GFW star sitting out Impact TV tapings

GFW star Tyrus (former WWE star Brodus Clay) posted the following video to Twitter on Wednesday evening announcing he would be sitting out the upcoming Impact TV tapings for Pop TV that run in Orlando from Thursday through next Tuesday.

Tyrus, who started working with Fox News as a contributor in the last year, stated he has been “handcuffed” and treated like a “second class citizen” at many tapings this year.

“I’m not happy creatively with how Impact has been treating me. Been playing phone tag all day with them. I just (don’t) have time for it. I’m about to get my Kaepernick on and take a knee. So I will not be at TNA tapings this week because I’m on hold out status.”
