Bobby Fish shockingly debuted for IMPACT Wrestling at Victory Road, but a new report has shed light on how long he may spend in the company.
Bobby Fish shocked many on Friday, 23 September, debuting for IMPACT Wrestling during their Victory Road special. The former WWE and AEW star had been a free agent since departing the latter at the end of August, with a move back to WWE seemingly the desired destination for Fish.
Instead, he came into the Anthem-helmed promotion, laying out Raj Singh and Shera during last Friday’s IMPACT Plus special. Per PWInsider, Fish remains a free agent as he’s not officially signed a deal with the company.
It’s believed that he filmed backstage content to air across IMPACT programming, and he’ll work the Bound For Glory pay-per-view on 7 October, as well as its subsequent television tapings. Both of those will emanate from Albany, New York.
Bobby Fish spent four years in WWE as part of The Undisputed ERA with Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, and Roderick Strong, being a two-time NXT Tag Team Champion and two-time NXT Tag Team of the Year during this stint. He joined All Elite Wrestling last October after his WWE release, forming The Undisputed Elite with Cole and O’Reilly.
His AEW departure has been surrounded in several reports ever since. It was alleged that he attempted to conspire his Undisputed Elite partners into leaving with him and heading back to WWE, while another story centred on his apparent hatred of CM Punk, publicly calling him out for his kickboxing abilities.
