Anthem Sports & Entertainment appointed Scott D’Amore and Don Callis as Executive Vice Presidents of Impact Wrestling. The two will be reporting to Ed Nordholm and together they will form a 3-member Executive Committee with overall responsibility for developing the creative direction for Impact Wrestling and managing the execution of the Company’s business plan.
Don Callis, who was previously better known as Cyrus and The Jackal, has worked both as a commentator and part of creative for WWE, ECW, and TNA. He is presently the color commentator for New Japan Pro Wrestling, a role that he will retain.
Scott D’Amore has done pretty much everything in the wrestling business and is one of the TNA Originals, having worked for the company since its first days till 2010 and then again from 2014 onwards.
“I am excited that Don and Scott have made this commitment to the Company,” said Ed Nordholm, president of Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC. “The 50 years of experience and success in the wrestling industry brought by Don and Scott, combined with the global media, marketing, sales and financial expertise of Anthem, provide the management depth and expertise that will propel IMPACT Wrestling to greater success as we continue to expand our footprint, embrace digital opportunities and grow the brand.”

On the one hand, you have two quite creative guys..on the other hand, it's more and more turning into a Canadian independent fed with a good tv deal (for now)
If turning into a Canadian independent fed with a few bigger stars means that TNA can begin to turn things around, I'm all for it. I don't care where someone is from as long as they can put on a show. It's probably better that they move away from the stigma that they've had for so long of grabbing any WWE castoff and making them champ (though I don't think they've really done this as much recently).

Well they got away from it for a little while but I guess they saw how well putting the top title on a shitty WWE midcard guy worked out for ROH and are gonna give it another shot.
