Yesterday, Fightful Select had a big update on IMPACT Wrestling star Lady Frost fighting to get a release from the company and that she recently sent a letter to Impact and Anthem executives arguing her points and requesting once again, that she be released.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that in speaking to several sources at IMPACT Wrestling last night and today, this is their version of the timeline of events:
*Frost had been booked on all events on a per appearance basis until she informed them she was taking time off for a surgery. She was and is not on an exclusive deal and can wrestle anywhere she wants, except for other nationally televised promotions.
*Whenever she traveled for the company, IMPACT sources claimed Frost’s flights, hotel, etc. were covered. Obviously, whoever holds the receipts for that will have the proof.
*In regard to Frost working in Dallas, that would have been a situation where Frost (like other talents) worked for a number of groups since it was Wrestlemania weekend. Frost did work at least one other event that weekend for Zelo Pro Wrestling and also would have appeared at Wrestlecon. IMPACT sources state that she informed them she would be in Dallas for the weekend, so she was utilized on the Multiverse of Matches event. Their basic claim is that they did not approach her to book her that weekend, but that she informed them she would be there, so she was included on the event.
*Frost informed the company after healing from her surgery that she was good to go and requested to return around Slammiversary. IMPACT sources stated that since their TV and PPV plans were already locked in, they intended to work Frost back in as they were able to.
*Shortly after Frost was informed of this, IMPACT sources claimed that she instead requested a release from the company. One IMPACT source states that Frost was told she could have a full release after she returned to TV to put over Masha Slamovich as a way to build Masha and write Frost out, the same way others (Tenille Dashwood, Madison Rayne) have also done. Sources stated that Frost was unable to make the suggested TV taping date, so the promotion asked her to let them know when she could make a future taping, gave her several choices as to when she could do the job.
*Shortly after, Frost went public with her release announcement on Twitter.
*IMPACT sources claim that from that point on, they had not heard from Frost until she contacted the company’s Human Resources department. IMPACT’s version is that Frost was told to go back to her contact person (we are told Gail Kim) and to have conversations with them.
*IMPACT had not heard from Frost after that until her letter to IMPACT and Anthem was received. Impact sources declined to comment on the letter, with one source stating they had not actually seen it, but had heard of its existence.
So, that’s the IMPACT Wrestling side of the story.
