In a move that’s reportedly been planned for months, Vince Russo has been removed from his position as the head of TNA’s creative team. Russo will remain a contributing member of the creative team, alongside his protege Matt Conway.

ProWrestling.nt reports that Bruce Prichard, who also handles TNA’s talent relations, has taken Vince Russo’s old position as the creative leader. Prichard will now have final say on the scripts and overall direction of the company’s shorelines and characters.

There are mixed emotions regarding the move within the locker room, as Bruce Prichard hasn’t been in TNA that long.
