George Murdoch, FKA Tyrus, is gone from Impact Wrestling… again.
The 45-year-old heavyweight had originally left the company in the summer of 2017 but resurfaced at the last set of TV tapings from Orlando. The episodes of Impact filmed during these tapings have been airing since February 1st, 2018.
According to a recent report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Tyrus has once again given Impact Wrestling his notice. Tyrus stated that he and the company didn’t see eye-to-eye creatively.
George “Tyrus” Murdoch
Tyrus gave similar reasons for ending his relationship with Impact Wrestling the last time around in 2017 as well. He has plenty going on for himself outside of wrestling, so it is not too big a surprise that he is willing to leave a company if he doesn’t enjoy what he is working on.
Tyrus is a regular on several Fox News programs and has had a successful 2017 as an actor. He appeared in 2 episodes of the hit show GLOW on Netflix last year. Tyrus also appears in an episode of the Netflix original series, Love, which was released earlier this year. Several other IMDB credits have been added to his profile the last two years as well.
Impact Wrestling Redemption
This is an important weekend for Impact Wrestling. The company’s Redemption PPV runs on Sunday and curious eyes will be interested in what kind of product they present.
The main event had been scheduled to be Alberto El Patron vs Austin Aries. Since El Patron no-showed the LU vs Impact show WrestleMania weekend, however, it has since been changed. The Lucha Brothers, Fenix & Pentagon, will now join Austin Aries in a triple threat match for the Impact World Championship in the main event of Redemption.
The last set of TV tapings included writing off several departing wrestlers and finishing up storylines. The Redemption PPV should give Impact fans a better idea of where the company is trying to go in the future.
