We're told there has recently been a shift in philosophy in TNA Wrestling regarding where they look for new roster additions. Senior Vice President of Programming and Talent Relations Bruce Prichard feels there is equity in former TNA performers and he wants to continue to look into bringing some of them back. The idea is there are guys TNA invested a lot of television time in and they are available and inexpensive, so why not continue to explore some of them and see which ones stick?
So far, TNA has been happy with Petey Williams and his return to the company. Another name the company is looking to bring back is Jesse Neal. He's been hoping for a chance in WWE but TNA has reached out to see if he would be interested in returning.
Throughout TNA's history, a lot has been invested in talent from WWE or ROH but Prichard feels if there are some "homegrown" TNA guys the audience is already familiar with, it will save the company money and they should begin to look in that direction more when spots open up.
