Report: Johnny Mundo Headed To GFW

Johnny Mundo may just be the next addition to the GFW roster.

Mundo was advertised for the StocktonCon 2017 pop culture convention, but a tweet sent out by the convention stated that Mundo will no longer be appearing due to contract obligation with GFW, even though he did not have any prior contractual commitments with the promotion. StocktonCon 2017 runs on August 19 and 20, which runs around the same time as the next set of Impact tapings, which run from August 17-20.
