We noted a few days ago that more wrestlers would be departing Impact Wrestling as the company gets ready for Bound For Glory and their next set of TV tapings in Ottawa, Canada.
On Wednesday, we learned of two more names that are no longer with the company. Marshe Rockett and MJ Jenkins confirmed on Twitter that they are done with Impact Wrestling. It’s not clear if this is related to recent budget cuts but the word at Impact is that they want to use more Canadian talent at BFG and the TV tapings because they get tax breaks when they reach a certain quota.
Today is a new day and a new chapter. Thank you @IMPACTWRESTLING for everything. Until we meet again!

Thank you. I'm forever grateful for IMPACT and ready to move on 🙂

Jenkins and Rocket are the latest in a long list of names that have left the company in recent months including Madison Rayne, Reno Scum, Rockstar Spud, and Taryn Terrell.
Rockett had not been used on Impact Wrestling TV in several months. Jenkins wrestled on a One Night Only PPV and it was announced that she signed a contract in July but was not used much on TV.
