Latest regarding pay issues with Impact Wrestling talent Submitted by Aaron Rift on 02/23/2018 at 06:40 PM
According to PWInsider.com, several Impact Wrestling talents are claiming that they have yet to be paid for the January TV tapings that were held in Orlando, Flordia. Several talents are also claiming that they were not paid for the Bound For Glory PPV and TV tapings that took place in early November.
Anthem president Ed Nordholm issued the following response to these claims:
"Talent is not behind on their pay. We generally provide for talent to be paid as independent contractors in the month following a month in which services are rendered. This was an improvement over previous management, where talent cheques were issued only as the actual episodes aired (could be as much as 12 weeks after tapings before final instalments were delivered).
We instituted a payment policy last year to pay for all services rendered in a month in the following month, regardless of when the shows would air. Accordingly, cheques for January were mailed earlier mid-month; cheques for November were mailed mid-December (and I understand got caught up in Christmas mail delays).
We realize that one unexpected impact of moving our corporate offices to Canada has been a further delay with mail services going cross-border. We are working to streamline our talent payroll processing so future events will be paid closer to the beginning of each month after services are rendered."
