– Matt Morgan deleted a series of Twitter messages he posted on Twitter Monday revealing his displeasure with TNA Wrestling. He had written, “hey man, what can I say? SOMEONE in that lockeroom had to stand up to Tna front office and call them out for over-promising, & under delivering. So when my deal was up I said ‘why not me?!’ Accountability. Who says u can’t go home again? Lol.”

    Thats not how valuation works. Market value would be dictated by a lot of things, not just that its “ring used”. And saying it doubles in value is just guess work.
    Simple fact is, when it comes to insurance all that would factor in the value would be how much it costs to replace as there is no official value on a used TNA belt.

  • Bmark

    yeah nearly 3 grand but they forgot is a RING USED belt wich doubles his colection value

    Now TNA will really look stupid if they lied about the incident.
