Abyss, Sonjay Dutt Leave Impact Wrestling; Believed To Be Headed To WWE

Impact Wrestling is seeing even more overturn just after their Homecoming pay-per-view.

PWInsider has reported that Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer Abyss and former X-Division champion Sonjay Dutt have both left the company. Both men had split time working backstage in Impact, in addition to wrestling on-screen, although Dutt was sidelined since 2017 with an injury.

The split was said to have been amicable, but that Dutt and Abyss were offered new opportunities that will likely see them both end up in WWE. Dutt was working in creative, while Abyss had served as a producer, and had actually been advertised as "re-signing" with Impact last July.

Abyss has been the most steady, loyal employee in the history of Impact Wrestling, TNA Wrestling, Global Force Wrestling and NWA:TNA history. He had WWE offers in the mid-2000's with speculation of a desired program with The Undertaker, but ended up sticking with TNA. 

When Fightful asked Impact about Sonjay Dutt's injury status recently, we received a very coy non-answer. Dutt actually passed up a WWE Performance Center job as a player-coach to return to TNA Wrestling in 2017 alongside his longtime friend Jeff Jarrett.

PWInsider reports that Tommy Dreamer and Konnan will replace Dutt and Abyss.
