A source noted the checks might be arriving in time for TNA’s upcoming Slammiversary PPV and subsequent TV tapings.

One TNA performer expressed frustration over the company showing off the new X-Division Championship, as he believed it was an expensive new title belt, however according to one source, it’s actually not a new title, it’s just painted a new color.

According to the same source, employees of the company are paid on time, whereas the independent contracts (wrestlers, production staff, etc.) fall victim to the late pay.
