Former WWE Talent Appearing Via Vignette On Tonight’s IMPACT
IMPACT Wrestling will have a former WWE talent appear on its program tonight.
According to PWInsider, “a former WWE talent will make his debut tonight in a vignette”. The name was not provided, but they were told it’s a person who “never really got a fair chance” during his time with WWE.
WWE has released a number of wrestlers over the 14 months, and it’s unknown if the person appearing tonight is part of that group.
The following names are currently free agents
Mojo Rawley (free agent beginning May 31),
No Way Jose
Akam and Rezar
Several other names who were released over the last two months are currently bound by non-compete clauses.
If more details are known, an update will be provided.
IMPACT on AXS will air tonight beginning at 7 p.m with Before The Impact, featuring the first-ever IMPACT Iron Match Match between TJP and X-Division Champion Josh Alexander.
