Moose has remained one of the highlights of TNA Wrestling ever since he made his debut in the company back in 2016. This is largely due to Scott D’Amore being a part of the system, but he got fired earlier this month. Moose has now admitted that he was angry over D’Amore’s firing from TNA.

The wrestling community was surprised by the sudden departure of Scott D’Amore from the position of TNA President. In this role, he had a significant impact on shaping the company’s direction, but he is no longer in charge.

While speaking in an interview with Jeremy Lambert & Joel Pearl on In The Weeds, Moose shared his initial feelings about Scott D’Amore’s dismissal from the company. He expressed shock, along with a mix of emotions such as upset and anger. Drawing from his experience in the NFL, Moose acknowledged the nature of head coaches getting fired in sports.

Despite the initial emotions, he emphasized the importance of putting faith in the general manager’s decisions and trusting that they are making the best choices for the company. Moose stressed the need for trust and commitment to ensure the success of TNA, acknowledging the investments made by Anthem.


“Initially, when I heard about it, I was shocked. I was upset, angry, sad, a bunch of emotions. At the same time, if anybody in the company can relate to something like that, I would probably be best suited because of my time in the NFL. I came from a world where head coaches get fired all the time. My rookie year, I got drafted by a guy who promised me a whole bunch of things, and he gets fired going into my second year. I had the same emotions. I was angry, pissed, upset. You just have to put faith in the general manager that they know what they’re doing. You have to trust that he is making the best decisions for the company.”

While acknowledging his close relationship with Scott, Moose stated that their connection remains unchanged, with Scott continuing to be a mentor and coach. Despite not working together, Moose believes Scott wishes the best for TNA and has confidence in the new leadership, including the new head coach Anthony and GM Len, to carry on the legacy.

Nobody wants to see TNA perish, especially Anthem because they invested so much money in it. As much as we don’t understand the decision, we have to trust it and put in 110%. Everyone knows my relationship with Scott, but my relationship with Scott is going to stay the same. He’s going to be my mentor, be my coach, a big brother to me.”

”It’s just, unfortunately, we’re not working with each other. Knowing Scott very well, I know he still wishes the best for TNA and he’s put together a roster that is going to carry on his work and his legacy. Now, we have a new head coach in Anthony and a GM in Len, and we have to put our trust and faith in them to carry the torch.”

Scott D’Amore’s departure from TNA had been in the works before the official announcement. Following his firing, another departure took place. The future of TNA Wrestling in 2024 remains uncertain, and only time will reveal the impact of these changes on the company.
