On the April 19th edition of iMPACT!, Abyss was brutally beaten by Team Cage in the final segment. Abyss will be off TNA TV for four-to-five weeks as he sells the beating. He won’t be wrestling at the May 13th Sacrifice PPV. Upon his return, he will be a babyface without James Mitchell by his side. Abyss gave Mitchell’s the Black Hole Slam on iMPACT! before Team Cage assaulted him in the ring.
