TNA talent losing out as a result of double tapings

Quote:
TNA locker room morale is in rough shape as a result of the company's policy regarding the pay for the majority of wrestlers via the new television taping structure. With TNA running one live show and taping a second show every other Thursday, the majority of the talent will only be paid for a single appearance regardless of whether they work more than once each night. Thus, these wrestlers will be losing money compared to when Impact was taped on a weekly basis.

Powell's POV: This was discussed weeks ago in the member exclusive Dot Net Weekly audio show and has continued to become a major source of frustration in the locker room. One source estimated that this will affect roughly 80 percent of the talent in TNA, and added that wrestlers are anxious for their contracts to expire so they can negotiate to change the wording in their contracts. Technically, TNA is within their legal rights to play hardball on this point due to the wording of the contracts, but it does seem unfair that most talent will end up losing money even if they work more than once in the same night.

Re: TNA talent losing out as a result of double tapings

This is stupid. TNA needs to fix this ASAP. Their talent is their strongest asset(obviously) so they need to keep them happy. They do NOT need low locker room morale right now with Impact just hitting the road.

And I knew the double shows thing was going to be a problem. Either TNA needs to grow a pair and sell tickets for two different dates, i.e. tape next week's Impact at the same venue but as part of a separate show the next day or go live EVERY week.


Wrestling is a helluva drug.

Dot Net isn't a dirtsheet.

You probably didn't read that this was reported weeks ago, right?

Re: TNA talent losing out as a result of double tapings

Doesnt seem unrealistic too be honest. Most likely they get paid PER appearance or night, so it doesnt matter if its 2 hours or 4 hours. Same pay. Which is why you end up losing money when they lose a taping date.

But hopefully TNA adds a extra house show or something the taping free week to make up for it.

I swear dirtsheets reported that the lockerroom were joyous with the going on the road news?

What if WCW won the Monday Night Wars?

Here's what I think would have happened: http://inthesquaredcircle.blogspot.c...ight-wars.html

Re: TNA talent losing out as a result of double tapings

They haven't even been paid for this new taping schedule yet, but they're already being underpaid?

Makes sense....

Re: TNA talent losing out as a result of double tapings

Yet almost everyone on the roster now has proper contacts that are not Pay per appearance. Could be true for a few younger new guys. How is that the lockerroom ? God its just to easy for reporters to make articles look so much worse coming off of this Train that will not stop.

Re: TNA talent losing out as a result of double tapings

I've read worse "morale is low" stories. Makes sense though, especially for those who are signed to PPA (pay-per-appearance) deals.
