TNA news: Bobby Lashley just working on handshake agreement right now

Things in TNA Impact Wrestling look very shaky right now. The last two weeks of television have been drastic improvements and it looks like they are finally getting on the right track, however there are problems. According to PWS on March 14, Bobby Lashley is working under a handshake agreement right now.

According to sources, the reason that TNA Impact Wrestling had not signed him yet was because they wanted to keep his arrival at “TNA Lockdown” a secret. That sounds like a good plan, but it also sounds like an excuse.

A similar excuse came in January when MVP debuted in TNA Impact Wrestling while they were on the U.K. tour. MVP is also working on a handshake agreement and he said that he wanted to make his debut for the company in the U.K., which is why they went ahead and had him show up without a contract.

When the new figurehead for the company is not under an official contract and the new superstar introduced back into the company is also not under a contract, there is a reason to worry.

The WWE is negotiating for a new television contract and if Viacom wins that bidding, they will drop TNA Impact Wrestling. There is also the arrival of Jeff Jarrett’s new wrestling promotion and possible defections to his group, plus the money problems that led to the release of a number of wrestlers over the last six months.
