Fightful Select has a report on Impact Wrestling attempting to bring in some new talents at last night’s Bound for Glory 2021 event that fell through for the company. Last night’s card was held at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas.

Adam Scherr, aka former WWE Superstar Braun Strowman, was someone talent expected to come in for the company, but he did not appear on last night’s show. Both sides had reportedly been in talks, and a deal has not yet been made.

Also, the report noted that Impact Wrestling was looking to bring in former NXT Superstar, Jonah Rock, formerly Bronson Reed. Impact sources stated that Jonah Rock was at one point booked for Bound for Glory before he was later unbooked. It’s unknown why the booking fell through, and the Impact sources did not offer reasons why it fell through. An earlier report by Fightful Select stated that there was interest in Jonah Rock from both NJPW and Impact, and NJPW “made a big play” to sign him.

Another former WWE talent who is said to have been contacted by Impact is Bray Wyatt, aka Windham Rotunda. According to the report, he would not have been available for last night’s event since his WWE non-compete clause has not yet expired. WWE confirmed Wyatt’s release on July 31. Fightful’s report states that a deal to sign Wyatt to Impact “was never close to happening.”
