We’ve received some questions regarding Bobby Roode’s contract status with TNA Wrestling.
Roode’s latest contract was for five years and commenced on March 1, 2009, meaning the deal wouldn’t expire until March 1, 2014. However, here is the kicker. The majority of TNA contracts feature options in their latter years. The options vary depending on the terms of the contract, as some are at the discretion of TNA while others are at the discretion of the worker.
Lately, TNA has been declining company options and renegotiating deals at lower rates. I don’t know and can’t confirm if this is the case with Roode although the word from TNA observers in San Antonio is that Roode’s future is unclear.
Roode is scheduled to team with Austin Aries to defend the TNA Tag Team Championship at Lockdown against Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels & Kazarian) and Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez.
