Everythings free for them since injury is part of their career. If they don't sell enough merchandise and get injured a lot, they get let go from the company.

WWE, yes. TNA, no. Shocking right? Its true. Did you know in TNA, its true, they have a less harder schedule, but they have to pay for their own hospital bills and travels. In WWE, you have to pay for travels, but they will insure you for injuries. See, TNA stars get paid a lot less then WWE stars, and even though TNA does not has as much politics as WWE (it still does), the benefits are horrible. The pay is so bad, most TNA wrestlers have to take a second job, like Madison Rayne, who was the TNA knockout champ at the time, was still working in a sunglasses hut at a mall. The Contracts, in WWE is much more stricter and tighter, but TNA only allows certain number of appearances, unlike WWE's 2 year contracts. So like 38 appearances in a year, and they only get paid for those appearances. And here is the sad part. Homicide, the wrestler that worked in TNA a while back, pulled a groin injury, but refused to go to the hospital. Why? Because he would had to pay for it on his own. And its rare for insurance companies to take on pro-wrestlers, so it would had been horrible for him. And TNA will help pay for it, but they would take cuts from their paycheck to pay for that. Thats the bad part. And in the end, Homicide still refused to go to the hospital. Its that bad. And the average TNA wrestler makes about $35,000 a year, but thats still pretty bad with travel and hospital expenses. The average pay for a WWE wrestler is around $120,000 and thats with the economic problem, so its still pretty good. So despite what people say about how great TNA is, the health plan stinks.

Here is a funny thing. Did you know, right now, WWE is paying for Scott Hall's rehab, and afterwards, Dixie Carter says when he is done, she would like to bring him back on TNA? Does anyone see anything wrong with this picture? Before you start saying Vince McMahon is the devil and Dixie Carter is a saint, consider the benefits of the wrestlers.
