News and Notes on Last Night's TNA Musical Issue, TNA Talents Ready to Walk

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that last night's episode of Impact Wrestling was almost pulled by Pop TV due to a musical rights issue not related to the Billy Corgan lawsuit. The show ended up airing with some wrestlers coming out with dubbed in crowd noise instead of their music. It was noted that there was a period yesterday where it looked like there was a good chance that Pop would pull the show until the issue was settled and the songs were edited out of the show.

Mike Bennett commented on his music being edited out of last night's show, writing on Twitter:

Music? I don't need no stinkin music #IMPACTonPOP

It's BS. My entrance and theme song is all I got. You take those away I'm all out of stuff. What, am I suppose to just rely on wrestling ??

Speaking of TNA, they held their television tapings last week that gave them enough content for the show to air through December. While TNA received funding before Bound For Glory for the uplink and production of the PPV and subsequent television tapings, it's not clear if it was enough to pay the talent through the end of the year. Dave Meltzer noted that not paying the talent would breach their contracts, and he knows that "a couple of guys" are ready to declare themselves free agents next week if they do not get paid this weekend.
