Chris Kanyon has updated his Myspace, saying he was at the TNA tapings but didn’t work. Here is what he had to say :
For those of you who have read that I was at the last TNA taping but refused to work, I want to clarify why. They presented me with a “standard” 1-day release contract. It was 2 pages of legal talk, most of which I believe I understood. But than I got to the following section and I felt that by signing it, that I would be giving them the ability to merchandise me for the rest of my life (“perpetual”) without any payment to me. I asked them to remove this section and they refused, so I did not do the taping. If anyone is a lawyer and/or familiar with contracts of this type, please private message me back with the topic “TNA CONTRACT”, and tell me if I interpreted this section properly. Thanks.
