As we previously reported, TNA recently had to hold a house show that only featured eight wrestlers. Reports have confirmed that the company had failed to renew some of the talents’ licenses.
Apparently, the company announced that newly crowned TNA World Heavyweight Champion Chris Sabin, Garett Bischoff, Wes Brisco, Jay Bradley, Gail Kim, and Miss Tessmacher would not be allowed to perform due the Missouri Athletic Commission claiming licensing issues. None of these wrestlers had up-to-date paperwork that would allow them to compete.
Generally an executive in the company keeps all of the wrestlers’ credentials current so that these types of issues don’t hinder the product. However, PWInsider.com is reporting that the person that was in charge of this for TNA, Bruce Prichard, was let go earlier in the week and did not get the paperwork done before his departure.
