The GFW roster returned to the Impact Zone Thursday night for the live Destination X special, and they’ll be taping new episodes of Impact over the next few days. Some new faces are expected to join the roster, but fans will have to say goodbye to one star who has been with the company for a few years now, because Tyrus has confirmed he’s been released from his contract.

Earlier this week Tyrus took to social media to declare that he wouldn’t be attending this week’s Impact tapings. He expressed frustration with his position in GFW when he made the following statement:
“I’ve been with Impact for 3 years now, and 99 percent of it has been mostly positive, and I’ve enjoyed my time there,” Tyrus said. “But the last 4 or 5 tapings for me and my fans has been terrible. We’ve been handcuffed and treated a like a second class citizen creatively, and we’ve worked too hard to become a crossover star to be treated like we’re not. So, I’m not happy creatively the way Impact’s been treating me. I’ve been playing phone tag all day with them, and I just ain’t got time for it.”
“So, you don’t wanna use me the way I think I’ve earned the right to be used, that’s cool,” Tyrus added. “I’m about to get my Kaepernick on, and I’m taking a knee. I will not be at TNA tapings this week because I’m on hold out status, and if you’re good with that cool, if you’re not whatever it is, cause I’m not gonna be there until I get treated right. Enough said.”
