Impact Wrestling has moved several names to the alumni section of their website. While some names are likely no surprise, others indicate a quiet departure from the promotion has taken place. Perhaps the most notable name recently moved to this section is that of former X division champion Matt Sydal. The 35-year-old is currently awaiting knee surgery to repair damaged cartilage in his knee. He is expected to be out of action until May.
Sydal has drawn interest from both WWE and AEW.
Newly listed as Impact Wrestling Alumni:
- Austin Aries
- Caleb Konley
- El Hijo Del Fantasma
- Gursinder Singh
- Joseph Park
- McKenzie Mitchell
- Sonjay Dutt
- Taiji Ishimori
- Trevor Lee
In the case of Taiji Ishimori, when he signed last year he was to split his time between Impact and NJPW. He is now the IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion and hasn’t competed in Impact since July in Toronto.
Austin Aries had been gone from the company since dropping the world title to Johnny Impact at Bound For Glory in October.
The latest Impact Wrestling Results & Rankings page has been updated to reflect these changes. Impact is back this week from Mexico City for a taped show on Friday night.
