The release of former TNA senior referee Rudy Charles (real name Dan Engler) was a cost cutting move by TNA reports The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The move surprised a lot of people within the company since he was popular with management and had been with the company since day one. Engler held many jobs with the company including working with the creative team. The feeling at this point is that the company has interest in hiring a local referee to replace him to save on transportation costs by using a referee who lives in Florida.
