Two of TNA’s top stars – Bobby Roode and Eric Young – have officially left the company. TNA released the following statement:
Bobby and Eric have been valuable members of the Impact Roster since 2004 and we wish them nothing but the best in their careers going forward.
Bobby had this to say earlier today, “To the guys and girls I got to work with for the past 12 years, Impact Wrestling, the office and everyone associated with me getting to live this dream, I say thank you. It is time for me to move on to the next chapter in my life. This has been amazing.”
Eric Young had this to say. “Thank you. Thank you to everyone who watched me for the past 12 years. Thank you to Impact Wrestling. I wish everyone here nothing but the best going forward.”
Executive Vice President of Creative and Television, John Gaburick added, “Bobby and Eric are true professionals. We salute them for the 12 years they gave TNA.
It’s believed that both requested their releases, rather than being fired or their contracts expiring.
12 years ago we signed our first contract side by side. Today we step into the open market again! pic.twitter.com/v8hW2vtqob
