Robbie E announces his departure from Impact Wrestling on Friday

Robbie E confirmed his departure from Impact Wrestling last night on Twitter, thanking the company for the last seven years of his wrestling career.

Rob Eckos debuted in TNA back in 2010 using the Robbie E gimmick, a play off the popularity of the then MTV reality series “Jersey Shore.”

He had runs as an X Division Champion (2010), TV Champion (2011) and Tag Team Champion with Jessie Godderz (2013 and 2014).

PWInsider.com reports Eckos requested his release from Anthem. He began working overseas for Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan and had agreed to terms on a new deal when Anthem took over. After his signing, he was never used on Impact.
