We reported last night that TNA had tried to put together a deal that would mark the return of Konnan to the promotion. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Vince Russo tried to broker a deal for Konnan to return to TNA. Konnan claims TNA owes him $12,000 for six months worth of doing Spanish announcing he did for the company. TNA claims Konnan owes the promotion $16,000 for the loan TNA extended to him for his replacement surgery. At one point, Konnan wrote TNA a letter requesting a raise since he was discriminated against. TNA took it as blackmail, and forwarded the the letter to HBO, who was set to interview Konnan for Real Sports, to follow up a 2003 piece on deaths in wrestling. As a result, HBO decided against interviewing Konnan from his hospital bed.
