Former-IMPACT World Champion Eli Drake took to Twitter to announce that he is leaving the company after 4 years. Drake had nothing but kind words for the promotion, saying he “appreciate[s]the chance that was taken” on the Maryland-born wrestler.
After 4 years with Impact Wrestling, some ups, some downs, I would like to thank them for the overall great experience. Through those years, I had the fortune of carrying 3 different title belts, having my own talk show (Fact of Life), and was always given the trust to craft my own promos, virtually from day 1. I appreciate the chance that was taken on me and the trust I was given, as well as the friends and experiences I gained along the way. I wish Impact Wrestling nothing but continued success and growth going forward.
Today, I am OFFICIALLY a FREE AGENT
