Impact Wrestling Issues Bonuses To Talent After Long Tapings


This week on Impact Wrestling the wedding between Melissa Santos and Brian Cage will air. The show was taped in Las Vegas earlier this month and it is being reported that the day they filmed this angle, in particular, ran rather long. According to a report from PW Insider, the promotion has paid the talent from the show a bonus as compensation for the long tapings.

Impact Wrestling recently paid a bonus to talents who worked on a long pre-tape day in Las Vegas for the Brian Cage-Melissa Santos wedding,” PW Insider’s report reads.
