SONJAY DUTT: I heard it was over pay, but if you put yourself in this guys shoes if he's got an opportunity to go back to Vince [McMahon] and make the money that he was making compared to what he's doing in TNA. Also man a lot of the time for guys it's not just about the money but it's about being presented in a bigger light, and he wanted to do other stuff I think he wants to do acting and stuff and maybe WWE is the ticket to jumpstart himself into other ventures and stuff. Guys that have been there and done that and then come to TNA they sometimes at a point, I think you kind of realize the ventures I want to do, maybe this isn't the catapult that I need to get into those other things and he went back. I think it's pretty much cut and dry.
BILL BEHRENS: Christian honestly was pretty happy. One of the primary reasons Christian didn't renew with TNA had very little to do with him being unhappy with how well he was being used and all that kind of stuff, it had a lot to do with the financial crisis and the fact that Christian has a really nice expensive house and even though he had been wise and invested his money, he invested his money. All of the sudden the nest egg didn't become as big a nest, and another run with WWE where you can make real money became a better idea. TNA wasn't going to belly up to the bar and give Christian the same kind of money that he has as an upside in a WWE deal. The reality of the WWE deal is not your downside, but what you can make on the upside. I was talking, for example, to a recently released talent who just got his commission check from a video game and the commission check was for $20,000. There is no one at TNA right now on an entire commission check from all merchandise that makes that much, on a quarterly basis it just doesn't happen. That's the dramatic difference between the two. Jeff Hardy had as little as $150,000 downside at WWE, when he left had made well over 1 million dollars in the previous year, which is one of the reasons Jeff Hardy can sign with TNA and make considerably less money, dramatically less.
