TNA late on paying talent

So Scott… in your opinion, how are things in TNA? Fabulous? Fantastic? Perhaps some other "F" word? 

Meltzer actually talked about it on the last show, and while the payroll problems are slightly exaggerated, it's not a good sign.  More troubling for TNA is that Destination America basically has full control over the show and content and purse strings, and they're now cancelling shows left and right.  And given that TNA hasn't exactly been the smashing success that was hoped for by the network, it could be a short relationship between them.  
 

TNA paying wrestlers late

So they're starting to release seldom-used talent to save money because it's costing them more money to be on the road, and they're also paying wrestlers up to two months late.

Is TNA in worse shape than we knew? What good is having ratings that Spike loves if they're going to have to cut talent down to the bone to be able to successfully tour and they can't even run regular monthly Pay-Per-Views?
Hogan and Bischoff don't come cheap.  I wouldn't call it much of a surprise, given that we've known for a while that TNA was late paying talent and creditors and yet there was still this bizarre urban legend about them being profitable.  TNA exists only by the grace of Panda Energy and Spike TV, and it's been that way for years now.
