King touches on his departure. 

In late November, Kenny King’s time with IMPACT Wrestling came to an end. It had been reported by Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp that King requested and was granted his release from the company

He was with IMPACT for over a year in his latest run and became Digital Media Champion. While guest appearing on the Black Rasslin’ Podcast, King spoke about his departure. He enjoyed his time there but feels sometimes, it’s just time to go. 

As far as the future goes, King stated that he’s been having positive conversations about going ‘one way or the other’. 

I had a really good period of time with IMPACT Wrestling. I felt like we had some really good moments and I mean, you were talking about the Pit Fight. That was one of my favorite moments of all of last year and being able to work with Sheldon Jean… But sometimes it’s just time. Shout out and much respect to Scott (D’Amore) and Gail (Kim) and D’Lo (Brown) and Tommy (Dreamer) and everybody in the office and all of that and much luck to — Hard To Kill is gonna be here (in Las Vegas). I don’t know if I’m gonna be here next week to see Hard To Kill but, you know, shout out to TNA as they start their new endeavors but sometimes it’s just time. It’s just time. That’s really the long and short of it. Now I’m at a crux. I’m at a period of my career where it’s like, okay, well we could go this way or we could go that way and I’m having some really positive conversations about going one way or the other. So, I think for right now, you’ll see me just continuing to build the brand. I’ll be doing some indie dates and I’ll continue to build the brand until one of these conversations come to fruition or I got some other outside of wrestling things happening right now so, Kenny King always gonna keep it moving so…

King has tallied up 22 years in the wrestling business and has worked for Ring of Honor, IMPACT/TNA, PWG, New Japan Pro-Wrestling and CMLL.
