Alex Shelley has left TNA
Ric Flair has left TNA
Chris Sabin, before getting injured again, was going to leave TNA. When he gets healthy, he will leave TNA.
Bully Ray and Devon's contracts are about to expire, I think they should leave TNA.
Matt Morgan has left TNA.
Now I am reading that Velvet Sky will leave TNA pretty soon.
I know people shrugs at some of those names. I read other people say that losing Velvet is no big deal and that Matt Morgan is not worth it.
Here's the problem: It's easy to shrug your shoulders and say TNA won't miss these people but TNA is not a recycling factory.
When you are losing lots of good talent, the task of replacing them with equal or better talent is a difficult thing to do.
2 great examples of this: ECW and ROH
Paul Heyman kept finding talent and gave them a chance to be on TV. As a result, he kept losing talent to WCW and WWE. He would lose Rey Misterio, he would replace him with Juvi Guerrera, when he lost Juvi, he would replace him with Supercrazy. But when he lost Supercrazy, there was nuthin' out there. He would run out of good wrestlers and had to settle for below average talent like CW Anderson.
Same for ROH. They lose CM Punk, they still have Bryan Danielson. They lose Bryan, they still had Nigel McGuinness, once they lost Nigel McGuinness, they were stuck with Roderick Strong or stuck with someone not ready to carry the company.
TNA are going to find themselves in a difficult situation if they keep losing talent like this.
Young and cheap talent like Taelor Hendrix may help the budget but will fans really care?
