A number of IMPACT Wrestling stars may leave for WWE and AEW

Last updated

A number of IMPACT Wrestling stars will likely be leaving the company in the very near future, according to recent reports and discussions.

According to former WWE and TNA referee Brian Hebner, there are a number of stars who are in ‘limbo’ with the company.

Speaking on his Reffin’ It Up podcast, he revealed: “I didn’t see any (of the contracts) obviously, but there was some word that I had received from a few of the guys that were in limbo as far as what they were doing.

“I knew they signed six-month deals and there were quite a few of them, to be honest, that I was told about. That looks like October is when these deals run out, sometime in October. It’s going to be a really interesting time for Impact as far as their biggest PPVs, or one of their biggest PPVs of their year, Bound for Glory” Hebner added.

“I don’t want to discuss it because it’s not my business. I don’t even know if what I’m saying is actually 100% correct as far as the people I’m thinking about. That’s why I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to say anything out of turn” he added.

“Now things have changed quite a bit since the new regime has come in, so maybe some of the thought process has changed a little bit. I know several, and when I say several, I’m talking about 4-6 guys who really, really wanted to stay with Impact to see if they can work something out there because they were really happy with the travel and the money, and all that kind of thing.

“So I know there are people there that are extremely excited to stay. I just don’t know if that will be that with the way the new regime is because nobody wanted to go to WWE except for the money.

“I mean, that’s what it was. Now people want to go because they feel like it’s a totally different place and it’s not being run by Vince McMahon and that f**k face, Johnny Ace” Hebner concluded.
