As many of you know by now, Laurel Van Ness is likely on her way out of Impact Wrestling after requesting her release last month.
Sonjay Dutt recently spoke to the Indian media on an Impact Wrestling teleconference and he was asked about the current status of Impact Knockouts Champion Laurel Van Ness.
“Well, to put it simply, she’s the Knockouts Champion, and she’s here” Dutt replied. When asked to confirm if she was indeed still an active part of Impact Wrestling, Dutt confirmed, “she is.”
Dutt is telling the truth and no one has reported that she was granted her release. She is still with the company but it is expected that she will be granted her release once she drops the Knockouts Championship. The story is that she asked to be released during the last set of tapings. The problem is that she asked after they put the title on her so it puts Impact in a tough situation.
If she doesn’t drop it at an independent show then she would likely drop the title at the next set of tapings in Orlando in January.
