    Has to be Aries.

    Could be Roode, they reportedly /did/ forget to renew his contract at one point.

    Pretty sure I saw something saying it was most likely due to an office mistake in which case someone needs fired. Sure that wasn't aries fine for teabagging hemme. The truth comes here....TNA held going on the road for a long time, the reason for this was so they had the right money to make the move, I highly doubt there in that bad financial. Sometimes people aren't payed to allow the company to make sure they save more money and they pay later...so it doesn't necessarily mean the bank is empty.

    I consider myself a huge TNA fan/supporter, but it seems they bit off more than they can chew, they seriously need to reconsider their direction if they are going to stay afloat. I'm worrying about them right now, things look really bleak right now, and dropping some talent/execs is more of a temporary solution rather than a long term one. If their roster is not getting paid, why would they stick around? We could be seeing good people packing their shit and leaving pretty soon

    And this is the first time I'm going to go down this road, but it's always the "talent" that is behind on pay, or complaining about direction, but (guess who) Hulk Hogan never complains, meaning they pay Hulk his money (which is significantly above the wrestlers) before they pay the people who actually work for the company. This is literally the first time I've bashed Hogan for milking TNA, but now there's just no other answer.

    No, they actually did forget that his contract expired.

    But I doubt it's Roode. No way is TNA dumb enough to forget to pay him after that fiasco.
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    "Holy shit, first they forget to resign me. Now they forget to repay me. God damn it, what did I do with Trips number?"

    Though, if it's Aries, that would go a long way in showing how much they cared about that tag team. Let ones contract expire, not paying the other. I think it may be a subtle sign

    You speak as if Joey Ryan ACTUALLY is a wannabe porn star, like in real life.....
    Just because that's the character he played in TNA doesn't mean that's the only character he's capable of playing.

    How Garrett Bischoff has a job and Crimson doesn't in TNA is beyond a joke! (It's a retorical question, I know Garrett has a job because of 'Daddy')

    I always thought Crimson had a great look, no bad on the mic, and was the future of TNA. Him and Gunner would have been a great team! Such a damn WASTE!

    I agree with some of you, also, Joey Ryan was GOLD!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't they just leave Roode off television when they forgot his contract? I think I remember Aries doing the whole build-up to a PPV match for the tag championships by himself and they had to give Roode a great deal so he would sign in time to appear on the PPV.
    Forum section back on the front page? Sweet!

    Maybe in paying Roode so much they ran out of money to pay Aries......... the downside of tag team wrestling, you're budgeted for as a unit

    People forget that TNA doesn't exactly pay Hogan his money, but Spike and Panda Energy does.

    As for the cuts one contract expired Rayne) and after she takes care of motherhood, and is ready to come back, she'll be resigned.
    Hendrix asked to be released, so she was, Ryan a good start but nothing from him since,(TNA dropped the ball there).

    York had a good match with Hardy, but was slow in doing his moves then, and didn't improve any after.
    Crimson wasn't even seen on TNA tv except for a month ago, and will probably get a new contract shortly, under different terms.

    So a little money saved by talent that, wanted to leave, contract ending, and wasn't be used anyway.
    No idea about talent not getting payed so can't comment on that, but this doesn't mean TNA will end soon.
    Nor is this as big of a story people are portraying it to be.
