At the 4/5 tapings, some TNA employees were shorted on money including agents, announcers, referees and wrestlers.
The mood backstage at the 4/5 tapings were described by some as a “death watch.” Dusty Rhodes as incurred a lot of heat as head booker of the promotion. Sources are claiming that the idea to book all six sides of steel cage matches at the 4/24 Lockdown PPV either came from Terry Taylor or Jeff Jarrett himself. Some have suggested this was done to blame Rhodes when the PPV failed to attract a strong buy rate, thus the company would replace him as booker.
There is a feeling that Panda Energy might not be as supportive of the project as once thought.
