Backstage News On TNA Releases, Why TNA Is Cutting Talent, TNA Stars Being Paid Late?

TNA talents cut so far are Crimson, Joey Ryan, Christian York, Taeler Hendrix and Madison Rayne.

As reported, 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.

    Why even have Gut Check if you are going to cut half of them? And why sign a contract to pay Gut Check winners a guarantee? If anything put an injury clause in the contract, that way you take out insurance policies on certain wrestlers.
