As reported earlier today, TNA officials have advised company president Dixie Carter to release 15 to 20 names in an extensive cost-cutting measure. Carter is against cutting anyone since she doesn't want talent who have been loyal to the organization be unemployed in these uncertain economic times.

In regard to any Knockouts being cut, the majority of the company's female performers are said to be safe for the time being. Though it should be noted that TNA came close to releasing one Knockout recently but was saved because there is a shortage on available female talent due to the injuries suffered by Angelina Love and Daffney, as well as the departure of Tara. TNA brought back Roxxi at this week's television tapings to help fill the void.

It should be noted that TNA sources have confirmed that roster cuts are coming, but that no final decisions have been made.
