This comes after the many rumors of the past few months related to payments to its fighters by the company. Impact wrestlers were said to cover their expenses and the company failed to provide them with help in many ways. In addition, other controversies such as the catering service or the delay of defaults had also been mentioned.
It should be remembered that Impact Wrestling announced last Sunday that the return of one of its best events after 4 years, Lockdown, scheduled for the end of March, had been canceled by the coronavirus. The company is studying different possibilities for it to take place.
