TNA releases continue with Jesse Sorensen

Jesse Sorensen

TNA has continued to trim their roster, the latest release being former X Division standout Jesse Sorensen.

Sorensen confirmed this departure on his Twitter account (@JessySorensen), stating the following: "I have officially been released by @IMPACTWRESTLING. Would like to say thank you to my supportive family, friends & fans."

This news is rather surprising to some, as Sorensen was working behind the scenes for the company after suffering a C-1 vertebrae fracture against Zema Ion in a TNA X Division number one contender's bout at TNA Against All Odds in February 2012. Sorensen was last seen on television at TNA Destination X in July of last year, promising to return to take the X Division strap, hoping that the then-vacant belt would be worn by Ion. His last TNA appearance was in March on the webshow The List, featuring Robbie E and So Cal Val.

This release marks the latest in a slew of departures, including Joey Ryan, Crimson, Christian York, Taeler Hendrix, Tara, Madison Rayne, Matt Morgan, D.O.C., D'Lo Brown, Bruce Prichard, and other backstage personnel.

The release ends a brief run in TNA for the young Sorensen, who debuted for the organization in July of 2011 and officially signed that August. During his stint in the company, Sorensen saw a few shots at the TNA X Division Champion Austin Aries, but came up short.

TNA has made no official comment on the release at this time.

Stay tuned for more TNA roster news from SLAM! Wrestling.
