Wrestlers have to manage a lot of other things apart from their performance in the ring and managing their finances while being on the road is also a crucial part in any superstar’s success.
Though not everyone is as proficient in financial management. We have seen stars struggling to support their families due to the extensive costs of being on the road but it appears that the situation is seeing some change.
PWinsider is reporting that Impact Wrestling is now covering the cost of hotels for the talents on the road and they have confirmed the news from multiple sources.
This is something Impact appears to have been working on for a while as back in May, the officials had told the talents that they wanted to give back to the locker room by absorbing some of their financial burdens.
The company also paid for talents’ hotel during their recent tour of Mexico. Though the wrestlers had to cover the costs themselves for tapings in US and Canada.
The site reports that Impact Wrestling will be paying the hotel bills of talents starting from next week’s tapings from Las Vegas and all signs are that this will now be a consistent policy for the company on the road.
Impact Wrestling covering the costs of hotels is positive news for wrestlers as it reduces their financial burden and it’d be interesting to see if other major companies also follow this move.
