Impact Wrestling has seen a number of their top talents join the WWE in the past two years including AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Maria Kanellis, Mike Bennett, and Matt and Jeff Hardy, and now more names are calling it quits.
However, that hasn’t stopped Impact from letting some of its best stars leave. It was reported yesterday that the WWE was interested in signing Rockstar Spud, who was recently released by Impact.
On top of Spud, other stars like Madison Rayne, Taryn Terrell, and Reno Scum left Impact as well. Today, MJ Jenkins and Marshe Rockett also confirmed they are done with the company, making announcements on their Twitter accounts.
Thank you. I'm forever grateful for IMPACT and ready to move on :)

Today is a new day and a new chapter. Thank you @IMPACTWRESTLING for everything. Until we meet again!

Jenkins first appeared on Impact programming in March this year but wasn’t able to gain much momentum in her seven-month tenure with the company. As for Rockett, he joined Impact in March 2016, but he also struggled to develop with them and never reached strong heights with them.
The immediate futures for both Rockett and Jenkins are unclear, though it is possible a separate wrestling promotion could look into signing them. WWE has often wasted no time signing away some of the better performers from their biggest “competition”, but Rockett and Jenkins may not garner any interest from Vince McMahon and co.
Impact Wrestling has undergone major changes in the past couple of weeks, recently announcing they terminated their contract with Jeff Jarrett and his Global Force Wrestling promotion.
That probably explains why they’ve let many of their wrestlers go, as Impact has undergone a handful of financial and business hardships over the past couple of years.
With Rockett and Jenkins gone, it’ll be worth seeing if Impact opts to release more of their stars. They’ve made it clear that nobody is safe, after all.
