WWE released Steve Cutler from his contract as part of their pandemic cuts, but it didn’t take him long to find a new home in Impact Wrestling. Now as Steve Maclin, he is a top name for the former TNA, but there is some mixed news about his current status.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that, “there’s some good news and some bad news on Steve Maclin.” This comes as Slammiversary is ahead of the company, and Maclin was previously scheduled for a big tag team match.

At this time, it appears that the former Impact World Champion has been pulled from the Slammiversary show. He suffered a torn groin, but the good news is that he won’t require surgery.
