re: Impact Star Requests Release After Negotiations To Restructure Contract; Scarlett Bordeaux Also Requests Release; Scarlett Granted Release
It's sad. Impact really made these two relevant & slowly groomed Kross/Scarlett to be big acts only for them to turn around & try to ditch the company when they are under contract.
Impact can't really make an exception for them because what is to prevent other talent from pulling the same stunt? Why have contracts at all if talent can just ditch them at the drop of a hat? I could understand it if Kross/Scarlett's contracts are up & they want more money but during the term? Not so much.
My last thought on this situation is it reeks of tampering from another company. Kross & Scarlett seem pretty intent on burning a bridge here, my question is why? You only do that if you have a golden parachute & someone else is going to offer you more money. AEW seems to want to go the moral route with their business & it would seem out of place for their people at this point. On the other hand, the slime in charge of WWE wouldn't think twice about doing something like this.
