Instead of paying AJ 300k-400k a year, you can hear like 10 indie nobodies. Guys like Shaw, EC3, Bromans, Spud, Dewey Barnes, Nerv Fernum, and other average indie dudes who are willing to be paid cheap because they'll get to be on TV and they won't be able to be paid more because they aren't what indie diehard fans wants. Now instead of paying a dozen guys 6 figures, you can hire 40 dude who'll accept less than minimum wage. This is what's best for TNA's financial situation.
boy am i glad your not making any decisions for tna. if tna got rid of all of those guys you mentioned , tna would be finished within months. nobody is tuning in to watch a bunch of nobodies they never heard of just because their cheaper. thats asinine. what you do is bring in guys while the established names are still there, so they get built up in the meantime so when the time comes that the tna originals leave , tna has a new batch of stars ready to replace them .
back to the op....of course tna needs to sign new talent , but the 1st thing they need to do is bring back the wrestlers who have disappeared like kenny king, manik, jay bradley , and even rob terry who has improved this past year in ovw and that would be a big help . you add those guys to zema ion, ec3, sam shaw ,spud and the roster feels a lot more fresh . and the thing is they dont have to sign any of them, their all under contract which boggles my mind even further as to why their not being used .
the second thing tna needs to do is get rid of the dead weight. everyone has their own opinion as to who they dont like and think is dead weight but for me the guys who should be fired are...bischoff, brisco, knux , chavo, hernandez , taz, king mo , and dixie fuckbuddy sting (who is wayyyy overapid and useless )
take all the money you saved , plus the $$ from hogan/bischoff/devon/tara/rvd/mickie james ...and the $ saved from going off the road and THEN go sign some or at least try to sign some of the top indy talent out there .
its not rocket science, but dixie and co. just cant grasp ow to rebuild and refresh your roster.
