Jake Something made a name for himself in Impact Wrestling, where he largely teamed up with Cody Deaner. He also teamed up with the likes of Rhino and Tommy Dreamer, back when he was known as Cousin Jake. It seems his time with Impact Wrestling is over.
On this week’s Impact Sacrifice pay-per-view, Jake Something competed in a top spot for the X-Division title. Jake Something had a good showing but was ultimately unable to come up with the victory.
According to a report by Fightful Select, Jake Something’s contract with Impact Wrestling was up at the end of February but had one outstanding date remaining on the contract.
This was used for his match at the Sacrifice pay-per-view, after which he officially became a free agent. It was said that the two parted on amicable terms and that Jake would “likely be welcomed back.”
Fightful reported recently that Jake’s deal was up at the end of February, which was true, but there was one outstanding date remaining on the contract. Despite the deal being set to expire, IMPACT put him in a top spot in an X-Division title match for Sacrifice, which is slated to be his last date with the company as of now
We’re told that as of this moment, no deal has been reached, and he isn’t scheduled to be at the Sunday television tapings after wrestling Saturday night. We’re told that things ended between the two sides on good terms, and that Jake would “likely be welcomed back.” It was reiterated to Fightful that this doesn’t necessarily spell the end of the two working together if they can reach an agreement in the future.
We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Jake Something now that his time in Impact Wrestling is over. He gained a lot of fanfare in the past couple of years, so it is likely he won’t have any trouble finding another place to call home.
