Backstage News on Magnus and James Storm Leaving TNA, Skepticism Over Possible GFW Invasion Angle


– Regarding Magnus leaving TNA, notes that he is one of several wrestlers who are facing expired contracts this week. Magnus is not renewing and will be a free agent. He is taking dates with Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling and will be working their first TV tapings on July 24th in Las Vegas. As of now, Magnus is not signing with GFW but is working a few dates there. His TNA departure is described as a business move that was amicable on both sides.

It’s also confirmed by multiple sources that James Storm will be leaving, as first broken by Brian Fritz of Sporting News. Storm has been talking about leaving for some time and his deal expires on Tuesday.

It should be noted that within TNA, there is skepticism about all the releases because of the feeling that they are being worked for a GFW invasion angle. There’s a feeling that Low Ki’s release is legit and while the other departures may be real, anything is possible.

It is worth noting that Jarrett’s TV tapings on July 24th from Las Vegas is right in the middle of a lengthy set of TNA tapings in Orlando.
