News on the Contract Status of Two Top TNA Stars

top tna starsAccording to The Wrestling Observer, both Kurt Angle and Austin Aries were left off promotion for the upcoming UK tour in 2015, which is a sign the two have yet to re-sign deals with TNA when their contracts expire.

Angle’s TNA contract expires at the end of September, and as we reported last night he has pitched a return to deal to WWE, which is a big indication he has yet to work out a new agreement with TNA.

As for Aries, it’s possible his TNA deal expires before the UK tour which is why TNA is not promoting him. Jeff Hardy is also not being promoted for the tour, but that’s because he cannot travel to The UK due to a prior felony conviction.
