More On Frankie Kazarian Leaving TNA

As previously reported, Frankie Kazarian is officially gone from TNA with his last commitments having been finished during the weekend Impact tapings. According to sources, the release was due to the company’s financial cutbacks.

The report notes that Kaz was making more than TNA wanted to pay him, with the company thinking they could afford two younger talent for the same cost. As we reported today, financial problems have continued to be a thorn in TNA’s side with the production crew nearly walking out over pay problems.

ORIGINAL: According to one source, there were major financial concerns among the production crew at this past week’s TNA Impact Wrestling television tapings in Orlando, Florida.

Apparently many within the production crew were upset about the company being behind on their pay, and as a result, they claimed that if they weren’t caught up on pay by a certain point, they were going to collectively walk out in the middle of the tapings.

The threats from the production crew were apparently made clear to TNA management, as checks were issued to the crew and the situation ended up getting resolved. Prior to that happening, however, there was said to be a 24-hour period where there was a lot of tension backstage.

    I hope all of the stars tna is letting go end up signing with Jeff Jerrett’s promotion.

      If TNA can't afford him what makes you think Saint Jeff can?

      • rvdrvd says:

        It doesn't matter if JJ can afford them, his partner, Toby Keith, is worth over 500 million dollars. I think he could probably afford them.

  2. Roid Master says:

    This just in…he's still leaving!

  3. MRPC says:

    If John Guburick can bring in 2 'EC3' level talents for the price of 1 Frankie Kazarian then fair enough. You have to cut your cloth accordingly.

    talent come and go it sucks to see guys like him leave. however sometimes you need fresh faces to help keep things new and fresh

    • Beezy_Does_It says:

      We are way past the whole "Fresh Faces" stage. All I see is new/fresh faces compared to what I'm used to. This is not TNA trying to bring in fresh faces, this is TNA converting there WWE like roster to an R.O.H. level.

      • rvdrvd says:

        When Hogan and his cronies were there everybody said cut the high price talent and bring in younger guys, now that TNA is doing just that everyone says stuff like this. Wrestling fans are NEVER happy.

  5. JoeWrestling says:

    They probably need to get their costs in line since they don't know how much money they will get from Spike. Spike will keep them but they pay less than is needed, which is why TNA has such issues. You can only work with how much money you have coming in.

    Last I heard, Dixie's people are worth more money then Vince McMahon. If so, it's strange how wwe is adding wrestlers male and female non stop. And tna laying off wrestlers non stop. Yes wwe does it's spring cleaning with wrestlers, but still

    • Mr. Excitement says:

      Thing is WWE profits and knows how to make money in the business.

      Carter family ain't going to invest money not knowing if they'll see anything back in return. At one point few years back TNA was profiting until Dixie went mad signing many to big contracts and taking Impact on the road didn't help either.

    • rvdrvd says:

      Dixies parents ARE worth more than Vince, but their business is not wrestling, its electricity. TNA is just something they gave Dixie to keep her busy. They have no interest in spending any more then they have to in order to keep the doors open.

  7. Mr. Excitement says:

    Truth is Kaz is nothing without Daniels.

  8. goonpoh says:

    Kaz is a nothing without Daniels indeed. If you notice TNA is sighning young indy talent. And I am all in favor of that. If the originals cannot put your company over where it needs to go. Find younger prospects who can.

  9. gar2233 says:

    aj , sting daniels, kaz, chavo, when is this gonna stop

  10. TNA original says:

    2 of the best things in TNA 's history :cutter ,world cup 2007 ,and legdrop , victory road 2008.
