Did she?

I seem to recall Paige wanted out at Prodigy, missed some deadline to do so (a deadline that Ricky and Hokom managed to meet IIRC), and was stuck with Prodigy for another year against her desires. And she subsequently spent that year "secretly" throwing DD stuff and doing nothing to promote Prodigy.

Certainly appears to have been a totally different situation than a mutual and, per both sides, amicable cancelling of her long term deal with DD.

Yes, she broke her Prodigy contract. Technically she wasn't under contract when she signed with DD. I don't have a lot of other details beyond that. But, I confirmed that.

And amicable is a funny word. DD didn't want her to leave. PP wanted to leave. She was not under an official signed contract, just a verbal agreement. It does neither side any good to make a public stink.

Sorry, I wanted to clarify. She didn't leave her contract early, that was a mistake. With about a year left, she began to throw DD discs publicly and stopped fulfilling her Prodigy contract due to her being unhappy. But her contract was officially over when she began with DD.

Was there any sort of recourse Prodigy could have taken? Because honestly, it sounds like pro dg contracts are about as binding as a facial tissue (with a few exceptions).

Absolutely. I was hoping for a sig Stalker, but Hailey went with the Undertaker. Between a sig Stalker (which could very well be PP's) and Hammes' Wasp, I'd be broke when next season's sig discs come out, and that's without picking up the inevitable MJ '20 Comet.

Reading comprehension not your strong suit.

But good for you for jumping to conclusions. Your Call Out Culture membership packet will be in the mail.
