wrote:According to Pwinsider.com, Sonjay Dutt is done with TNA. The two sides were trying to come to terms on a new deal, and when they couldn't, Dutt opted to leave the promotion.

As of last week, TNA was still working on plans for Dutt, so they did not expect him to leave. Also, Dutt was essentially the face of TNA in India, where Impact had done very well on TV.

Dutt's profile has been removed from TNAwrestling.com, and as of now, there is no word on the future of SoCal Val, who had been Dutt's on air valet and love interest.

Well, honestly, I'm in a couldn't care less frame of mind with Sonjay. Petey Williams, now that's someone they could have kept around

Dutt has his moments. It feels weird that he's gone since he has been there for so long. If they keep getting rid of guys like Williams and bringing in the likes of Brutus Magnus (or whatever his name is) then TNA is going to lose the one really appealing thing it has left for me: the great roster.

It amazes me that guys like Williams and Dutt, who are young and have much upside, are gone yet the New Age Outlaws are still employed by the company

Williams would be a good fit with the current ECW roster. Williams vs. Bourne.

And with the WWE's current interest in the Indian market, Dutt would be a possibility. With Khali face, imagine a Khali/Dutt tag team.

411 said something about WWE showing interest in Dutt. They should make it happen, if they treat him the way they have with Bourne, Dutt could do good things for them.

Dutt is small and East Indian. He is doomed to obscurity in the WWE.

I could see them picking up Dutt and repackaging him as a combo of "Slumdog Millionaire" meets "The Wrestler". But the shelf life of that gimmick has about one month left.

It'd be at least as successful as Jimmy Wang Yang

Well there you go. Sign him up, so that gimmick, as soon as the shelf life is over cut him and wish him the best in his future endeavors.

I'm surprised no one in TNA thought to go all Slumdog on Dutt. That seems like the type of shameless tie-in they'd be all over.
