As previously reported, Dave Sahadi, who had been working the past decade as the Director and Producer for Impact Wrestling, was let go by the company two weeks ago.
Sahadi came to the company and worked in post-production until March 2006 before being promoted to Director of Impact. Dave Meltzer reported in The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that during his time with the company, he had taken five different pay cuts — four with the old regime and one with the new one to help money issues the company have had.
Sahadi was also owed $24,000 and $39,000 when the company was sold to Anthem, which he never collected. The idea was that he wanted to start a new clean slate with the new ownership but he was instead fired shortly after and replaced by Scott D’Amore’s buddy, Michael Vedder.
Sahadi’s release was described as a “budget cut.”
