The contract of former TNA World Heavyweight Champion and current TNA Tag Team Champion Bobby Roode recently expired, according to a report from Jason Powell of ProWrestling.Net, who note that this is the reason that Roode has not appeared on TNA Impact Wrestling television since the tapings in the United Kingdom.

According to the report, Roode was not spotted by fans at the TNA LockDown Fan Interaction event today, which will certainly raise some questions as to whether he will appear at TNA LockDown tomorrow night, as Austin Aries and himself are scheduled to defend the titles in a triple threat match against Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez, as well as the team of Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels & Kazarian).
