Backstage News on Kurt Angle’s TNA Future, How Many Talents Are Currently Signed to TNA?
– It’s no secret that many people believe Kurt Angle may be done with TNA as his contract will expire before he’s able to return from knee surgery. Also, TNA is not advertising Angle for their UK tour that begins in January 2015. There are people within TNA that say Angle is 100% gone when his deal is up.
– TNA had more than 60 performers under contract two years ago but now have just 33 signed, following the recent departures of Hernandez, Kazarian and Chris Sabin. Of those 33 signed, the only ones with any real money deal would be Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Bully Ray, Abyss, Samoa Joe, James Storm, Bobby Roode and Mr. Anderson. Anderson signed a new deal a while back and it’s believed he agreed to pay that is well below what he was making before.
