Eli Drake officially a free agent

Eli Drake was released from IMPACT Wrestling. The reason was said to be a breach of contract and this could have prevented him from signing with any other promotion for a year. However, now it seems that those issues have been resolved.

Drake took to Twitter and announced that he is now officially a free agent. He thanked IMPACT Wrestling for his time spent in the company and felt fortunate he was able to hold three titles in the company.

After 4 years with Impact Wrestling, some ups, some downs, I would like to thank them for the overall great experience. Through those years, I had the fortune of carrying 3 different tile belts, having my own talk show (Fact Of Life and was always given the trust to craft my own promos, virtually from day 1. I appreciate the chance that was taken on me and the trust I was given, as well as the friends and experiences I gained along the way. I wish Impact Wrestling nothing but continued success and growth going forward.


According to PWInsider, Drake and IMPACT Wrestling recently agreed on a settlement regarding him being fired and his non-compete clause, which ultimately led to him announcing he is a free agent.

    Keep the good form, Eli. After a name change and a repackage… IMPACT and the WWe can kiss it. If AEW, needs someone, they’ll let you know. Now back to NJPW and ROH, you go.

    Probably boils down to Impact not following through with proper protocol when releasing him.
    Personally I do not blame him for refusing the match and the comments he made as he had legitimate reason.
