Re: Recent TNA Contract Details
Hello everybody. Our very informative friend, back at the other forum in which I am a member, has come through with the goods again! Below is a copy of the post we recieved. His message is in bold.
Hey guys. My pal got a hold of some TNA info!
Note 1: There was no information received for the likes of Hulk Hogan, Dixie Carter, Bischoff, and Jeff Jarrett. We have to assume that their contracts are tied up in the corporate end, and not through the system that pays performers.
Note 2: Very few TNA performers get generous "WWE style" perks such as first class travel and hotel comps.
Note 3: TNA do recieve merchandise cut bonuses, these are noted where applicable, although exact figures were not made available to us.
Note 4: As you will observe, TNA downsides are MUCH lower than WWE downsides.
Note 5: Kurt Angle and Sting both have contracts wherein, they are only required to work a certain amount of dates per month.
Abyss: $344,280 downside - 2 year contract
Austin Aries: $145,310 downside - 2 year contract
Bobby Roode: $275,000 downside - 3 year contract
Bully Ray: $305,200 downside - 3 year contract (this is believed to be his previous contract which expired last month)
Chris Sabin: $144,500 downside/receives a merchandise bonus - 2 year contract
Christopher Daniels: $183,000 downside - 2 year contract
Hernandez: $174,220 downside/receives a merchandise bonus - 3 year contract
James Storm: $268,470 downside/receives a merchandise bonus - 3 year contract
Kazarian: $141,000 downside
Matt Morgan: $350,000 downside - 3 year contract (this is believed to be Morgan's previous contract)
Matt Morgan gets more money than all of these names above. Besides his new contract should be even better. Fuck this company, what did Matt Morgan ever did to recieve such a salary ? He does not draw, he is not interesting, it has been tried 344393489 times to reinvent him so that he becomes credible and over, still isn't.
At this rate TNA really deserves to go bankrupt.
