Backstage News on Sorensen’s Departure, Spike Pleased with Ratings

Posted by Matt Boone July 24, 2013 6 Comments

- 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.

      You know who else gets paid higher than Sorensen…HOGAN!!!

    • Not Chris Jericho

      The guy can’t wrestle anymore thanks to an injury he suffered in a TNA ring. Thats just cold blooded to release him like this. I’m calling it. TNA will enter bankruptcy by Christmas.

    • Kage

      Well, that’s what he gets for nearly getting himself killed for the company.
      Nice move, TNA, veeerrryy nice…

      Maybe this will show everyone working there that dedication and loyalty mean nothing to TNA, not even someone who nearly killed himself for their shitty brand.

      Stay classy TNA.
