Scarlett Bordeaux is no longer with Impact Wrestling. The promotion confirmed today that they have released the 28-year-old Chicago-native from her contract.
A brief statement by Impact reads, “IMPACT Wrestling confirms that it has released Scarlett Bordeaux from her commitments to IMPACT. We wish her every success in her future endeavors.”
Bordeaux commented on her release as well. She wrote on Twitter that she “couldn’t be more excited to just be a free agent for a while.” She is now taking independent bookings. Here are some of her upcoming dates:
Scarlett Bordeaux & Killer Kross Situation With Impact Wrestling
Last month, Bordeaux was reported to have requested her release from Impact, something her partner Killer Kross is also reported to have done.
Kross spoke to the Wrestling Perspectives podcast last week and stressed that Kross and Bordeaux are not happy with how they had been financially compensated by the company. It was noted that Bordeaux lives with her Mother in Chicago and works a side-job to make ends meet.
Kross went into further details regarding his own situation:
“I personally really don’t really need much,” Kross said. “But it’s just different when you have people to take care of, circumstances change in life. You can’t anticipate it. […] Being told to go get another job by your job, that’s f****d up. You’re struggling to make ends meet taking care of people, and the job that you can barely afford to have tells you to go get another job so you can keep that job. It’s like working at a corporation being told to go work at McDonald’s. It’s a weird feeling.”
Kross has mentioned in other interviews that he enjoys the creative freedom Impact has given him, however.

Kross and Bordeaux recently teamed together on AAA’s big Verano De Escandalo card over the weekend. Unfortunately, there was an incident involving a fan grabbing Bordeaux during the match.
