Reportedly, his reason for leaving is Impact will be using local referees during their time in Canada for Sunday’s Bound for Glory PPV and the TV tapings shortly after. As noted, three other Referees have already left the company: Robert King, Brian Stiffler, and Earl’s son, Brian Hebner. All three made announcements via their respective Twitter accounts over the past few days.
