Palumbo Comments On Low TNA Wages, TNA Interested In Zorro



– Former WWE talent Chuck Palumbo took to Twitter to note that the average TNA mid-card wrestler makes less than $500 per match not to mention that they have to cover their own hotel expenses and health insurance.

He wrote: “Two fans asked me how much a wrestler makes over at TNA today, when I told them the “average mid carder” is makin less than 500 a match…no hotels …..they couldn’t believe it.. That’s before taxes and expenses and paying your own health insurance…. They were like holy****, we better stay in school.. I said “good idea.”

“That’s not a knock on the boys….I respect their passion….the wrestling companies take advantage of their passion! Any company outside of wrestling would love to have workers with the desire work ethic and passion of a wrestler.. The ones that do ….care about their employees and give them benefits etc..bonuses too.”

— TNA Wrestling officials are once again negotiating with Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) regarding utilizing Zorro.
