The only thing I can think of would be if when they released him from his contract, they banned him from doing certain things for the length of the contract and writing a book would be on that list

Reason was implied because of TNA having a show on the same night which could confirm rumors of him signing a deal with them.

An idea going around was to bring back older guys who can still go to put over the younger guys after the brand split when they need more bodies for television. He would fit the criteria. Even though he dates back to the glory era of the business, he started young and he’s only 35 now. He was a very good worker but got out of wrestling to start a new business, “Jimmy’s Pest Control,” in Cincinnati

The replay drew 39,000 viewers, bringing the total number of viewers for this week's show to 143,000. This was down a whopping 35% from last week's show, which totaled 219,000 viewers. Last week's replay drew 103,000 viewers.

The show once again did not rank on the Cable Top 150 in the 18-49 demo for the sixth week in a row.
Last week's replay ended up having the highest numbers in the show's history.

The most viewed clip of the match on Dailymotion has about 15,400 views. These videos were all posted Tuesday night or Wednesday. TNA's official account only uploaded the video Thursday.

Based on a formula used to estimate YouTube ad revenue, 500,000 views could be worth between $500 and $1000, which may not be huge money, but a company in financial distress like TNA needs all the revenue it can get.

He said they never sent him a dime and abandoned him for a month in Nuevo Laredo and nobody from the office called him, nor did anyone return any of his messages. He said he was broke and his friends in the area took him in and helped him as he recovered from the ankle surgery. He said that after more than a month stuck in Nuevo Laredo he was finally able to get enough money to pay to return home. He talked about how happy he was in 2013 when he started working in AAA, but claimed he would have to travel in sub-human conditions, wouldn’t be given any food for days when he’d be traveling and many times wouldn’t be paid anything after because he was a low card guy. AAA has said nothing in response
