According to Dave Herro, co-host of the Pro Wrestling Report, TNA owed Bobby Roode and Eric Young a combined six-figures. Roode and Young both recently debuted on NXT and clearly that was the best business decision. It doesn't make sense to me why anyone would invest in TNA wrestling. It has bounced from Spike, to Destination America and now resides on Pop TV. Who knows how long that relationship will last before the network decides to pull the plug.
Dixie Carter and company have moved TNA headquarters into quite literally a warehouse. Their champions are WWE castoffs. Every new star they are building is probably desperate to get out of there. Even if working for the WWE in the NXT brand pays less, at least you know you are going to get a paycheck. TNA is in a bad way right now and they've pretty much squandered every chance they had to be relevant. Bringing in Hogan and Bischoff turned out to be a disaster. Putting Dixie Carter on TV all the time was nauseating. I wan't wrestling companies to succeed and for their to be more options not just for fans to watch, but for wrestlers to find work. However, TNA has been for a long time and nobody wants to pull the plug. When they can't afford electricity that decision will be taken out of their hands.
