without Jarrett is considered progress for the company. Helms worked for Impact Wrestling (mainly as a manager) for the past two years before leaving the company in June.

Former Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Ethan Carter III took a lighter side in reacting to the news. He's definitely glad he didn't make the permanent decision to get the Global Force Wrestling tattooed on his body as it seems that Anthem will go back to calling the company Impact Wrestling.

What's next?

Bound For Glory is one of Impact Wrestling's biggest pay per views of the year and the main event will be the current champion Eli Drake taking on Johnny Impact (John Morrison). There will be an Ultimate X match for the X-Division Championship, and a triple threat match for the Impact Knockouts Championship between the champion Sienna, Gail Kim, and Allie.

Author's take...

It's been a rough year for Impact Wrestling ever since Anthem Sports took over in January. With all of the rumors going around that Anthem is hemorrhaging money and looking to sell the company, the future of Impact Wrestling is really up in the air right now.
