Last Night's TNA Impact Wrestling Almost Pulled?, Some TNA Talents May Walk If Not Paid This Weekend

As noted, TNA held their television tapings last week that gave them enough content for the show to air through December. Dave Meltzer noted on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that this weekend is a pay period and talent are supposed to get paid. While TNA received funding before Bound For Glory for the uplink and production of the PPV and subsequent television tapings, it's not clear if it was enough to pay the talent through the end of the year. Meltzer noted that not paying the talent would breach their contracts, and he knows that "a couple of guys" are ready to declare themselves free agents next week if they do not get paid this weekend.

Meltzer also reported that last night's Impact Wrestling was almost pulled by Pop TV yesterday afternoon due to a musical rights issue not related to the Billy Corgan lawsuit. The show ended up airing with some wrestlers coming out with dubbed in crowd noise instead of their music. It was noted that there was a period yesterday where it looked like there was a good chance that Pop would pull the show until the issue was settled and the songs were edited out of the show.

Mike Bennett commented on his music being edited out of last night's show, writing on Twitter:
