One former TNA star could be headed to the WWE.
That star is Rockstar Spud, who has removed references to the promotion on his Twitter bio and he’s taking independent dates in November. Thus, he will not be working the Bound For Glory PPV nor the TV tapings next week.
Impact Wrestling holds their Bound For Glory pay-per-view event in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada at the Aberdeen Pavilion on Sunday, November 5th.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that Spud asked for his release and that it was granted. His choice to ask for a release wasn’t done out of ill will but rather it was merely a business decision.
According to a report by PWinsider.com, WWE is looking to sign Spud with the idea of adding him to the cruiserweight division, which is featured on Monday Night Raw on the USA Network as well as 205 Live, which airs exclusively on the WWE’s streaming service, WWE Network.
Spud started his professional wrestling career in 2001 and has wrestled for various promotions such as Frontier Wrestling Alliance (2004–2011), International Pro Wrestling: United Kingdom (2004–2010), X Wrestling Alliance (2007–2011), Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and One Pro Wrestling (2006–2014).
Spud appeared on the reality show “TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp” that began airing on 1 January 2013 on Challenge. On the final edition of the show, Spud won the competition and earned a spot in the TNA roster. Spud made his debut on 7 February episode of Impact Wrestling in an interview segment.
During his time with the promotion, he was two-time TNA X Division Champion. Spud’s role on Impact Wrestling on Pop TV was reduced in recent years. On 19 January 2017 episode of Impact, Aron Rex and Spud defeated the team composed by Robbie E and Swoggle. Spud was abruptly taken out of the partnership with Rex due to the company's new management and Rex no longer being contracted with Impact Wrestling.
The promotion then made him the new ring announcer for Impact Wrestling. Moving onto April, he was viciously attacked with a hammer by Swoggle, who accidentally has his pants ripped off by Spud earlier in the night.
