Shaw Not Released by TNA, Update on Others, TNA Paying Late?

Posted by Matt Boone July 3, 2013 2 Comments

- In a correction from earlier, Sam Shaw has not been released by TNA. The talents cut so far are Crimson, Joey Ryan, Christian York, Taeler Hendrix and Madison Rayne.

As noted, these cuts are due to cost cutting measures. These talents were being paid a monthly guarantee with an additional fee when they were booked for events. TNA officials felt those cut were not being used regularly so there was no need to keep them under contract.

There has been a lot of talk about cost cutting ever since TNA decided to go on the road with Impact Wrestling. Some wrestlers have been grumbling about being paid late. One talent says he has heard stories of co-workers being paid two months late.

      Pther sites are reporting some talents are up to 6 months late on pay. This is horrible news not just for tna but all of wrestling, looks like they went on the road too early and with Vinve javing brought the impact zone they don’t even have the fail safe option of returning! Would hate to see it but TNA could be gone inside a year they really need to cut the real dead weight like Hogan, Brooke etc!

      yeah the bollea’s get paid so much money that there isn’t any money for the actual talent who is doing all the wrestling work. I actually like Christian York and crimson
      and crimson being my favorite im shocked that he got cut he was very good
      but I knew it was coming because I haven’t seen him in months and months.
      I give tna two more years …
