Episode 12 had released a while back of Something To Wrestle With Bruce Prichard. He’s a professional wrestling veteran, and he spoke about his time in TNA. There was one incident the former Senior Vice President of Programming and Talent Relations at TNA shared during the episode which involved TNA garnishing his withholdings from the United States federal government, and then not making the payments to the government.
TNA garnished Bruce’s withholdings and did not make the payment to the federal government.
“They did something that was really bad. I had some financial issues and they were supposed to pay back into the government and so on and so forth and they didn’t do it. They garnished things from my check. And they were supposed to pay. [TNA] kept [the money]. Correct. Then, the government came after me for payment.”
TNA had owed the government approximately $10,000. Prichard indicated that the government ultimately collected on the outstanding bill later on.
“That was about, it was only about $10,000. But still, just the arrogance. Well, it wasn’t coming to me, but the government finally got it because it was the government coming after me for the money. I showed them proof, ‘hey, here’s where they took it.’ So I don’t know because I didn’t hear the end of it, other than the government was satisfied and it was just those kind of little, petty things that didn’t have to happen there. It made you feel kind of dirty at the end.”
