Some more cost cutting: Tara and DOC are both gone.







Tara's 42 so I don't think we'll see her on WWE TV, though I feel she could still be a valuable asset, particularly in a backstage role. DOC's release is surprising, since he's a big part of A&E and was involved in the VP of Aces and Eights storyline as of last week.

Like the rest of the Internet, I wonder if Luke Gallows may return to WWE...and how.

Doc's tweet seems to indicate that someone may have forgotten to renew his deal. I don't see why something can't be worked out before the next live Impact.

How long has Doc been in TNA, anyway? Seems a rather short contract.

He returns to WWE to avenge the beating of his friend and mentor, CM Punk?

Or he becomes a Heyman guy?

And sure enough...


    While Tara was a release planned by TNA as a cost-cutting move, sources indicate that the company lost Doc because his contract negotiations went on too long and finally his deal expired. He had been figured into creative plans going forward with an eventual babyface turn, something that had been teased.

    The blame on Doc's exit was placed on Bruce Prichard, head of Creative and Talent Relations by some. There were several different sources this evening that contacted PWInsider, claiming that this was just the latest example of contract negotiations going down to the wire or resulting in talents exiting this year under Prichard's watch.


Seriously, how could Prichard let this happen AGAIN? Wasn't the Bobby Roode deal enough of a close call for him to learn his lesson?

The rest of the link does seem to indicate what I noted earlier and that's that there could be a new deal in place soon. I wouldn't say goodbye to Doc just yet.

The Aces angle started in June of last year, so he's probably been around for about a year. Seems like a decent length for a contract.

I think Doc's done. Bischoff has given him the standard "hell of a talent, hope to work with him in the future" spiel.

Supposedly the main reason for letting Tara go was $ as aside from Christy Hemme she was reportedly the highest paid KO. But still a stupid move on TNA's part given that they are down to 6 KO's on the roster (Gail,Mickie,ODB,Velvet,Taryn & Tess). Seeing that they're still bringing in some of the highest if not the highest rated ( and by fan accounts exciting ) segments, it's too bad that the producers out of pigheadedness just don't want to utilize the division to it's creative fullness. Though some rumors now are that Pritchard ( who apparently was part of the executive trio that didn't want them featured ) is gone too along with D-LO, knowing how Bischoff & Hogan killed off the women in WCW, I don't have alot of faith in anything too positive turning around. IMO those 2 are killing the whole company, which on paper still has half a roster of talented people who could carry the brand, for the sake of emulating WWE without a modicum of actual entertainment outside of what the good performers naturally bring. I know Spike wants star power to maintain a fan base, but I really don't think that low level MMA fighters, B grade reality people, and guys who couldn't cut it in WWE are doing anything to help.

Do TNA talents have a ninety day clause in their contracts too?

There's a buzz building amongst the dirtsheets that this is the beginning of The End for TNA. Their TV tapings are costing them $600k a pop according to Meltzer, and they've burnt their bridges with Universal. I have no idea how accurate the notion of this being the beginning of a terminal crisis is - anybody else have a take?

If they can still get a 1.0 or close to it, I doubt Spike will let them just fold up. Yet, you have the rumors of WWE wanting their studio to build the HOF or around it. The rumors of Sting leaving to face Taker at WM 30 on top of the talent purge. Pritchards' days are numbered too. The agents are now on pay as you show instead of contracts which is not a good sign either. It doesn't look good.

The AGENTS are on a per-show basis? Ye gods, I'd better go to Friday's TNA house show while I have the chance.

Originally, they were all under contracts. So, it seems to be another cost cutting measure.

The studio is history - Universal are happy to have it back for Halloween stuff and expansions on their existing rides, and they seem to be angling to get into the WWE business on top of that. Talent is allegedly being paid up to six weeks late - if Spike aren't willing to cover stuff like that, they're not going to keep the whole promotion afloat for the sake of a 1.0.

WON has an oddly-worded article here that says that Pritchard is done as well (f4wonline.com).

It's all a bit sad, really. The last few weeks' show quality has actually been pretty good.

This would be a bad time for TNA to fall apart with the WWE roster filling up quite nicely with home grown talent unless they felt like giving Smackdown another run. There are about ten to twelve guys I would like to see return or debut in the WWE, but it would be tough finding time for six right now.

People like Angle, Hardy and Sting would probably go on part-time big show schedules. Beer Money has been on HHH's tag team list forever, so they'd probably find space for them. Bully is tailor-made for a Cena feud. Aside from that most of them would probably be better off going to ROH if TNA folded.

I'd love to see Bully Ray get a high-card angle in WWE, but they simply don't need another heel. However, he would be wonderful in ROH.

The end of TNA is still losing Spike. This is more about TNA being less willing to lose money than they would've been a few years ago. Losing people on this will probably make it harder to stay on Spike, but it's a ways down on the list of problems for TNA.

(I would also guess we'll have "[X] and [X] gone from Impact Wrestling" threads every month for a while, and possibly some bigger names leaving down the road.)
