His contract actually expired several weeks ago, but the two sides agreed that he would work through the PPV in order to close out his storyline with Swann.

Johnny Impact is now technically a free agent, although the two sides are continuing to discuss the possibility of working together again in the future.

Hennigan’s wife, Taya Valkyrie, who is the current Impact Knockouts Champion, is still under contract with the company as her deal is believed to run through the end of 2019.

Hennigan had been under contract with the promotion since 2017 where he became a top star for them with his Mayor of Slamtown” persona. He also became a top star for the El Rey Network’s Lucha Underground promotion where he performed as Johnny Mundo. 

Time will tell whether he makes a new deal with Impact Wrestling or signs with other promotions such as WWE, AEW, NJPW, ROH, and MLW.
