Top Star & Top Tag Team Reportedly Done With IMPACT Wrestling

Johnny Impact (John Hennigan) has finished up with Impact Wrestling.

Johnny lost to X Division Champion Rich Swann at last night’s Impact Slammiversary 17 pay-per-view and that was the end of his current run, according to PWInsider.

Johnny’s contract with Impact Wrestling reportedly expired several weeks ago, and the two sides agreed that he would work through Slammiversary to finish the storyline with Swann.

While the 39 year old is currently a free agent, he is still in talks with Impact Wrestling about continuing their working relationship. He is still free to negotiate with or sign with any other promotion.

Impact had been with the company since 2017. He is married to current Impact Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie, who is believed to be signed through the end of this year.

There’s no word yet on if WWE or AEW would be interested in signing Johnny, who made his name with WWE.

At last night’s Slammiversary XVII PPV, Impact World Tag Team Champions The North (Ethan Page and Josh Alexander) were able to retain the titles against The Rascalz and LAX. Near the end of the bout, Santana went down with an injury, which was planned out in advance of the match.

Last night was also Santana and Ortiz’s final match with the promotion, according to F4WOnline’s Daily Update.

As noted, both WWE and AEW have interest in signing Santana and Ortiz. For WWE, they are looking to pick up as much talent as possible, while AEW is focused on continuing to build up its tag team division.

Santana and Ortiz joined LAX back in March of 2017 and are four-time Impact World Tag Team Champions. The are the longest reigning tag champs (261 days) and longest reigning combined tag champs (662 days).
