Scarlett reportedly asked for her release from the company last month. It is believed that she was unhappy with how little money she was making in her pay-per-appearance contract.
Bordeaux’s real-life boyfriend Killer Kross has also reportedly requested his release from the company. However, it appears as if he won’t be leaving the promotion.
PWInsider‘s Mike Johnson is reporting that multiple people within the company have told him that Kross will not be granted his release and will continue to work for Impact Wrestling.
He also reports that higher-ups within Impact are unhappy with Kross for publically expressing his unhappiness. They are also unhappy with Petey Williams, a producer for the promotion, for allowing Kross to come onto his podcast and share his grievances.
