Update on the TNA creative shake up
Feb 13, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck
What precipitated the creative shake up TNA last week? Apparently, Vince Russo being removed from as head writer had been in the works for some time, but what cleary didn’t help Russo’s status was the lower than expected ratings from the 2/2 and 2/9 Impact shows that were pre-taped in London. There was a feeling that the bigger building would make the product look more major league and hopefully boost the rating.
The feeling is that Russo was gradually losing power with Bruce Prichard added to the creative team, however, Dixie Carter had always been enamored with Russo. The belief is that if Russo is officially gone from the company, it was Russo’s decision and not forced out by Carter.
