Bronson Reed Reveals Immigration Issues Have Delayed Wrestling Return

Reed was rumoured to be joining IMPACT Wrestling

The former Bronson Reed has revealed that issues with visas and immigration have delayed him from making his return to wrestling.

Jonah, who went by the name Bronson Reed in WWE, was released from the promotion in August and has heavily been linked with a switch to IMPACT Wrestling.

Reports indicated that the former NXT North American Champion was going to debut for the promotion at the Bound For Glory pay-per-view last month, and Reed has now revealed that getting his status confirmed with the immigration department temporarily halted his return. 

Speaking to the Wrestling Inc. Daily, Reedsaid: "Well, I’m not at liberty to say exactly what’s going to happen, but I am at the moment, this week, getting everything confirmed with immigration, so everything should be good to go, wherever I do go. 

"But basically, I feel like the last few years exposed me to the rest of the world. People got to see what Bronson Reed had to offer but not really what JONAH had to offer. I was very much set in a mold of what WWE wanted me to be, so going forward, it’s more what I myself want to be as JONAH. So I’m looking to have some pretty cool matches and fun matches, a little different to what I did in WWE."

Speaking further on the VISA process, he continued: "It’s a complete nightmare. That’s how it works, but no issues. Everything’s pretty much set in stone now. I have a great set of lawyers, actually, helping me out.

"As of next week, things should be set in stone for me to be able to work places. I’m not gonna say anything, but I think November, you’ll get to see JONAH around some places."

When asked outright if plans involved him debuting for IMPACT at Bound For Glory, Jonah simply responded: "“At the moment, it’s everything to do with immigration, so I’m not able, legally, to do anything wrestling wise until all my immigration is sorted, but it should be sorted very soon, and I’m very happy about that."
