According to PWInsider.com, TNA is now strictly enforcing a policy which does not allow talent to appear at indy events that will later be released on DVD. As a result, many indy promotions are no longer booking TNA talents for their events.
A most recent case of this concerned Chavo Guerrero, who announced that he was pulling out of an NSPW event because the promotion intended to later release the show on DVD.
NSPW responded to Guerrero pulling out of the show by issuing the following statement:
Due to TNA deciding that their talent cant appear on indy feds' dvd, we hav no choice but to cancel Chavo Guerrero's appearance on Oct. 6th. Mr. Guerrero's claim that we decided last minute to tape and sell dvds is incorrect has we have done dvds of all of our shows. It is just not possible to cover the cost without dvds of the event. Never in the past has this been an issue with any guests. NSPW finds the situation and the decision made by TNA to prevent talent from appearing on dvds to be unfortunate. NSPW doesn't hold anything against Mr Guerrero and wishes him nothing but the best with TNA Wrestling. A suitable replacement for our Main Event will be announced tonight!
