Tonight’s Bound For Glory is Impact Wrestling’s biggest show of the year but the recent departures and Taya Valkyrie’s personal issues that forced her to pull out of the show seem to be overshadowing tonight’s event.
The news is not getting better because PWInsider is reporting that Dean Broadhead, who was their Chief Financial Officer for many years, was quietly let go at the end of September.
His departure might be related to the news regarding Anthem’s move to Toronto, Canada. Ed Nordholm emailed the staff in Nashville to let them know that they would be “consolidating” the office with the Anthem office in Toronto. This confirms the speculation about the company moving to Canada. It’s not clear what this means for the staff in Nashville (Josh Mathews, Jeremy Borash, Bob Ryder, and others) but the belief is that the production for the Impact Wrestling show would stay in Nashville.
We previously noted that Anthem is cost-cutting and they be using more local talent to cut down on travel costs and because of tax breaks that they would get when they use a certain number of Canadian workers on their shows.
