TJ Perkins announced that TNA is not renewing his contract. He noted on Twitter that he was not told why the company opted against renewing his deal, and added that he is open to returning. Perkins had been wrestling as Manik. Follow him online at Twitter.com/MaskaraManik.
Powell’s POV: I never saw anything in the Manik character and cringed whenever I saw him wrestling in a hooded outfit. However, I do see something in TJ Perkins minus the mask and feel that the company missed out by not having him wrestle without the silly Manik persona.
