We reported earlier this week here on eWn that Leon Slater has signed a long-term deal with TNA/Impact Wrestling.
While appearing on SportsKeeda’s “WrestleBinge” podcast, Impact Wrestling President Scott D’Amore revealed why he decided to sign Slater. He said,
“I think Leon Slater is exactly what TNA was built on which is giving opportunity to young, super talented people. So 19 years old, wise, a little mature beyond his years and as good of a prospect as I think you see anywhere in the industry. Excited to have Leon with us.“
Major League Wrestling has announced that Tony Deppen will be returning from his ‘suspension’ at MLW Fightland.
You can check out the official announcement below:
Tony Deppen’s suspension has ended. Deppen, who served the suspension under protest, is now active to compete effective immediately.
Deppen was fined, along with TJ Crawford for brutally attacking Kevin Blackwood last month. Refusing to pay his fine, Deppen was suspended for his conduct and defiance of league rules and policies.
While some have labeled Deppen obnoxious and “too outspoken for his own good,” there is no denying Deppen has become one of the more impressive new arrivals in MLW this year.
Deppen will next compete in MLW November 18th in Philadelphia.
