What’s the story?

Impact Wrestling has announced the release of several notable performers and personalities from its ranks.

Per the statements sent out by the promotion, multiple top stars have officially bid adieu to the promotion. Besides, MJ Jenkins and Rockstar Spud have also departed from the organization.

In case you didn’t know…

TNA/Impact Wrestling was bought from Dixie Carter by Anthem Sports & Entertainment a few months ago.

The new owners, Anthem executive Ed Nordholm in particular, have promised to usher in a new era for Impact Wrestling for the betterment of the promotion and entertainment of the fans.

The heart of the matter

Speaking of which, several notable talents have bid adieu to the Impact Zone in recent times namely Robbie E, Jeff Jarrett, Low Ki, Marshe Rockett, Taryn Terrell, Eddie Kingston, Reno Scum, Robert King (referee) and Brian Hebner (referee) have parted ways with Impact Wrestling.

Furthermore, Rockstar Spud requested for his release and was granted the same about 3 weeks back.

Additionally, MJ Jenkins—a Knockout who was rarely used in the Impact Zone—has also been let go of. She signed a contract with the promotion in July of this year but seldom competed for the company.

What’s next?

Sportskeeda will keep fans updated on the torrent of releases in Impact Wrestling. Stay tuned.

Author’s take

Well, these are big names, and truth be told, Anthem may be playing with fire by letting go of all this talent—a move which may very well come back to bite them when they have no one to call up.

Here’s wishing all the departed talent good luck. May these great stars find success outside TNA…WWE, ROH and NJPW beckon!
