TNA News: Extent and value of Moose's TNA contract revealed
Surprisingly, TNA is paying him more than WWE offered
As we reported earlier, former Ring Of Honor star Moose made his TNA debut last week during the impact tapings. Moose came face to face with the TNA World Champion Bobby Lashley during his first appearance for the company.
It shows that TNA officials are very high on their new talent and they are bidding him as a potential main eventer for the company in future. Now it looks like they have strong reasons for doing so.
Wrestling Observer reported that Moose is being paid $75,000 per year for his two-year contract where he will be making a total of 110 on-screen appearances for TNA.
This is seen as a very big investment for a company who has been dealing with a serious financial crisis from well over a year now and has been accused by employees of paying them 4 to 8 months late on multiple occasions.
Moose, who also happens to be a former NFL player, was also considered by WWE officials for NXT but these plans were scrapped when they learned about the 2009 domestic violence incident. Moose is said to be making more money than he was originally offered by both WWE and ROH.
