Impact Wrestling Issues “Significant Pay Raises” To Talent
Days out from their debut on AXS TV, Impact Wrestling has issued pay raises to several talents on their roster. According to a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet, multiple wrestlers, including X Division champion Ace Austin and tag team champions the North, have received a bump in pay.
The three members of The Rascals and Jessika Havok are also reported to have received a pay raise. No details are currently available regarding the size of the pay increase, however.
Most wrestlers were informed of the news before yesterday’s TV tapings in Windsor but some were informed before Bound For Glory last weekend.
The members of the Impact roster are said to be quite happy about the pay increase. One wrestler was said to have almost been brought to tears by the good news as well.
