What makes this story odd is that the two talents that were relieved of appearing on either the PPV or the next set of tapings were involved in a slow build storyline that is now being scrapped. The two talents that have been removed from the tapings are Lance Hoyt and Christy Hemme.
Before rumors begin circulating around the internet, sources have indicated that this was not done as a punishment due to some of the rumors that circulated last week about Hoyt and the WWE. What we have learned is that Taylor had informed both talents that it was simply for budget reasons. Why are they killing the slow build program between VKM and the combination of Hoyt and Hemme? No reasons in particular at this point, but it appears the program has been abandoned. We can confer however that this duo is scheduled to appear at the next set of tapings.
According to several wrestlers, it is believed that there is no “heat” on either of these TNA stars and they too have been told that there would be budget cuts made in several areas.
