Eli Drake Resigns With Impact
And it’s more good news for IMPACT as one of the company’s biggest names has re-signed despite apparent interest from WWE.
Eli Drake, who has held multiple titles since joining the brand in 2015, signed a new contract on June 25th. But in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted the deal is likely to be a short-term one, and may only last until the end of July this year.
This could mean that Drake is still looking to secure a way out of the company, but short term deals are a big part of how IMPACT works now as it’s a more cost effective way of doing business, given their pre-taped format.
