Michael Elgin Will Not Appear in Any Further Impact Wrestling Programming

michael elgin impact wrestling parts removed fired

Impact Wrestling has announced Michael Elgin will no longer appear on their shows going forward.

According to a statement first given to PWInsider, and later shared on their website:

“Impact Wrestling announced that Michael Elgin will not be appearing in any further Impact Wrestling programming.”

The report notes that Elgin has been removed from the roster page, as well as the merch store, but he has not been announced as officially released yet.

Elgin was suspended from Impact this week pending further review after being accused in the #SpeakingOut movement of sending unwanted nude photos to women, among other old incidents. The company also fired Joey Ryan and Dave Crist due to allegations made.

As we previously reported, Impact additionally terminated Tessa Blanchard’s contract last night. Blanchard, whose contract was set to expire next month, had reportedly landed in hot water after not filming content requested for a promo segment while quarantining in Mexico.

Blanchard was originally scheduled to defend the Impact title in the main event of Slammiversary next month against Elgin, Trey Miguel, Eddie Edwards and Ace Austin.

  1. Among other “OLD” incidents. At least speak out about shit that’s happening NOW…not crap that has happened in the PAST. All this bringing up people’s past is nothing but BULLSHIT.

  2. Hey Big Mike, how ya doing?

  3. Making Tessa Blanchard beat Sami Callahan to become champ was dumb. Scrawney girl vs hulking men is a bad look. Its s joke. She is great vs females as it should be separate divisions.
    Men watch womens wrestling for the sex appeal and small tight outfits. Always have and always will.
    Women vs men matches with Tessa were dumb and unwatchable as were the promos.

  4. WWE brought up hulk Hogan’s past too that was wrong they still did it though didn’t they what’s the difference?

  5. To me I don’t think it’s fair that Tessa Blanchard got fired. She was just trying to be safe like Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns.

    @rogeredwardsjr Tessa Blanchard could go to AEW OR WWE but they already made note that neither Federation will take her for the fact that she made racial comment and spit on another female superstar there saying they dont wanna take that risk of her being a possible bully or rasict..

  8. Tessa Blanchard screwed herself by not sending in the promos she was asked to. Hey getting fired had nothing to do with the coronavirus.
