Breaking News: Two Top TNA Talents Gone

Many have been questioning whether or not Mickie James and Ken Anderson will be remaining with TNA Impact Wrestling, now that their contracts with the company have expired.

TNA has pulled both the Mickie James and Ken Anderson profiles from their official website, and according to one source, both talents are now gone from the company.

We should have more on this story later tonight, or early Tuesday morning.

    That sucks that Anderson’s gone.

  3. jp says:

    High salaries, I’m sure. However, Mickie’s heel character she just recently started doing, was fantastic. As for Anderson, no big loss. I never disliked him as much as a lot of others do. But no big loss there

    • Leg Drop Jobber says:

      I agree. I liked Anderson, but it seemed TNA gave up on him after a while. It was like Mickey was just starting to kick into high gear.

    • PennyAnd1 says:

      Losing Anderson is no big loss? Are you freakin' kidding me? Anderson is the most believable bad guy there is in wrestling. He's so good at it, you almost believe him. At the same time, his mic skill is second to none. They should make him into a psycho type of wrestler. TNA just lost a good investment in Anderson.

      • Philly_Cheese says:

        Anderson is one of the most believable people on the mic, that's definitely true. Although I can't agree with him being a psycho type of wrestler at all. They should've let him go overboard with the "asshole" gimmick like he did in the Indys. What we saw him do in TNA was only the tip of the iceberg on that one… It was that gimmick alone and the way he pulled it off that gathered so much attention from WWE to begin with.

        • PennyAnd1 says:

          Well I don't know much of Anderson's past. All I know is that he could probably make a bigger name of himself if he was more psychotic, just because of the way he can change the tone of his voice.

  4. Reeltalk says:

    This could be part of a storyline but you never know. But if turns out to be true then that’s a shame

  5. Grandiose7 says:

    Definitely a positive in one aspect for tna, opens up lots of cap space. MJ, seemed more focused on things outside of tna, it's better this way that she is put in a position behind scenes, also as many don't know she's getting older. As for Anderson i'm split, he has pretty great charisma and for the most part puts on great matches, but he has come off stale to me the last year or so and have questioned what they would do with him prior to A & 8. TNA better just make sure they do the right thing and get some solid talent.

    • Dante_Cross says:

      What do you mean "as many don't know she's getting older"?

      Like what, did you assume we all thought she got younger every year?

      • hangers says:

        I thought she was Benjamin Buttons sister…

      • Grandiose7 says:

        There's a certain point where age becomes a lot more of a factor. She's much older then many people suspect is all; especially for women as their bones tend to lose muscle strength sooner. Glad that's the brunt of what you took though.

  6. Stunner says:

    I can’t lie I’m going to miss them both Mickie’s heel in the KOs was really neded and she’s good in the ring and on the mic. Mr.Anderson is Awesome on the mic I mean the guy is so funny it’s crazy, needless to say I for one and going to miss them both. TNA really needs to beef up the X-Division as well as the KOs ASAP!

  7. andy3323 says:

    I thought they were already technically gone and their contracts were running out/had run out. Not really BREAKING news…..

  8. DigestivBiscuit says:

    This site nearly shocked me. " Breaking News: Two Top TNA Talents Gone"

  9. Euphoria says:

    Mickie James I can understand as she perhaps wants to persue country more. But Anderson? For the love of god hope he does not go to wwe. Mr butthole naw too extreme. Mr poopy head. Well I hope to see former talent as AJ mentioned Lo Ki and company. Would be cool to see them back. But if tns also fixed the ko division got back some solid talent. Get solid new talent all will be well. The KO in its best days gandered lots of tv attention.

  10. JoeWrestling says:

    AJ Styles contract is up too, brother. They save money by letting the contract run out, then goading them to show up and fight on the show anyway for free. See it all the time, brother. AJ will be surprised when he wrestles for free, wins the title, tries to hold the company hostage. Then Dixie will just say, keep the belt, who cares.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      and a month later VKM buys TNA…

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      Uh no… TNA has picked up an extension on AJ's contract for another 3 months, which goes well into December. The only reason AJ hasn't signed a long-term contract is because there's some issues with him getting pay increases every year, and he doesn't want to be locked into a fixed amount for the next 3 to 5 years.

  11. Peckar says:

    Better be a work, otherwise somebody needs a good ***** slap. Two stars who are totally over on their own accord, who makes these stupid decisions? Don't worry, we have Garrett bowling through the ranks. Next biggest thing, right Hogan? Fuk.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      Mickie leaving was yet another huge blow to the KO division which is pretty much dead at this point. I can't for the life of me figure out why they let go of Anderson, when he's one of the best talents they have. Unfortunately I think at B4G you'll see the total breakdown of A&8s, which will be something they do to cost Bully the title, putting AJ as champion. More than likely there will be a feud that'll go on between AJ and Dixie, in which she has a hand picked "champion" who she thinks is better. Magnus will probably be the person that Dixie wants the title on, given his recent pushes it would make sense. His weak on Mic skills can be fixed by having Dixie talk for him, in sort of a manager role, it also might help the fact that he has a very bland character and gimmick.

      • Peckar says:

        Anderson is entertainment through and through. Magnus needs to go back to his London Brawling charcter, then he nailed it. Dixie isn't flash on the mic so that won't work. Imentioned a storyline about a year ago with AJ, Daniels, Kaz etc taking back the company from Hogan and co, made sense then and now would be even better if she is planning on giving HH the flick, Lost viewers would tune in for that I am sure.

  12. RealCreative says:

    Look this is just bullshit…..why are all these talents being dropped…I know its due to costs etc on the road but im SICK of seeing ppl complain about the impact zone and beggin to go on the road NOW saying its best they stay in one location…….WTF

    Im easy about it but on the road does give the product a better look and feel than what the impact zone did anyway…on that note we cant compare TNA to WWE simply due to the fact that WWE was founded in 1952 & TNA 2002………


    Fresh faces, good marketing and getting back to business with creative and wrestling…what i caught about TNA over WWE is the wrestling was more hardcore…more blood, more high risk…noow with Hogan & Eric its been watered down….

    • DirkB says:

      Did you miss the shows with the dead IZ crowds? It was painful, they didn't care until Hardy or Hogan made an appearance. Being on the road is what's costing TNA all these wrestlers, they're much stricter with their budget these days, being on the road looks great but if it's going to put the company out of business then it's hardly worth it.

      Hardcore and blood were affected by more than Hogan and Bischoff, wrestling is very aware of concussions and blood in TNA is limited since what happened with Wolfe/McGuinness.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      ahh..I're one of those that thinks "hardcore blood and high risk" make it better…dumbasss

      • Peckar says:

        He is aloud to give his opinion on what he likes to watch. We aren't all carbon copies of one another you know. Just because it doesn't float your boat. Fact is, when wrestling was at its peak, these were main-stay ingredients, whether you like them or not.

      • Leg Drop Jobber says:

        There are ways to book a "hardcore like match" without blood and "working safe." I dig the hardcore stuff, but I don't necessarily think good workers need to "kill themselves" to get the point across.

  13. Mr. Excitement says:

    I couldn't stand Mickie. But really enjoyed her recent heel gimmick. Sad to see it end.

    Loved Anderson feuding against Bully. Wish that feud went longer.

  14. TNA_fan says:

    Relax guys, TNA is trying to save money and maybe they will bring Anderson, MJ back later down the road.. If not they could always find new talents and new story lines..

    • tna24 says:

      cant really relax when you have the knockouts who were already small, just get much smaller. went from 6 knockouts to now just 5

      • Grandiose7 says:

        Awesome Kong may come back, Madison rose will be back after she's recouped from child birth, and tna will more then likely bring a new female face in the next 6 months, it's been a long time since a quality female face.

        • Bigmike885 says:

          Kongs not coming back..if she goes back to major wrestling it'll be to WWE..she asked to be let go to deal with personal stuff..they had big things planned for her.

  15. Sturk says:

    Mr. Kennedy had some much intensity with his last storyline with Bully. Loved his storyline with Angle but other than that, I never enjoyed him even in WWE. Mickie James is a great female wrestler and a future hall of famer. But TNA's roster needed freshening a bit. I love that spots are open and i'm going to enjoy seeing who actually steps up. Can't wait to see new talents as well.

    • UK TNA says:

      Bad move losing Anderson, was just getting interesting. Aces n 8’s r finished now they haven’t got anyone good and bully will lose title to AJ, that’s obvious.

      TNA is going downhill now knockouts r almost nonexistent, x-div is poor and TV title has been turned into a 2nd rate joke. These mms guys r waste of time and money they don’t want to b in TNA they just want to promote there fight in bellator, it’s all they ever go on about.

  16. purpleurkel says:

    As long as the X-division comes back, i will be happy.

    (maybe AJ's speech which bashed Dixie for dismantling the XD was a sign of it being revived….he even name-dropped lo-ki, Petey, and others)
