Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Impact Wrestling is not happy with Rockstar Spud leaving the company to go work for WWE.
The company apparently spent a lot of money helping out Spud with his via issues that were preventing him from working in the US. They spent roughly $20,000 helping him out. Two weeks after the issue was resolved, he asked for his release from the company. However, it’s worth pointing out that the visa issues were because of an error in the paperwork that Impact made during the “Dixie Carter era.”
As previously noted, Spud is expected to debut on 205 Live next week on RAW, alongside of Hideo Itami.
