Rob Van Dam, Katie Forbes no longer with Impact Wrestling


First reported by PWInsider and confirmed by Dave Meltzer, Rob Van Dam and Katie Forbes are no longer with Impact Wrestling.

The two had not been working under a contract and their latest agreement had run out, wrapping up with a storyline that played out on last week's AXS show. RVD pinned Sami Callihan in a match, giving Forbes five minutes alone with him. Callihan then took out RVD with a chair and hit a Cactus Special on Forbes to close out the angle.

The 49-year-old returned to Impact in 2019 and initially worked in an ECW reunion angle with Tommy Dreamer and Sabu against current day Impact stars. He was also part of the Cancel Culture group with Joey Ryan until Ryan was fired due to sexual assault allegations. 

Forbes, Van Dam's girlfriend, also signed with Impact in 2019 and debuted at their United We Stand event.

A former TNA World Champion and X-Division Champion, Van Dam didn't hold any titles in his second run.
