TNA wrestler Alex Shelley worked a recent PWG show. A few months ago, TNA made the decision to not allow contracted workers to appear on PWG or ROH shows because they often release commercially distributed DVDs of their shows. TNA talent can appear on DVDs the promotions sell through their website or at live events, just not on DVDs which you might find at Best Buy. TNA made a slight exception in this case and allowed Shelley to work the show, although he’s still not allowed to appear on a commercially distributed DVD. However, the two sides didn’t come to an official agreement regarding this, which makes this situation interesting. At the PWG show Shelley worked at, he went on the mike and said that PWG is his favorite place to work for. That remark is obviously not going to win Shelley any brownie points with TNA officials should they find out about it.
