– Among some of the top wrestlers in TNA, there is said to be very little respect for the company these days, with one wrestler specifically naming Booker T as a prime example. Morale underneath is also said to be down, similar to the atmosphere in World Championship Wrestling during its dying days.
One TNA wrestler offered comments to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer regarding the current backstage atmosphere after reading his thoughts on the problems plaguing the organization.
“You hit the nail on the head with the top guys just having no respect for the place,” the TNA wrestler said. “They just d*** around and don’t give a s*** what they do. House shows are an even bigger joke. Take Booker, when he first came in he was gung ho about helping out the younger guys, contributing to the company and now he’s the worst and doesn’t give a s***.”
There is also a feeling that if the wrestlers on the low end of the card performed as badly as some of the wrestlers being pushed at the moment, they’d be fired. However, the wrestlers working badly week after week remain pushed.
“It all starts with the booking. Like you said, it seems as if they have no care of good or bad.”
