Raises all around.
Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that "a handful of wrestlers in the middle and lower parts of the card" in IMPACT Wrestling were told they would be given a raise prior to Friday's television tapings in Windsor. Other wrestlers were reportedly told on Sunday at Bound For Glory. Fightful was able to verify the news.
Wrestlers who were told they would receive a raise include IMPACT Tag Team Champions The North (Josh Alexander & Ethan Page), X-Division Champion Ace Austin, The Rascalz (Trey, Wentz, & Dez) and Knockouts wrestler Jessicka Havoc.
Satin reports "management wanted to give back to the men and women who’ve sacrificed their bodies to help the company as of late."
It is unclear how significant the raises are, but Satin reports everyone in the locker room was happy with the increase, with one wrestler reportedly "almost brought to tears."
IMPACT pay has been a big talking point in recent months due to the Killer Kross situation. Kross and IMPACT management have been at an "impasse" over pay with Kross wanting a raise, but not getting the number he had requested. Kross is currently still under contract to IMPACT, but hasn't been used since Slammiversary in June.
IMPACT debuts on AXS TV on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
