TNA is under new ownership, and while the first set of tapings since the deal didn’t show much difference, it seems that’s about to change.

Reports coming out of PWInsider suggest that Anthem is “restructuring” the company, though the extent of the plans are as yet unknown. Changes to the TNA executive team are rumored, but again, the details are unknown. Of course, that’s aside from Dixie Carter, who has already stepped down from TNA creative.

There’s also TNA founder Jeff Jarrett, who returned to the company as a consultant, according to the Wrestling Observer (subscription required). Jarrett is still running Global Force Wrestling, and was in Los Angeles for related meetings this week. Dutch Mantel, best known to modern wrestling fans as Zeb Colter, is also in as a creative consultant.

Knockout Marti Belle has also left the company following the expiration of her contract, returning to independent promotions.


The first few Anthem-owned episodes of Impact have neither been terrible nor great–just sort of there. TNA has certainly been in worse positions, but it will take more than adequacy for Impact to be seen as a viable wrestling program, and Anthem has their work cut out for them when in comes to changing public perception.
