TNA Wrestling has postponed their scheduled December tour of India for a date to be announced sometime next year. It’s Thanksgiving day so I haven’t spoken with anyone but I’m sure this announcement will infuriate talent.

We reported on October 1, 2015 on WNW Premium that talent were having to turn down bookings to be available before the tour was announced and they were already getting restless. Now that the tour is off, it’s going to cost them a paycheck. Most indies avoid Thanksgiving and late December, so the week the TNA tour of India was scheduled is really one of the only times over the next month talent can get booked. Below is the official announcement:

Postponement of ‘TNA One Night Only: Mumbai’ Event
