Possible TNA salary information floating around

Found this floating around on the internets:

Note 1: There was no information received for the likes of Hulk Hogan, Dixie Carter, Bischoff, and Jeff Jarrett. We have to assume that their contracts are tied up in the corporate end, and not through the system that pays performers.

Note 2: Very few TNA performers get generous “WWE style” perks such as first class travel and hotel comps.

Note 3: TNA do recieve merchandise cut bonuses, these are noted where applicable, although exact figures were not made available to us.

Note 4: As you will observe, TNA downsides are MUCH lower than WWE downsides.

Note 5: Kurt Angle and Sting both have contracts wherein, they are only required to work a certain amount of dates per month.

Don’t know how much, if any of it, is accurate, but if it’s available online, then you know it must be the gospel truth. Like this: Last night aliens abducted Jeremy Maes, ripped his heart out, and replaced it with that of a sheep. So now he bleats when he tries to talk. Take it to the bank. – Dusty

    Those salaries seem a little high? I mean I get Hardy and guys like that getting paid but Anderson making that much? Maybe I’m in the wrong line of work!
