On episode 12 of Something To Wrestle With Bruce Prichard, the professional wrestling veteran spoke about his time in TNA. One incident the former Senior Vice President of Programming and Talent Relations at TNA shared during the show involved TNA garnishing his withholdings from the United States federal government, and then failing to make the payment to the government.
According to Prichard, TNA garnished his withholdings and did not make the payment to the federal government.
"They did something that was really bad. I had some financial issues and they were supposed to pay back into the government and so on and so forth and they didn't do it. They garnished things from my check. And they were supposed to pay. [TNA] kept [the money]. Correct. Then, the government came after me for payment."
As the story goes, TNA owed the government approximately $10,000. Prichard indicated that the government ultimately collected on the outstanding bill.
"That was about, it was only about $10,000. But still, just the arrogance. Well, it wasn't coming to me, but the government finally got it because it was the government coming after me for the money. I showed them proof, 'hey, here's where they took it.' So I don't know because I didn't hear the end of it, other than the government was satisfied and it was just those kind of little, petty things that didn't have to happen there. It made you feel kind of dirty at the end."
