    According to several TNA Impact Wrestling talents, the wrestlers were recently told not to address their complaints about the company directly with TNA President Dixie Carter, but rather to observe a new protocol in the company by going through Bruce Prichard first.


    Prichard, who agreed to start with the company on a trial basis, has already replaced Vince Russo as head of creative, and is seen by many as being in control of the company right now.


    "He's maneuvered himself past (Eric) Bischoff, past (Vince) Russo, and in some ways he's even maneuvered himself past Dixie herself," a key TNA insider told us this evening. "The wrestlers were in shock that Prichard wants them to come to him first before they are even allowed to go to Dixie Carter. He's isolated her from the boys so she can't hear their complaints. Bischoff plays the good company man, but he's surprised by this right now, and so is everyone else."

    HUGE NEWS!!!!!

    It's been hard keeping track of who's actually in charge of the TNA creative department. Over the last two years Vince Russo, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and Bruce Pritchard have all been linked to the position of being the man in charge of the creative storylines. One thing is for sure, Russo is no longer that man. In fact, he's no longer a part of the creative team altogether. According to a Sunday February 12th report by WrestleZone.com, Vince Russo is no longer as member of the TNA creative team as he has been ousted from his position.


    Former WWE creative personality Dave Lagana has replaced Russo. Lagana has recently been working on TNA's overseas promotion Ring Ka King in India. Apparently, TNA management felt that he was doing a great job with Ring Ka King and no longer believed in Russo's creativity.


    TNA has suffered from inconsistent booking over the last few years especially after Hogan and Bischoff came on board. The two men dominated the storylines both on TV and behind the scenes. It's unclear as to what Hogan's role is with the company. Additionally, it's a bit confusing as to what Bruce Pritchard's role is as well. Perhaps, if TNA can clear up the roles of these men, they can get back to putting on compelling TV which they were doing for the first 7 years of their existence.

    There are some corrections to report regarding the TNA creative shake-up.


    Wade Keller of PWTorch.com is reporting that Vince Russo's exit from TNA is not 100% confirmed, however the belief is that he is off the creative team, and will not be retained by the promotion in any capacity. Keller goes on to speculate that Eric Bischoff is part of a group responsible for getting Russo removed.


    Dave Lagana, however, is not taking over TNA creative, as WrestleZone initially reported. Lagana has personally downplayed taking over in any way for Russo. As of now, Bruce Prichard remains as head of the creative staff, a position he has held since earlier in the fall of 2011.


    Lagana, however, has taken a hands-on role in assisting with pre-taped segments, and is present tonight at Against All Odds to assist, and remains with Ring Ka King, overseeing the entire production. Russo, however, is NOT at the PPV.


    As of now, Prichard oversees creative and takes input from Bischoff, while writer Matt Conway remains on staff as a script writer. Russo, before his alleged dismissal, was working with Conway on scripts.

    TNA and Vince Russo have mutually parted ways as of this week. The separation is amicable and professional. We are glad for the opportunity to have worked together and wish each other nothing but good luck and success in the future.

    Shannon Moore is taking a break from wrestling. He says he is not retiring.



    :
    "Before someone gets it and twist it. I've decided to step away from wrestling for awhile," he wrote. "I'm putting effort into my own business. Thanks for your support in the ring but for now I am chill'n at home opening my second tat shop and enjoying my family."


    He continues, "Or am I working you…. Who know the wrestling secret talk… Lol…. love you guys peace!!!"

    Congrats to TNA for their new 2 year deal with SpikeTV.


    SPIKE TV AND TNA ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCE MULTI-YEAR EXTENSION TO ITS STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP


    The Highly-Rated "Impact Wrestling" Maintains Its Home On Spike TV On Thursday Nights


    Spike TV and TNA Entertainment have agreed upon a multi-year extension on their strategic partnership, maintaining Spike TV as the exclusive U.S. television home of the emerging sports-entertainment property.


    The deal was announced today jointly by Kevin Kay, Spike TV President and Dixie Carter, TNA Entertainment President. TNA wrestling debuted on Spike TV in July, 2005. Over the last seven years, the ratings for TNA's "IMPACT Wrestling" have grown from an average of 700,000 viewers at launch to nearly two million today.


    "Dixie Carter and her team at TNA have done a phenomenal job in developing stars for an exciting, high-action brand that resonates with Spike's audience," said Kay. "We are excited to further our partnership and will continue to build and invigorate the franchise together."


    "We are thrilled that Spike TV will be IMPACT Wrestling's home for years to come," said Carter. "The dedication that Kevin Kay and the network have shown us in building our brand is what makes this announcement even more meaningful for me. And look for some exciting things to happen on IMPACT in the near future."


    TNA's flagship series, "IMPACT Wrestling," airs weekly on Spike TV and is one of the network's top-rated series. The show has evolved into must-see-tv on Thursdays with young men and currently ranks among the top shows on cable in its timeslot with Men 18-34.


    The roster features many of the biggest names in wrestling including Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Booby Roode, Sting, James Storm, Rob Van Dam the lovely and lethal Knockouts.

    VIP Ink Publishing signs Pro Wrestler, A.J. Styles (Allen Jones), for an autobiography. A.J. Styles is an American professional wrestler currently working for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). Styles is one of three wrestlers to have worked continuously for the company since its first broadcast on June 19, 2002. Since he joined TNA, Styles has been a four-time World Heavyweight Champion. He has held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship three times and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship once, the very first TNA X Division Champion, while also sharing the record for most reigns (six) with Jay Lethal. With having won the TNA X Division, NWA World Tag Team, and NWA World Heavyweight Championships, Styles was the first to complete the TNA Triple Crown Championship. Styles would later complete the Triple Crown three more times, making him the only man to complete it more than once. His victory over Booker T for the TNA Legends (now Television) Championship made him the first man to have ever won the TNA Grand Slam Championship, which he has done twice. Also, he is the only wrestler in TNA to have held every male championship owned and sanctioned by TNA at any point during the company's history. All totaled, he has won eighteen championships in TNA. In 2010, he became the first TNA contracted wrestler to rank in at #1 on Pro Wrestling Illustrated annual PWI 500 list.


    Styles' autobiography will cover his life from both in and outside the ring. His autobiography will highlight being brought up in a military family that struggled with poverty and alcoholism. Styles is a devoted Christian and has stated on many occasions that "Its God first and family second." This autobiography will have his fans gasping for more, as they will be able to appreciate Styles' life from his severe beginnings to his TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
