Bully Ray has been a staple on TNA programming over the past three years, ranging from top heel to, most recently, one of its top babyfaces. But now, it appears his time with the company is coming to a close.
PWInsider.com has reported Bully, real name Mark LoMonaco, has informed the TNA locker room his time with the organization has come to a close. According to the outlet, his contract with the company either is expiring or has just about expired, and the live event on Sunday in Hagerstown, M.D. is the final one he is set to work.
Other than TNA losing one of its top attractions with the move, it will also be losing its future Hall of Famer. Ray alongside his tag team partner Devon were scheduled to be interred into the TNA Hall of Fame at the upcoming “Bound For Glory” pay-per-view in October. It is unknown whether that will have an effect or not on what is ahead for him.
The 43-year-old was recently involved with a major angle in which he and Devon put TNA President Dixie Carter through a table. He also was a major part of a series of bouts in the pre-taped episodes of “Impact Wrestling,” leaving the company in a curious state in how they may have to write him out of storyline.
While no announcement has officially been made at this time, the report states multiple TNA talent have confirmed the departure.
Huge loss for TNA, if true. He is a guy who reinvented himself over the past few years, and has a lot to offer to any company he signs on with.
