Backstage News on Sorensen’s Departure, Spike Pleased with Ratings
– TNA released Jesse Sorensen because they felt he was being paid well above the salary that anyone else working as a production assistant would have been making. There’s a feeling that releasing Sorensen was a bad move on the surface but it reinforces their decision that they will cut anyone at anytime, no matter who it is.
– Several Spike TV executives were in attendance at the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings last week. Spike is pleased with the ratings that TNA has been generating lately and they feel TNA’s draw helps their overall primetime average, and allows them to sell primetime advertising at a higher rate.
