Creative Team Member Resigns, Other ‘Key’ People Exit TNA

TNA Wrestling has undergone numerous changes recently, raising many questions about the company’s future operations. These developments have caused considerable concern within the professional wrestling community, highlighting the uncertain direction in which TNA is heading.

One of the most alarming changes was the ousting of Scott D’Amore, which sparked significant unrest. In response, some members of the TNA locker room signed an open letter urging the company to reconsider their decision. This move reflects the deep unease and desire for stability among the talent and staff.

In the new Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer detailed further significant developments behind the scenes. Robert Evans, a central figure on the creative team, resigned last week. Additionally, several other key personnel have been dismissed. Notably, there are no scheduled events beyond the tapings on August 2nd and 3rd in Tampa, indicating a possible hiatus or reorganization period.

PWInsider also reported that RD Evans, who served as both the head of creative and a producer, resigned from TNA last week. Furthermore, Dave Sahadi, the Creative Director, along with several members of the live events division, were dismissed. These departures signal a major shakeup within the company’s creative and production departments.

The timing of these changes is particularly interesting as TNA is rumored to be on the verge of a deal with WWE. Jordynne Grace is set to face Roxanne Perez for the NXT Women’s Title at Battleground in the UFC Apex on June 9, which is said to be just the beginning of crossover efforts between WWE and TNA. This potential collaboration adds another layer of intrigue to the ongoing developments within TNA Wrestling.
