TNA have been keen to publicise the positive announcements of the re-signing of Abyss and Ethan Carter, shortly after they announced the retention of TNA Hall of Famer and Olympic Gold medallist Kurt Angle. However, now comes the not so good news that TNA are obviously not as keen to publicise or even publicly mention, reports wrestlinginc.com.
With the launch of their redesigned website yesterday, they have now moved ex-world champion and TNA Hall of Famer Bully Ray to the alumni section along with fellow team 3D/ Dudley's partner Devon, along with underused British talent Rob Terry. Additionally Brittany and Shark Boy are no longer working for the company or active members of the TNA roster.
The biggest name on the released list is Bully Ray. The multi time former World Tag Team champion relivatised his on screen character and personal fitness in his last few years in TNA. Winning their World Title twice and over the last two years being a major focal point of the promotions programming.
He fronted the dominant heel group Aces and Eights in some of the best heel work of his career. Latterly in 2014 he delivered on his promise by putting his then boss, Dixie Carter through a table in New York to the jubilation of fans around the world.
His absence from Impact and also his reported backstage agent role will be test for the company's young roster.
Bully Ray has expressed an interest in a return to the WWE in many prior interviews, and with him and Devon now free agents this could be a distinct possibility. Many WWE fans would welcome him back as either part of The Dudley's to revitalized the tag division or in particular as one last heel run in the WWE's upper card.
