TNA Stars Comment On Company’s Status
TNA stars continue to be asked about the company’s status after news that numerous offers have been made to buy it. Gail Kim told USA Today:
I think change is always scary but also always good. We were at a point where the talent never really knew everything that was going on and you hear rumors, but as of the last (TV) tapings, we had a clearer direction … The roster — whoever was there and no matter how many changes — has always been a family. Whether morale was high or low, you had to put in the work and nobody gave less than 100%. That’s never changed from the first day to now.
EC3 took to Twitter to reassure fans that he’ll be at Bound For Glory and the show will go on:
This is a wrestling show. This is a wrestling show that takes place due to an unparalleled effort of it’s talent, production, and host of others who’s names you may never hear. This is a wrestling show that is a combined effort of those women and men, who through turbulence, constant noise and leadership decisions outside of their control will take whatever opportunity they have to deliver. To do what they love. This is not a perfect wrestling show, this is not a perfect company, and this is not a perfect industry. The only thing that can be perfect is the combined effort from each individual to move forward as team. For the person next to you. For the fanbase that supports you. This is a wrestling show.
