Report on TNA policy change and independent bookings

Sep 27, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck

– is reporting that TNA is now preventing its talent from
appearing for other independent promotions if they will be taped for
Internet pay-per-view or if they are set for a DVD release. Most of the
TNA wrestlers were allowed to be booked for other promotions, giving them
an opportunity to earn extra money when they are not touring or needed by
TNA. This new rule will halt most of the bookings as most indy shows do
sell their shows on DVD to help generate revenue. Indy promotion NSPW was
supposed to have Chavo Guerrero on an upcoming show but he had to be
dropped due to the new TNA policy. Guerrero blamed NSPW for “not honoring
their contract,” saying that they decided to film and sell the show on DVD
which “was never discussed.” The promotion fired back saying that
Guerrero’s claims are incorrect as they always sell DVDs of their shows
and this was never an issue with any of previous guests. “NSPW doesn’t
hold anything against Mr Guerrero and wishes him nothing but the best with
TNA Wrestling,” the promotion said in a statement.
