According to a new report by SE Scoops and PW Torch, TNA is months behind on paying the production crew.
“PWTorch.com reports that TNA is currently behind on pay with their production crew, with some workers being owed money from as far back as March and January.
“There’s belief within the company that Aroluxe Marketing has been loaning TNA money so they could continue taping Impact Wrestling. PWTorch.com claims some TNA production staff have been told they will be replaced at next month’s taping.”
To make matters worse, PWTorch is reporting that production staff will be replaced on the next set of tapings, which will be held in June. Saturday’s replay on Pop TV was cancelled. TNA is also looking for a new investor, but Carter wants to remain the majority owner. While that may not be the best move for TNA, Carter is intent on keeping control. Is this truly high morale?
In multiple tweets by TNA employees, high morale is still being held in the locker room.
On the other hand, with production workers needing pay and wrestlers leaving one-by-one, it isn’t a great place to be. Needless to say, ratings aren’t improving. After Austin Aries left Impact Wrestling, he talked about why it wasn’t succeeding and told the absolute truth.
“It always goes back to the ownership group. At the end of the day, you can change coaches and managers and players, but if there’s something intrinsic, something wrong, then you have to look at what the common denominator is, and, usually, you’ve got to look at the ownership because everything runs from there.”
Where does TNA go from here? The morale can only go so high before the facade is dropped completely. With more tapings to be done in June and production rumored to be let go, that doesn’t help any case to get better. Dixie Carter should do the best thing for the company and give up majority ownership of TNA. When that happens, true ownership can take over and try to fix TNA.
That, or end their demise abruptly.
