GFW’s Tyrus Says He’s Skipping GFW Tapings Due to How He’s Been Treated
GFW’s Tyrus said on Instagram that he is skipping this week’s Impact TV tapings because he’s not happy with how he’s being used and feels that he’s being treated like a “second class citizen.”
I’ve been with Impact for 3 years now. 99% of it has been mostly positive and I’ve enjoyed my time. But the last 4, 5, 10 weeks for me and my fans has been terrible. I’ve been handcuffed and treated like a second class citizen. I’ve been working too hard to become a crossover star to be treated like we’re not. So, I’m not happy creatively with the way Impact’s been treating me. I’ve been playing phone tag all day with them. I just ain’t got time for that. So, you don’t want to use me the way that I have earned the right to be used? That’s cool. Probably get my Kaepernick on and I’m taking a knee. So I will not be at TNA tapings this week because I’m on hold out status. I’m not gonna be there until I get treated right. Enough said.
He has barely been used lately, wrestling in only 4 matches since January, according to profightdb. He wrestled in WWE as Brodus Clay until his release in 2014.
