Re: TNA Changes Policy Regarding Talent Working Indy Shows

This is a statement Nick Jackson of The Young Bucks/Generation Me made in early July 2012 in an interview with Wrestling Revealed:

I just had a baby girl, so
that was a big reason because
now she's my number one
priority, and where ever I can
work for money I'll go there.
But now TNA has guaranteed
contracts or that's what we
have heard, but if we had a
guarantee we would have

TNA used to have pay-per-appearance deals for their mid-card and undercard, but that's changed since then and they have guaranteed downside contracts with performance bonuses like WWE. TNA are now trying for their talent to become more exclusive I guess, but appearances on Indy shows should only help the mid/lower card talent as they get to put their name out there. TNA should have tried to make it work with the Indy promoters, because it would be win-win for everyone involved. I guess this is one of the changes that has happened under the Prichard regime.
