Last Friday, September 23 at Victory Road, Bobby Fish made his Impact Wrestling debut, surprising several fans of the federation. Regarding his arrival, several reports have surfaced in the last few hours about how much time he may have in the company.
The former WWE and AEW star became a free agent after leaving Tony Khan's court in late August. Bobby Fish's most sought-after destination was supposed to be returning to WWE, but it didn't. In fact, he joined Impact Wrestling during the event aired on IMPACT Plus.
Bobby Fish has not signed with IMPACT
According to PWInsider colleagues, Bobby Fish is still a free agent since he hasn't officially signed any kind of deal with the company despite the latest appearance. The same source revealed that he will be working on the pay-per-view Bound For Glory on October 7, as well as subsequent TV recordings of Impact Wrestling but without being tied to any contracts.
Bobby Fish spent a full four years in WWE as a member of the Undisputed Era with Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly and Roderick Strong. He was a two-time NXT Duo Champion and was also awarded twice as NXT's Best Tag Team of the Year.
He joined All Elite Wrestling last October, after his release with WWE, effectively recomposing the Undisputed Era with Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly. Several rumors have circulated since his departure from AEW. Among these was the fact that he would have left AEW because of CM Punk while another news that emerged is the fact that Bobby Fish would have tried to convince Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly to return to WWE.
Unconfirmed rumors, indeed the latest has also been denied by some AEW sources while others close to WWE have claimed the Stamford company has never contacted Bobby Fish. At the moment, therefore, there does not seem to be a return to WWE of the Undisputed Era.
Despite this, however, in this historical period anything can happen and things can change quickly. Jim Cornette has given his thoughts on Bobby Fish potentially returning to WWE under Triple H's leadership. "I think he should (on Triple H hiring Bobby Fish).
Here's the thing, at this point, Fish was an important part of that group (Undisputed Elite). Fish is not gonna be a star on his own. He's an excellent worker, he's a trained athlete, and he could be an asset in a wrestling promotion either with his experience as a trainer or as a talent on the card because there's obviously not that many experienced talented workers around these days," said Cornette.
