Bruce Prichard has replaced Vince Russo as the TNA creative team’s head writer. Prichard also heads the talent relations department. Russo is now considered basically a senior writer, continuing to write the actual shows along with Matt Conway, once the direction has been mapped out by Prichard, who also signs off on the scripts.
Although they’ve been heading to this change for a couple of months, the move became official within the last week or so. There are people within the company who aren’t happy to see Prichard gain so much power this early in his run with the company, primarily due to his reputation for playing political games during his WWE run. However, if the last few weeks of improved television are any indication, this is a good move as far as the television product is concerned.
