Default 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.

AJ Styles: $390,500 downside/receives a merchandise bonus - 3 year contract
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
Jeff Hardy: $728,450 downside/receives a merchandise bonus/travel paid for
Kazarian: $141,000 downside
Kurt Angle: $1,000,000 downside/receives a merchandise bonus/travel and accommodation paid for/maximum of 10 dates per month
Matt Morgan: $350,000 downside - 3 year contract (this is believed to be Morgan's previous contract)
Mr Anderson: $625,700 downside/receives a merchandise bonus
Rob Van Dam: $680,000 downside/receives a merchandise bonus/travel paid for
Samoa Joe: $400,000 downside/receives a merchandise bonus
Sting: $840,750 downside/receives a merchandise bonus/travel and accommodation paid for/maximum of 10 dates per month

Gail Kim: $150,000 downside/receives a merchandise bonus - 2 year contract
Madison Rayne: $77,400 downside - 2 year contract
Mickie James: $177,940 downside/receives a merchandise bonus/contract allows for flexibility with James' music career

If this is all accurate----Get rid of Hardy, Anderson, and RVD ASAP. Not even close to being worth what they are paid. They're getting paid twice the amount of those who have 10x more talent. Being ex-WWE means nothing if you can't draw anything, which obviously none of them do.

Hardy will make up for more than his contract through merchandise sales, agree with RVD and Anderson though.

RVD and Anderson absolute joke! Hardy too but at least he sells merch.

I can understand Hardy, but not RVD and Anderson. And even Hardy is a bit of a stretch.

LOL at WWE guys coming in making more money (some of them are useless fucks) while some of the more talented TNA guys make dirt shit.

Why the fuck do Matt Morgan and Abyss make so much. They both suck and contribute so little.

This is called a business for a reason. They might be wrestlers to all of you, but they really are BUSINESSMEN. Whoever makes the most money is a winner. Good for Hardy, Anderson, and RVD. If this report is true, most "wrestlers," as I have expected, are poor businessmen. As World Heavy Champion, Austin Aries makes less money than a knockout.

And you know, it's funny how some of you apparently know if the wrestlers pay for themselves or not.

No wonder WWE can never win with everyone because most are just looking for some super technical explanation on why something was not done right.

I'm sure this is a little outdated. I have a hard time believing the World Champion is one of the least paid guys on the roster. He more than likely got a pay raise.

-Angle isn't worth $1 million dollars anymore. He hasn't been for 4, 5 years. Cut his salary by $300,000-$400,000 and spread it between TNA guys like Storm, Roode, AJ, Daniels, Kaz, etc.
-Sting is a legend but he can easily be cut down by $100,000-$200,000. Spread that between TNA guys.
-Cut Anderson by $300,000 and spread it between TNA guys.
-Cut RVD by $200,000 and spread it between TNA guys.

Surprisingly I think Hardy's price is valid.
