TNA Wrestling Reportedly Owed Bobby Roode & Eric Young a Combined Six Figures

During a recent edition of Pro Wrestling Report, Dave Herro of Great Lakes Championship Wrestling revealed he knows the real reason why Bobby Roode and Eric Young left TNA.

“Bobby Roode and Eric Young left because they were owed a combined six-figures,” Herro said. “How do you not pay those two guys? You let Bobby Roode go, a guy who could have gone to WWE but he wanted to be loyal to the company. Thank God he left. He’ll be a big star in NXT. He’ll make the main roster in a year from now. Same with Eric Young.”

Herro also addressed TNA’s current financial issues and says he thinks the company needs a management change:

“I wish Ring Of Honor would buy TNA. They already have the infrastructure in place. They already have the TV deal alone. They’re already in more markets than Pop TV.”

More Bad News for This Week’s Smackdown

As noted, last night’s edition of WWE Smackdown was the least viewed episode of the show since it moved to the USA Network at the beginning of the year.

In more bad news for the show, this week’s final Smackdown rating was a 1.54, down from last week’s 1.71 rating. This week’s rating is the lowest Smackdown has done since December of 2015.
