Impact Wrestling issued the following press release on Monday.
“Impact Wrestling confirms that it has terminated its contracts with Dave Crist and Joey Ryan, effective immediately. In addition, it has suspended Michael Elgin pending further review of allegations of misconduct.”
Powell’s POV: There are at least 15 allegations against Ryan, and several against Crist as part of the #SpeakingOut movement. As such, it felt like it was only a matter of time before the company would sever ties with both men. Elgin was accused of trying to send unwanted nude photos to a woman named Kaitlin Diemond, who alleges that he used a fake name.
Who wants to see Mike Elgins dick pic? I still have the convo, unwanted photo, and emails he tried to send me under a fake name in 2016. @JordynneGrace tried to help me bring this to light when his first scandal came out but the wrestling media didn’t care #SpeakingOut
