It was reported over the course of the week that all the referees from Impact Wrestling opted out of their contracts with the company.
According to PWInsider, the reason they wanted out is because Anthem offered them much lower paydays than what they normally would receive. This move caused a “domino effect” when The Hebners requested their release instead.
In regards to their replacements on tonight’s Bound for Glory event and television tapings, it’s being rumored that they reached out to Jack Doan a to work the event. We are unable to confirm if he has agreed to work the shows. It’s expected all the refs will be locals.
