It’s unknown whether he will take time off, or immediately work with TNA. If he does go to TNA, he will likely be getting paid somewhere in the $2,000/week range, if not higher. He would only have to work four events every month, and since he lives in the same state that TNA films their shows, he wouldn’t have to endure a travel schedule like WWE’s. This would be a huge cut from WWE’s 12-15 events per month.
When Matt Hardy was first offered a TNA deal, they had not yet secured their Spike TV slot. However now that the company is steady on Spike, combined with the comparatively low workload to WWE, there’s definitely some that are very confident Christian will be joining the company.
