IMPACT Wrestling star Moose has moved to refute claims that he has re-signed with the company.
It had initially been reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer that Moose had signed a new contract with IMPACT.
However, Moose later took to Twitter to deny the report, writing that it was “not true.”
The report comes as Moose prepares to take on Kenny Omega for the IMPACT World Championship at Against All Odds on June 12th.

Moose joined IMPACT in 2016 after a two-year stint with Ring Of Honor. Prior to that, the Maryland native enjoyed a spell in the NFL, notably turning out for the Atlanta Falcons and St. Louis Rams.
During his time in IMPACT, the star has won the now defunct Grand Championship and the TNA World title. The former NFL star later lost the TNA World Title in a unification match with Rich Swann.
Swann later lost the IMPACT World Championship to Kenny Omega at Rebellion. Moose earned his shot at Omega by winning a six-way number one contender’s match at Under Siege.
The new number one contender has also teased signing with NXT, tweeting “I love when you all argue about what my NeXT move is!!”
In other IMPACT related news, Don Callis is reportedly no longer an executive with the company.
Callis joined IMPACT as Co-Executive Vice President alongside Scott D’Amore in December 2017, later joining the commentary team.
Although Callis has since stepped out from behind the announce desk he remained in his executive role. However, it has now been reported by Fightful Select that Callis is no longer an executive “in any capacity” with IMPACT and Anthem Sports and Entertainment.
