UPDATE x 2: The person that would have been overseeing the licensing of talents for different States would have been Bruce Prichard. Prichard parted ways with TNA last week as we reported.
As previously reported, TNA had a TNA house show in Cape Girardeau, MO on Saturday night. Prior to the start of the show, road agent Pat Kenny had to explain to the crowd that around half the wrestlers who were scheduled would not be allowed to work due to commission licensing issues.
TNA will have to make sure the issues are resolved, as they have a TV taping set for St. Louis, MO in September.
UPDATE: Bruce Prichard is officially gone from TNA. TNA released Prichard, who was Senior Vice President of Programming & Talent Relations, today. As previously reported, there were several issues with Prichard including his stalling out contract negotiations to the point that some, such as Drew Hankinson and RVD, had expired. There was major heat on him for stuff like this.
Also officially released was D’Lo Brown, who had been an agent with the the company since 2009 and was also in charge of the Gutcheck tryouts.
ORIGINAL: Bruce Prichard may become a casualty of TNA’s cost-cutting. Sources report that as the company restructures itself, they have been asking office personnel to restructure their deals. Prichard was asked to do so and has reportedly rejected that request and his days are said to be numbered in the company as a result.
TNA’s agents were also asked to do so and some within TNA say that shortly after D-Lo agreed to a per-night agreement, he was fired.
More as we get it.
