IMPACT Wrestling posted the following message, indicating that Michael Elgin will no longer be appearing on their programming moving forward. The wording did not specifically say that he was released or still suspended (the original statement last week noted that he was suspended pending a review) and when asked for clarification on whether he is still under contract, the company deferred back to their statement. However, Elgin himself released a message which all but confirms that he is gone.

I appreciate the time and opportunities given to me with Impact. That locker room, the film crew and all the company officials were a pleasure to be associated with. I hope that in time things get sorted.
