As previously reported here on eWrestlingNews.com, TNA Wrestling recently re-signed Abyss, Rosemary, DJZ, Rockstar Spud, Trevor Lee and Al Snow. In an update on this, these contracts are new “exclusive” deals. The contracts will see TNA Wrestling control their bookings outside of the company.
After the last set of TNA iMPACT! Wrestling TV tapings, the company was not able to re-sign Matt & Jeff Hardy, Drew Galloway and Ethan Carter III to one of the new exclusive deals. As of this writing, they are all still under contract with TNA Wrestling , but are under old deals, where they control almost all of their outside bookings. This allows them to work anywhere that doesn’t have a cable or broadcast deal in the United States. That is why Galloway and “EC3” have worked several EVOLVE events.
