TNA Wrestling recently underwent significant changes with the termination of Scott D’Amore’s contract and the appointment of Anthony Cicione as the new president. However, the restructuring didn’t end there, as former Impact Wrestling President Ed Nordholm is also no longer associated with TNA.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Nordholm, who had been working with the company through his role in Anthem Sports & Entertainment, was replaced as President by D’Amore a year ago. Despite his continued involvement with Anthem, Nordholm’s departure from TNA coincided with D’Amore’s, indicating a direct correlation between the two events.

Nordholm’s influence on TNA’s decision-making process was notable, particularly in his advocacy for making offers to high-profile talents such as CM Punk and Will Ospreay. While these efforts ultimately didn’t materialize into signings for TNA, they shed light on the company’s ambitious pursuit of top-tier talent.

Additionally, there were initial plans to upgrade Impact’s studios in Nashville, but these improvements have yet to materialize. The lack of progress on this front coincides with the departure of both Nordholm and D’Amore from TNA. It’s reported that while Nordholm and D’Amore were in favor of investing more resources into TNA, Anthem’s reluctance to allocate additional funds hindered these plans.


How do you think the departure of key figures like Scott D’Amore and Ed Nordholm will impact the future direction of TNA Wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
