A true friend stabs you in the front
Figured since Dixie has pulled TNA up outta the casket once again that it's high time there was a thread for any news or general discussion that is not part of the weekly Impact thread.
According to the Wrestling Observer, TNA is signing talent to guaranteed contracts and farming them out to independent promotions for booking fees. The wrestlers get regular paychecks every two weeks, and the extra dates are considered part of their guaranteed deals. Since TNA is not running any live events, the idea is to increase demand for their talent so they can recoup a good portion of their contract via these outside bookings.
