On Monday March 11, TNA sent out an official press release stating that their annual Slammiversary PPV will take place on Sunday, June 2, in Boston, MA. On Saturday, June 1, TNA will be holding a fan interaction event where they can meet the superstars of Impact Wrestling. Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 29.
Despite the exciting news about Slammiversary, and the success of Sunday's LockDown PPV, there are reports of morale being low in the TNA locker room. According to a March 11 report by ProWrestling.net, many wrestlers are upset over the new TV taping schedule and payment policies. Apparently, the switch to live Impact Wrestling each week, has negatively impacted the frequency of pay for wrestlers.
Although TNA is doing nothing illegal, the wrestlers are frustrated over their current contracts. Additionally, these frustrated wrestlers are waiting for their current contracts to expire so they can renegotiate their pay terms.
This story is definitely a surprise considering the recent success the company is having both financially and creatively. We'll continue to monitor this story for any updates.
