It makes sense in theory, but not in practice because of the current stain on TNA coupled with the rumored condition of talents giving 10% of their pay from their independent booking dates to the company along with only getting paid for 1 night's work for a 4 episode taping instead of per episode. That turns young talent off to your brand right away. With options like WWE, NXT, NJPW, and ROH, TNA is not the most attractive landing spot for young talent.

I can appreciate the cost cutting philosophy Anthem has taken to enhance resources for the future, but they went too far. You have to negotiate and find a common middle ground. The one thing you don't do is upset your current staff to the point of leaving, especially since they have kept the company afloat for nearly a year.

Yeah, you're wrong. I'd bet good money on TNA seeing resurgent numbers in the event they were able to sign some of the young independent talents to contracts. If they were able to bring in Devitt, Ospreay, Omega, Nakamura, etc. in the way WWE has been able to lure them to NXT, TNA would be NXT, instead of NXT being, in effect, 2006-2009 TNA.

I don't know why they don't just die already, and sell their tape library and trademarks to WWE. The bone-headed decisions made by numerous owners, has been worse than WCW.
Just venturing a guess here, but maybe because they give a shit and want to see it work. You may want a pro wrestling monopoly, but the industry sure doesn't, and I'm thankful as fuck for that.

There are only so many people one company can sign. There are only so many wrestlers that can perform for a company. Those looking for a break will have no problem signing a contract with Impact. For example, WrestlePro's Kevin Matthews is traveling to Orlando as we speak. He has been a mainstay on the Northeast Indy scene, and has a decent following, and was part of the WWE pipeline when they had OVW. He is 34 and has been in the business for 17 years. His fans are so damn proud of him, that he is FINALLY getting a shot. He will probably bring his pet ferret, Dexter, with him. Joining him is another WrestlePro mainstay, Fallah Bahh. A Yokozuna-type wrestler who is finally getting HIS big break.

You see, as much as you ask that who will sign, there are a plethora of talented wrestlers out there that would be happy to sign with Impact, despite the terms. EVentually, Impact will be on solid footing, where they will not need the Hardys or anyone else. And Impact Wrestling will be better for it.

Incredible pig-headedness by Nordholm aside, it is a huge blow to TNA because of the name value the Hardy's brought and how they basically carried the company since Matt came back in mid-2014, but at the same time, what money were they bringing in?

It was pretty gross how Nordholm was trying to go all AAA on them by trying to take 10% earnings but at the same time, ratings hardly boosted, even for their special videos. There's no merchandise to sell at the moment. Nor is there PPV's to sell (aside from the shitty ONO's.) What exactly were the Hardy's bringing in to TNA aside of the name value? They were under guaranteed deals, getting big buck, the world was given to them and while they were indeed doing their absolute damnedest for the benefit of the company, it was nothing short of keeping the boat afloat.

They reached a point where they're better going to the indies than working in TNA. It's not their fault TNA had no idea how to produce revenue off the Hardy's aside of what was essentially prostituting them, but if TNA wasn't willing to give Matt a creative position, which they should've, then they're better off going elsewhere. For the benefit of both parties.

I'm happy and sad at the same time.

On one hand, Hardyz were a significant big names. On other hand, TNA was more dependent on Hardyz. Too much dependence. Like having a couple of full shows entirely on Hardyz.

So, you can count out TNA's over-dependence on Hardyz. Talents like Jesse Godderz should be given more opportunities.

Also, it's not like the viewership was high just due to Hardyz.

In nutshell, almost a good riddance. Apparently, Drew Galloway should've been resigned.
