Don West Returning As On-Air Character, TNA Creative Update


source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— Don West will be returning as a on-air character during tonight’s edition of iMPACT! under the form of a “cheerleader-like” persona for Amazing Red. His gimmick is that he’s going to be a “promoter,” with the X Division Champion as his protégé. The persona is said to be an updated version of the colorful babyface manager, patterned after Col. Tom Parker of Elvis Presley fame. Also note, former WCW manager Col. Robert Parker was based on him.

— As expected, Ed Ferrara was officially added to the creative team this past week, joining Vince Russo and Matt Conway. Jeremy Borash is allowed to sit in during meetings, but he is not on the creative team as he’s always on the road.
