Former TNA star Jesse Sorensen publicly claimed online that TNA President Dixie Carter had promised him he would "always have a job" after he had broken his neck competing for the company at its Against All Odds 2012 PPV.

In a post Sorensen made on while launching a campaign for fans to donate $600 that would allow him to compete in an upcoming bodybuilding competition, Sorensen wrote the following:

"I am a former professional wrestler for TNA Impact Wrestling seen every Thursday night on SpikeTV. On Feb. 12th 2012 during a live match on pay per view vs Zema Ion I suffered a severe neck injury sustaining a broke C-1 vertebrae & herniated C-5 & C-6. After a long recovery process & being promised by the President of TNA Impact Wrestling TNA Dixie Carter I would always have a job with her company, I recently was released from my current contract & shown that those promises were false."

Sorensen had been working as a production assistant for the company since he was injured before being released today in the latest financial cutback from the company.

As noted earlier, Sorensen had been paid far above what someone in that position would regularly have been paid, likely as a way for the company to help him financially after he broke his neck working for them.

Sorensen's campaign has already raised several hundred dollars en route to a hoped for $600. For more on the campaign, click here.

Dixie Carter, who has been soliciting fan questions of late via Twitter, has not commented on Sorensen's release.
