TNA makes changes that effect Superstars booked for indy promotions

PWinsider.com is reporting that TNA is now preventing its talent from appearing for other independent promotions if they will be taped for Internet pay-per-view or if they are set for a DVD release.

Most of the TNA wrestlers were allowed to be booked for other promotions, giving them an opportunity to earn extra money when they are not touring or needed by TNA.

This new rule will halt most of the bookings as most indy shows do sell their shows on DVD to help generate revenue.

Indy promotion NSPW was supposed to have Chavo Guerrero on an upcoming show but he had to be dropped due to the new TNA policy. Guerrero blamed NSPW for “not honoring their contract,” saying that they decided to film and sell the show on DVD which “was never discussed.”

The promotion fired back saying that Guerrero’s claims are incorrect as they always sell DVDs of their shows and this was never an issue with any of previous guests.

“NSPW doesn’t hold anything against Mr Guerrero and wishes him nothing but the best with TNA Wrestling,” the promotion said in a statement.
