According to PWInsider, there was a backstage meeting before last Wednesday night’s Impact tapings in Orlando. The meeting was said to be very positive as talents were given a chance to ask officials any questions they had about what the company has planned for them and the company as a whole moving forward. There was also a very positive vibe during and after the tapings.
It was said that Sonjay Dutt was unable to fly to Orlando for last Wednesday night’s tapings as he recently underwent ankle surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon. According to PWInsider, Tommy Dreamer replaced Dutt and worked the tapings as the Producer.
Below is a tweet sent by Sonjay Dutt on missing the tapings:
Thanks to everyone checking in. Surgery went perfect last week! Unfortunately, doctor will not clear me to fly. Sadly, I won’t make it to @IMPACTWRESTLING this week. It pains me so much to not be there, but I know everyone will kill it!
