BREAKING NEWS: Former X Division Champion Gone From TNA

Jay Lethal: Gone from TNA

Jay Lethal: Gone from TNA

Former X Division Champion, Jay Lethal has been removed from TNA’s roster page. PWInsider is reporting that while details haven’t been released, he is in fact done with TNA.

Ray’s Thoughts:

This is rather shocking news heading into Impact. Its hard to imagine a guy that TNA put over Ric Flair and the rest of Fortune just six+ months ago not being part of the TNA roster.

His push (which was much deserved in my opinion) was derailed late last year with a loss to Jeff Hardy and his feud with Flair and Fortune was pretty much dropped. I guess if TNA wasn’t going to do anything with him, then why waste his time. But i can’t help but think they dropped the ball with him and wasted a perfectly good run on TV.

I’d like to say Thank you  to Jay for the great TNA memories he delivered and hopefully you’ll be back at somepoint.

I expect that more roster cuts are on the way with alot of recent rumors of major changes within the company. The next one gone is your guess. More on this as it breaks.

*Update* A number of TNA stars are apparently upset with Jay Lethal’s sudden departure from TNA. The following remarks were written on Twitter.

Max Buck: “Ridiculous. Just ridiculous.”

Amazing Red: “…… ;( %&*$” “Morale has just took a nose dive (SMFH).”

Jeremy Buck: “worst possible thing to happen to r locker room.”

Tara wrote to Lethal: “Oh I hope this is just a rumor. Because I will miss you terribly.”

Jay himself also addressed the matter via Twitter, here’s what he had to say:

“While I am sad that my time with TNA has ended, I am looking forward to this next chapter of my career. Oooooh yeahh! Now taking booking.”

  2. Devastating news, especially given his match on Xplosion this past week. (Haven’t watched Lockdown yet)

  3. Mic Skills Required says:

    Don’t get me wrong always thought Lethal was hilarious with his Macho Man and Slick Ric Flair impersonations but the guy was an average talent when it came to in ring ability, let him go back to ROH and give the roster spot to somebody more deserving!

  4. Lee says:

    What a great talent to lose. In and out the ring he entertained me no end. Whats happening to all the lighter wrestlers? Why are they being forced aside for the muscle bound freaks?
