Tyrus of GFW (fka Brodus Clay) is unhappy with creatives direction for him

Tyrus of GFW/Impact Wrestling & formerly Brodus Clay in WWE, Said today in an Instagram post that he’s upset with how GFW creative has used him over the past 4-5 tapings (Spoiler not much at all). He did it with dignity and class though & was just standing his ground.

   I’m gonna quote what he said word for word (Cause reporters don’t like to do that shit LOL) So here we go THIS is what Tyrus said verbatim in the IG video…….. “Wrestling fans, Impact fans. This is Tyrus here, My mentor Dusty Rhodes once told me the Wrestling business is like a canvas and I’m the Wrestler I gotta paint that Canvas, and at the end of the day it’s my canvas. Well I’ve been with Impact for more than 3 years now and 99% of it has been mostly positive and I’ve enjoyed my time here, But the last 4-5 tapings for me and my fans have been terrible, we’ve been handcuffed and treated like a 2nd class citizen creatively and we’ve worked too hard to become a cross over star to be treated like we’re not. Soooo I’m not happy creatively with the way Impact’s been treating me, Been playing phone tag all day with em (Management?) And I don’t got time for it. You don’t wanna use me the way I think I’ve earned the right to be used that’s cool! I’m about to get my Kaepernick on and I’m taking a knee, So I will not be at TNA tapings this week cause I’m on hold out status and if your good with that cool if not whatever it is, I’m not gonna be there till I’m treated rigbt, Nuff said”

   Though I will say Impact can’t just cater to Tyrus, they do need to at least give him something worthy of his talents. Not main event stuff but mid card stuff & being in a tag team would be great…… Like my friend BQ_KOTM on Twitter said I would hate being a body guard type character for so long especially with his cross over appeal and the stuff he has done with Fox & GLOW on Netflix. I just learned that Tyrus has landed a role on the new AMC show Preacher. I didn’t wanna say this but it’s looking like Impact has dropped the ball with Tyrus now just like WWE did all those years ago.

So It looks like Tyrus will not be at Impact till he is treated the way he rightfully should be. I say good on him for taking a stand and holding his ground on being treated well with Impact creatively, He’s too good to be sitting at home for months & months.

Breaking news concerning GFW signing major Indie talent

It’s being reported that Johnny Mundo, Taya Valkyrie, and the Christ brothers have signed to work upcoming live events for GFW/Impact Wrestling. 

Jeremy Borash broke the news during a conference call earlier today with the media he also noted that Drago of AAA will be apart of some upcoming live events as well. 

Mundo & Valkyrie won’t be able to be on TV till Lucha Underground S3 is done. So hopefully this doesn’t turn into another Cody Rhodes situation where they only do a couple shows for GFW/Impact.

Writers take: This is a damn good signing for GFW/Impact. Even if they don’t do TV down the line this helps them out selling tickets for the live events, etc. The future is looking pretty bright for Impact as of now.
