More On The TNA Production Crew Threatening To Walk Out Last Week
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.16.2014
The same thing happened around last year...
As previously reported, the TNA production crew threatened to walk out of the last Impact Wrestling taping because of late payments. The entire situation ended peacefully and the crew was paid before anyone was able to walk out. Before the last set of tapings, some of the crew hadn't been paid since early March. While most were upset, not all of them were prepared to leave.
The same situation happened around this time last year. Janice Carter, Dixie's mom and the person who controls the company's finances, sets aside a portion of money each month to finance the times the company loses money. It's outside of the revenue the company earns on its own. Since TNA taped so many events and PPVs in a short period of time so far in advance, they just didn't have the money. This is the same thing that hurt them last year.
It's still thought that this incident was isolated and not indicative of any problems in the company. In 2013, the crew and talent were paid on a regular basis. While checks may arrive a few days late today, TNA is still paying their employees on time.
