Behrens blames TNA and its lawyer for Bullet Club members fiasco

Bullet Club
 

In a full statement issued to Pro Wrestling Insider, Bill Behrens blamed the chaos between Bullet Club members AJ Styles, Doc Gallows, and Karl Anderson and TNA on TNA’s part, specifically mentioning their first lawyer for not presenting a contract that accurately reflected previous discussions in a timely manner.

Behrens said that TNA knew that he had to be involved in the contract process and it was understood by them however he was left out of the talks. “TNA was aware of other interest and various conflicts. TNA was aware a final contract was required. It was creating that contract and controlled that timetable. Too much time passed early on. Other things came into play. No contract was ever finalized with TNA,” Behrens told PWInsider.

He also said that that he did not make any decision for any of his clients, calling the rumors that he pulled the strings as an insult to the talent who can freely make their own decisions. The full statement reads as follows:

“No contract was ever finalized nor signed by the parties. That I would need to be involved in the contract process was known by TNA prior to my involvement and understood by them. TNA and its 1st lawyer did not present in a timely fashion a contract that accurately reflected previous discussions at all. That created great concern tied to past experiences. In that time and prior there was other interest and there were other firm offers on the table and other discussions. TNA was aware of other interest and various conflicts. TNA was aware a final contract was required. It was creating that contract and controlled that timetable. Too much time passed early on. Other things came into play. No contract was ever finalized with TNA. To suggest I make any decision for my clients is to misunderstand my role and diminish the role each talent has in making their own decisions, and insults the talent in the process.”
