Impact Wrestling Releases Of Joey Ryan & Dave Crist, Michael Elgin Suspended


It’s official: Joey Ryan and Dave Crist are gone from Impact Wrestling, and that Michael Elgin is suspended. The Impact announced on Monday night that Ryan and Crist have had their contracts terminated effective immediately, while the company “has suspended Michael Elgin in the meantime the continuation of the review of allegations of misconduct.”Ryan has been touched by at least 15 allegations of sexual misconduct in the last days that the wrestlers took the floor to tell their stories of abuse, which has led to his Bar Wrestling promotion of the stop. Crist has also been accused of sexual misconduct, more specifically of sexually grooming a woman and sending her unwanted explicit photos, as well as an accusation of abuse and sexual assault by an ex-girlfriend.

Elgin, meanwhile, has been accused of sending sexual photos which has brought allegations to the light of the other past misdeeds, such as its alleged concealment of a wrestler who has worked for his Glory Pro Wrestling company, and has been accused of sexual assault in 2017.

Ryan has been configured to be a part of a six-man tag team match with Rob Van Dam and Jacob Crist against Crazzy Steve and two mystery wrestlers this week of the Impact, but PWInsider reports that the company has worked all day, Monday, to remove all traces of Ryan, the show and the game will not be shown. There is no word on how Jacob Crist, RVD or Katie Forbes will be used in the future, even if the Impact has deleted Dave Crist and #CancelCulture (which used to the profile page of all its members) from its official website already.
