TNA is still pushing with their cost-cutting measures in regard to talent. As has been heavily reported, many names have been pushed to take deals with lesser pay over the last several months and has caused talent such as A.J. Styles and Hulk Hogan to go elsewhere. The company is still doing this and asking some talent to take less money once their existing contracts expire, with others who have time left on their contacts being asked to restructure their contracts for less pay.

One veteran wrestler for the promotion said that several names have been asked to make the change, noting, "Before you know it, they'll be charging wrestlers to perform."
