- Impact had two significant staff departures this week - Live Events Manager Rafael Morfi and Director & Producer Dave Sahadi. PWInsider reports that Morfi's departure came after he and Anthem were unable to come to terms on a new financial agreement. Morfi has worked for WWE in the past and continues to work with others such as WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross and House of Hardcore.
Sahadi, who also worked for WWE in the past, came to the company in March 2006 and it was seen as a major hire for TNA. He's worked as a Director & Producer but was let go this week. His departure was described as the latest cost-cutting move by Anthem. Sahadi was considered to be a really talented Director.
Morfi tweeted the following on his departure this week:
My current business arrangement w/ @IMPACTWRESTLING is over as of today. Will be focusing more time w/ my other clients in the industry.— Rafael Morffi (@rmorfnyc) December 12, 2017
