Impact quietly removed several names from their active roster of wrestlers.
Alisha Edwards, Swoggle (a.k.a. Hornswoggle in WWE), The Veterans of War (Mayweather & Wilcox), and Mahabali Shera have all had their names removed from the Impact Wrestling website on Monday, Nov. 13, 2017.
Alisha Edwards began her wrestling career with New England Championship Wrestling and World Women's Wrestling in 2006, and was the World Women's Wrestling Champ from 2007 to 2009. She appeared in Impact Wrestling (then called Total Nonstop Action Wrestling) in 2008 in a debut match against Awesome Kong, but lost. She then returned in 2015 to face off against Madison Rayne and also lost.

Her longest time with Impact Wrestling came in February of this year, where both she and husband Eddie Edwards had a feud against Davey Richards and his wife, Angelina Love. Richards and Love attacked them during a taping of Impact!, causing Eddie to lose the match. At Slammiversary, both Edwards teamed up against Richards and Love in the first ever Mixed Tag Team Fullmetal Mayhem match on July 2, 2017. After Edwards emerged victorious Love left Impact wrestling.
Swoggle is perhaps better known by the name Hornswoggle from his time in WWE. He began with the promotion in 2006 as a leprechaun-themed character paired with Irish wrestler Finlay, causing all manner of mayhem when he’d rush out from beneath the ring. Later he’d adopt his own wrestling persona as Hornswoggle where he’d move on to become the WWE Cruiserweight Champion. He’d also briefly have a storyline where he played Vince McMahon’s illegitimate son.

He was suspended from the WWE in 2015, and later released. He’d join Impact Wrestling in late 2016 on "Total Nonstop Deletion" episode and would appear in several tag team matches following his debut where he would spend most of his time feuding with Rockstar Spud. He last appeared in a June episode of Impact! where Spud struck him repeatedly with a hammer.
Composed of Mayweather (perhaps better known as Crimson) and Wilcox (known as Jax Dane in Ring of Honor), the Veterans of War were a short-lived tag team duo that debuted on the April 20, 2017, episode of Impact!. They defeated Fallah Bahh and Mario Bokara in their first match.
The first Indian wrestler signed with Impact, Mahabali Shera joined the promotion in 2014. He had a shot at the Impact Grand Championship, but lost during the Feb. 9 episode of Impact!. He was last seen during a Gauntlet match on May 30 for the Mumbai taping of Impact! where he won inaugural Sony SIX Invitational Trophy.
