Abyss (Chris Parks) and Sonjay Dutt (Retesh Bhalla) left Impact Wrestling to work in WWE, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com. Abyss was working mostly behind the scenes as a producer, while Dutt was a member Impact creative. Meanwhile, Konnan and Tommy Dreamer have been added to the Impact creative team.
Powell’s POV: The widespread assumption is that Dutt and Abyss will work behind the scenes in NXT. Konnan told me in a recent Pro Wrestling Boom Podcast that one of Dutt’s responsibilities was writing the LAX clubhouse scenes, which I mistakenly assumed was Konnan’s work. The creative team now appears to be Scott D’Amore, Don Callis, Jimmy Jacobs, Dreamer, and Konnan. Could Abyss be a surprise Rumble entrant?
