    Eric Young is gone from TNA as his contract expired and the two sides couldn't come to terms before it finished. .

    The departure surprised and saddened a lot of the guys at TV this week as he's been around forever and was always seen as a company guy. Young was someone who worked really hard to earn his position in the company, often helping out in the office and other duties during the fledgling days of TNA.

    In recent months, he had been part of a comedy tag team with Orlando Jordan.

    The two sides are still in discussion.


He's the definition of a good company man. I mean, he'd have to be to stick around after getting jerked around for so long. Still, I'd hate to see him unemployed, so hopefully both sides can work out their issues.

So, should he even bother calling Vince or should he just pray the indies can pay the bills? ROH might give him a shot.

Eric Young has been employed for years and years because of his friendship with Jarrett, while other more talented guys were let go. I much rather see him go and not waste more airtime on his comedy or tag team with Orlando Jordan.I mean he's not a bad wrestler or anything but has limited upside. I hope he finds a job elsewhere.

His was the first wheelbarrow cutter I saw, and in my mind it will be "his" move. I didn't buy him as the leader of the global stable nor did I think his superhero shtick was great. But, as a low midcarder, he had the goods.

I don't mind him as a jobber or a flunky. The WWE actually could probably get some milage out of him since he's basically up for anything. We always complain when they put talented guys in those spots anyways.

I know I'm probably alone in this but I see somewhat of a young Chris Jericho in Young.

I'd love to see EY get a shot in the WWE but, then again, there's so many underutilized mid-carders as it is, that I'm not sure where he'd go.

I liked his heel run with World Elite and thought they could've done more with it. He wasn't a horrible worker, just very generic.

Still there are a laundry list of guys (and girls) they were released before him that were superior talents.

Really? I could see that if you said that about Alex Shelley but Eric Young?! He has some personality but it's as a goofball. When he played a serious character he displayed as much personality as Ted Dibiase Jr. does.

Considering how terrible things are on the indie scene, I'm wondering how bad the pay cut was if he is ready to opt out of the company entirely.

And as an x division guy, he probably wasn't making a whole lot anyway.

Somewhere, Orlando Jordan breathes a huge sigh of relief.
