TNA roster cuts
TNA seems to be trimming down the roster Joey Ryan, Christian York, Taylor Hendrix, Sam Shaw and Madison Rayne. I can honestly think of a few more names that should be added to the list.
Imo Ryan and Rayne are the only real losses. I look for Rayne to return.
Crimson might have been released too.
Rayne is pregnant so she probably has a spot when she's ready. It sucks Ryan was released, everyone else I agree with.
These cuts are not a good sign. How can you release Joey Ryan after that long build they did revolving around Gut Check and him. And Taelor Hendrix is hot. They couldn't have come up with something for her to do after some training.
I love TNA, but something tells me the road shows will end soon and they may go back to the Impact Zone. Cuts will continue, and they are in trouble. I admit when I'm wrong, and I was dead wrong about them. I thought going on the road would improve everything.
I'll be posting a special Sudden Impact Blog either tonight or tomorrow going over some of these things. I'm very upset at this.
That would suck for him, since he's literally just returned to the main roster after doing time in OVW.

Christian York was a good talent from what I saw. Not been used for a while though, so not too surprised he's gone I guess. I think it's a bit of a mistake though when others could have been cut.
Sam Shaw was useless from what I saw. Very generic, so no shock there.
Tayler Hendrix suffered like York in that she was never used. Good wrestler though and really hot. Shame she's gone.
Joey Ryan TNA have completely dropped the ball with. Great on the stick, decent in the ring. Had a lot of potential, and it's TNA's loss.
According to a source this is TNA's way of reducing the payroll and trim the roster; plus they are reportedly one month behind on the payroll. <--- From PWTorch
I did not expect them to release Hendrix though, people seemed to like her, Ryan as well.
Shaw is reportedly still with them.
Turns out Sam Shaw actually survived the cuts.

They've cut Joey Ryan, a guy who has a lot of potential, while kept Sam Shaw who's barely been used at all since he got signed.
Makes ZERO sense.
If Shaw survives, he'll be the only developmental talent to do so
