Clarification On Various Announcements Of Recent TNA Releases

Bill Behrens

I’ve read reports of recent TNA releases including those we reported here crediting the others who originated the reports.

One key clarification is that the talent noted, Petey Williams, Jimmy Rave & Lance Rock/Hoyt, were not "released," rather each will not be renewed by TNA when current contracts are up.

All are still currently under contract and are listed on the TNA website roster page. 

TNA rarely announces when talent leaves the company, and does not "wish them well in future endeavors" like WWE.

Obviously TNA ran an angle where Petey lost a match and his job, which will air on 2-19, so until then he’s part of the company’s TV product, and has a match with Scott Steiner this Thursday on iMPACT.

Jimmy Rave is still being promoted to appear for TNA on Feb 20 in Macon, GA.


The superstars of Total Nonstop Action (TNA) will bring the “Main Event Mafia Respect Tour” to Macon, Georgia at the Macon Centreplex Coliseum on Friday, February 20. Appearing live and in person will be Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle, “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner, “King of the Mountain” Jeff Jarrett, TNA Legend’s Champion Booker T, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles, TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money, Inc., TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Awesome Kong, “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal, The Latin American Xchange, Consequences Creed, Sheik Abdul Bashir, Jimmy Rave, Taylor Wilde, and more! Tickets are on sale now at the Macon Coliseum Box Office, , and all Ticketmaster locations.

It ain’t over til it’s over.
