Pretty much what we said should happen then.

 

If a idea gets thrown out there and nobody hears it, did it happen?

 

Yes. Yes it did. MAXX. STOP SENDING OUR IDEAS TO TNA, WWE AND ROH YOU F*CK.

 

EDIT: Joey Ryan has been shitcanned too.

 

EDIT: Christian York was shitcanned too. And Taeler Hendrix refused to sign a new contract. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! (That's the sound of TNA going down the tubes.)

 

EDIT: Sam Shaw and Crimson now shitcanned too. It's Gray Wednesday! It would be black, but nobody gives the slightest f*ck about TNA.

Neither of them are any big loss. Although, quite an amazing turn-around for Crimson...

Putting this all here as there's a lot of news

 

According to ProWrestling.net, sources with TNA have said the company was, and still may be several weeks behind on paying some of its workers. The report indicates that a "prominent former TNA champion" is saying they were, at one point, six weeks behind on payroll.

 

 

So far today, the following names have been released from TNA:

 

Joey Ryan

Madison Rayne

Crimson

Christian York

Taeler Hendrix

 

According to PWInsider.com, the releases were made as a cost cutting measure in TNA, and the above names 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.

 

As we previously reported, several TNA talents have been grumbling lately about being paid late, with one source noting that some talent have complained about being paid up to two months late.

 

 

Sources have informed WZ of some behind the scenes news and chaos at TNA Impact wrestling.

 

We've been told Christian York got released Tuesday and Taeler Hendrix did not sign a new contract to stay with the company. More departures are expected soon that vary from cuts or talents requesting their release.

 

The relationship with OVW as a training center seems to be "in shambles" as one source described it. Problems have came up particularly with former head trainer Rip Rodgers concerning money.

 

It seems many internally are questioning TNA's direction and if they know what they're doing or want to do. In addition, sources are saying Al Snow, who is working as a road agent for the company, has been making promises to wrestlers which he can't fulfill because he doesn't have the power that he acts like he has.

 

According to a direct source in OVW, TNA/OVW trainee Rip Rogers was reportedly trying to extort money from the company. We were told he wanted to get paid from the trainees for their instruction in the advanced class. So, the talent was relegated to the Intermediate class and away from Rip.

 

These TNA "refugees" were basically winners on Gut Check first and then told about going to OVW. WZ was told this is probably why Adam Pearce didn't "win" because he wasn't going to take the OVW assignment.

 

Additionally, we reported earlier that today's talent releases were mostly a cost cutting measure, and in an update on Doug Williams, who was also recently released from TNA, WZ was told "Why wouldn't TNA pay Doug Williams when they promised him a job as trainer? Because they didn't want to pay to renew his visa."

 

That's all the latest. It looks like development has went to hell and the cost of being on the road is hitting hard

Yeah this TNA going out of business shit crops up all the time, but the only thing that matters is Spike TV. As long as they want it, its going to be around, end of story. The second Spike loses interest, which isnt going to be any time soon if you believe what Meltzer says (and its probably best to believe what he says), they will go bye bye.

 

Spike love having Hulk Hogan on their network. Scoff at it all you want, thats a fact. TNA also deliver ratings above the station average and give them 52 weeks of first run programming every year.

 

Spike, as of now, arent losing interest in TNA so TNA are safe.

No, but people are actually believing that she said she wanted out, just because they fired her she said she wanted out on Twitter. "Thats the sound of TNA going out of business" or whatever was said above, because such an insignificant nobody like this bird asked her her release. (Which she didnt).

 

Look, when people engage fanboy mode against either TNA or WWE, logic, common sense and any sense of shame seem to go out the window, so lets look at the facts and engage our brains:

 

1. Shes a nobody.

2. WWE arent after her.

3. She was getting a weekly paycheque to wrestle and sometimes appear on TV, so she had pay stability.

4. She was happy to be there until the exact time TNA started firing people, and THATS when she asked to be cut...right? Please. Coincidence? I dont think so.

 

I have to laugh, TNA makes roster cuts and trims a bunch of the fat and the anti-TNA brigade are out in force saying "Oh, they are in trouble, out of business, down the tubes!" yet when WWE make their yearly cull, the exact samme fanboys are either deathly quiet or saying "Yeah, WWE are doing a good thing getting rid of these guys!"

 

Show some f*cking pride in yourself fanboys, you have no credibility when you say one thing for one and something different for another when its the same situation.

Well to be fair, you also need to use some common sense in comparing the two.

 

WWE doesn't fire people every year because they are losing so much money that they are weeks behind on payroll and need to cut costs. TNA, apparently, are doing just that. TNA are also completely reliant on Spike TV and Dixie's money for their continued existence, which is why the people on the money end getting worried about TNA's losses are a worry for them, since that is 50% of what is keeping them alive.

 

I don't believe that they are in any danger of going out of business tomorrow either, but there is a reason why this specific event is being taken more seriously than if WWE released half a dozen Superstars jobbers tomorrow. They aren't the exact same situation at all.

You do realize that even if WWE aren't after her, she would make more money on the independents than she ever would have in TNA, right? TNA the same company who paid their (at the time) Knockouts Champion so little, that she had to work a second job at Sunglass Hut. TNA the same company who had one of their contracted wrestlers mention on twitter that he was now eligible for food stamps.
