There are two more behind the scenes departures at Impact Wrestling this week.
John Gaburick is essentially done with the company. His deal expires on 12/31 but there are no more shows this year so there is nothing else for him to do with Impact. Gaburick’s departure was expected as he has been working on outside projects this year. He was kept around to help with the transition to Anthem management.
Another person leaving the company is Bob Rosen. Rosen was in charge of transporting and setting up the ring at the Impact shows and had been with the company for 13 years. Rosen posted the following on Facebook regarding his departure:
“Well it’s time to thank everyone who trusted me to build and keep anyone who step foot into one of my rings safe. I’m officially gone from Impact Wrestling (not by my choice!) $. The last 13 years have been the greatest time in my life from the great talent who showed me much respect for what we did with the rings and cages .To the back production people who never got the credit they deserve. These people who come together under great stress and pull off some of the greatest show you’ve watched weather (sic) it was TNA or IMPACT WRESTLING.And to the friends and fans I had the privilege of making through my time on the road in this business.You will always be my friends ! I’m not gone from wrestling .You will see me again because I still believe every talent deserves to work in a great ring ! My passion for this business has taken a hit because on how this staff was treated but I still love wrestling and I will be back. I’m still building the best rings today ! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!”
Rosen worked at the Aro Lucha pilot taping a couple of weeks ago.
