Another TNA Star Comments On Release, TNA Editing

Ryan Clark

Most of what you see on television when it comes to matches and angles is heavily edited. They always tape far too much for one hour, and then chop it down, which is why everything comes across so hurried. As of late they’ve booked longer matches, but a 6 minute match is often edited down to 3 minutes for television. Also, some of the longer in-ring beatdown angles are also edited down. The editing explains the quick cutaways to get to the next segment.

Chase Stevens posted the following message on his MySpace page ( regarding The Naturals’ release from TNA last week: First off I want to thank everyone for their support and concerns for Andy and I. The bad news is the rumors are true and Andy and I have been released from TNA. I want to thank all my friends in TNA. I had a great time over the years with TNA. TNA has changed this past year and in that change TNA has lost what is important for the company and thats new faces and listening to the fans. TNA has their hands full trying to put a few main guys on tv that has been on tv for a decade now. In my opinion if the fans wanted to truely watch those few guys than they wouldnt have been let go from their other promotions. WCW made the same mistake years ago and in turn we all see the same thing happening again. I have been with TNA since day one and I feel I realy never got my shot to show my talent. Some of you critics will disagree but non of you know the whole story. Everytime I was headed to the top I got heald back for reason I could not help so in return that is what I mean by heald back. I will not bury TNA nor say anything I would not have said to anyone that works there. The good news is Im still a professional wrestler and just because Im not on tv today doesnt mean I wont be on tv tomorrow. I see this as a opportunity to move on and progress my career to build my legacy. Andy will be right beside me the whole time and The Naturals wont be down for long. We are young and talented we have traveled up and down the roads together went through the good and the bad and paid our dues to get where we are. Out with the old in with the new. Its a new day and The Naturals have alot of thinking to do. All you fans that support us we thank you and we wont let you down. See you all soon For all you fans with questions as to why we was let go. That questions still remains I know just as much as you all. You can email TNA at and ask them any questions you have. Feel free to voice your opinion. Its you fans that make us the stars we are today and with out your voice there would not be a Chase Stevens or Andy Douglas. Thank you, Chase
