I'm told there is a certain level of "nervousness" surrounding Scott Steiner'slawsuit against TNA Wrestling. One observer says TNA has never been very organized with their accounting and would have a hard time producing detailed information.
Unlike WWE, which is a publicly traded company, the way TNA is structured is believed to benefit its parent company, Panda Energy, in regards to how it is taxed. The point is if a former worker requested a full accounting of their royalties, TNA would have a hard time producing this information.
This is why Steiner is focusing specifically on royalties in his countersuit because he knows it would be very damning for the company's accounting practices to be brought to the forefront, especially in court.
I'm told some of the smarter workers that have worked in TNA in the past have noticed discrepancies in their royalty statements, so word begin to get around over the last couple years that this would be a way to nail TNA if there was ever a contract dispute that got litigious.
