Quote Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Impact Wrestling is pushing the intellectual property and freedom aspects in the sense that talent will be free to work many other places and not have to be exclusive to them while recruiting new talent.

The promotion is selling it that the talents can use Impact to help build their names and also can retain their intellectual property rights.

It is expected that Bobby Lashley and Ethan Carter III will leave when their contracts are up, and one or both will end up with WWE.


It appears TNA are going for more of a independent group business model with no exclusively contracted talent, it seems they are far more willing to just book talent on a per appearance basis and allow them to work elsewhere, I’m guessing this is cheaper and is likely also because they plan to tape tv in bigger blocks and run less live events.

It’s sad to see how far they’ve fallen, from once being a fairly decent alternative to WWE with a lot of star power to now being a glorified indy fed with a small time tv deal. Seems the remaining top names are set to filter out, James Storm has gone, Eddie Edwards is said to be on his way out and now ECIII and Lashley heading for the exit. All four of those talents are rumoured to be on their way to WWE. Very happy about this especially in the cases of Lashley and ECIII.

From what I hear TNA are looking to recruit more local Canadian talent from where they will be running their tapings.
