Referee Earl Hebner Makes Impact Wrestling Departure

earl hebner leaves impact wrestling departure quit

Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned referee Earl Hebner is no longer working for Impact Wrestling.

Sources tell us Hebner left the company this week and it was due to Impact informing the referees that they’d be using local refs while in Canada for Bound For Glory/the tapings that follow.

The past week has seen an exodus of referees from Impact. First Brian Hebner was granted his release, then Brian Stiffler made his exit from the company.

Earl had been with Impact since 2006 and was inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame in 2015.

No word on what his plans for the future are at this point.

    Two days before their PPV and TV tapings they released three referees and Rockstar Spud leaves. And James Storm is looking to leave too, what will Impact Wrestling do for 2018? Sell the video library n IPs to WWE and the TV deals to Billy Corgan-owned?

    • Will Henderson

      if Scott D’Amore remains at Anthem, then don’t be surprise if he spearheads a Impact Wrestling/Border City Wrestling merger where the company is basically Border City Wrestling with the Impact Wrestling name and trademarks and a few Impact Wrestling talents that goes with the names/trademarks post-merger while the current incarnation of Impact Wrestling folds at the same time.
