Yesterday, Christopher Daniels noted on his twitter account that he has become a free agent. His deal with TNA expired recently and he hasn’t been used on television in weeks. Well, it looks like Frankie Kazarian may be next. Bill Behrens (who represents both Kaz and Daniels) is pushing both as being available for Independent dates. Daniels is free and clear and can appear on iPPV shows and DVDs. Daniels will be available to do seminars, matches, and other appearances (including his Curry Man character). TNA’s mentality is that they are moving forward with younger talent. In other words, they are replacing talents for guys that are willing to work cheap.
Chris Sabin’s contract expires in a couple of weeks and it doesn’t look like he will be re-signing with the company. Originally it was reported that his deal had already expired.
He hasn’t been on TV of late either. Back when Alex Shelley left the company to go to Japan the feeling at the time was that Sabin was not going to renew his deal and would go to Japan as well. Sabin’s last TNA appearance was for the One Night Only pay-per-view tapings. He put over Low Ki. That show won’t air until later this year.
