According to Wrestling Observer Radio, last night’s episode of TNA Impact was almost pulled due to a music rights problem. The company was able to edit DJZ and Mike Bennett’s entrance themes from the show prior to air, and the program was allowed to continue. It should be noted that this was not related to the lawsuit filed by Billy Corgan earlier this week.
Another real problem on the horizon for Impact Ventures, LLC is related to the ongoing pay issues. We’ve reported for years now that TNA has had trouble paying their talents, and apparently this weekend is a big pay period for the company. The story is that they were given money to pay for the recent Impact Wrestling tapings but there is no confirmation that they were given enough to pay talents. This would cause a breach of contracts, which would then make everyone a free agent. Dave Meltzer adds that some talents are prepared to declare themselves free agents and begin negotiating with other companies next week if they are not paid.
