TNA has announced they had decided to postpone their upcoming Tour in India. The cited reason are logistics and safety issues, TNA talents were to fly into Paris, then India as part of the booked travel arrangements.
TNA doesn’t have any live events scheduled until January, and talents are now scrambling to fill in dates. Several sources report some TNA roster members were understandably upset with this sudden announcement, noting that they were depending on this paycheck from the India tour, and this was the same thing that happened with a cancelled tour of China.
TNA issued following statement:
