Jeff Jarret released from TNA

It appears as of this afternoon that Jeff Jarrett is out. Dutch Mantel was there to take care of Jarrett's interest, and to make sure he got his way creatively. Carter has to cut him, and the people like him who are there in Jarrett's' best interest, and not Carter's company, so that they don't try to undercut her efforts to send the company in a new creative direction. That's an old game - keep the new regime off point to prepare for the return of the old way.

-- PWTorch audio                      

It's not 100% confirmed until the other news sites starts reporting it but after yesterday's firings, I'm pretty damn sure it's legit.

 Now, I won't have to hear him say "As the founder of TNA" in every single sentence anymore. Dixie Carter is the new Goldberg.

This is fucking insane if this is true.

Looking at the moves Dixie has been making, next to go should be BG/Kip James as neither have done anything of note in a long time, and they are just getting a paycheque for doing nothing.

It's all fine and dandy them making cut after cut but if they don't have anyone lined up to replace them then they could end up in a worse position than they started in. If they are making changes then they need to shake things up from the very top, all the way down to the bottom. Out with the old (literally) and in with the new. Be something new, give people a reason to want to tune in.

When I posted the the story about Dutch being released I put my views and said that big things were going to happen... And they are. When Mantell was released I knew Jarrett was fucked..

TAG TEAM EXCELLENCE!

They obviously do have backup, It would make no sense to release them unless they have someone to back them up.

Jarret was head booker since his release or whatever you want to call it, Vince Russo is now taking his place as head booker.

Jeremy Borash is now apart of the creative team. Most likely, temporary.

Well I'm not to sure on that one Axel, I'm pretty sure I read something about Russo's job being on the line too and sooner or later I have a feeling that he's gonna to get canned. Or at very least moved out of that head booker posisition.

But honestly, I'm glad to see that TNA is making these kind of big moves. The way the company has been going lately it's pretty much just been in a stalemate for the last few years. Hopefully with Jarrett's creative control out of the way it will open the doors for some fresh faces in the main event.

Only problem now is making  sure Russo doesn't last too long as head booker. If TNA wants someone good, they should start looking into trying to get  Heyman  to sign a deal.

Heyman would be good but it's risky, see why here:

There is a feeling among friends of Paul Heyman that he would accept a position with TNA if he had power beyond just writing the shows. Heyman apparently feels TNA needs an overhaul both on the talent side and in the office but doesn

Well it remains to see if they do have backup, I guess we will see in time once everything is cleared up. Right now it just seems as if they're clearing out the Jarret Boys.

Also, placing Vince Russo as head booker is hardly a replacement. Amongst the IWC the guy is pretty much loathed and blamed for the vast majority of shit in TNA and that was just as a booker, now your promoting to head booker where presumably he will have the largest say in what goes on.

Is it just me who thinks the topic title is highly misleading as nobody else has reported that Jarrett has actually been released from TNA?

He is out of the company, apparently instead of it being his "release" to avoid any sort of turmoil, they said he stepped down from his position when he was actually forced out.

plus the guns haven't been on impact as of late and neither has daniels. not to mention victory road might have been the worst PPV i ever seen and i think Russo booked that too.

Russo did book the PPV but it was Jarret who originally booked it and his suspension made everyone had to change the whole PPV at the very last minute which is why Victory Road sucked.

Believe it or it, Blacklash 2009 was the worst PPV. Victory Road comes in second place.

Blacklash? Is that like Bobby Lashley's new nickname? :lol

oh my god that was the first good prax post in months! (Y)

but onto axel. Backlash had some good matches victory road didn't

backlash had

Ricky Steamboat vs Chris Jericho (steamboat doing a lot better than any of the old TNA guys)
Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy
Edge vs Cena in the last man standing
Jack Swagger vs Christian

then punk vs Kane wasn't bad it was just bad booking.
and i don't really remember the 6 man tag but with triple h losing the title that alone had to be enjoyable.

the only bad thing on there was probably the kahli kiss cam but that had to be better than sharmell vs jenna's shitfest.

so i suggest you go back and re-watch backlash because it had some good matches on it while victory road had nothing but shit. not 1 good match on the card and the only thing that was ok was AJ vs nash and Beer money vs Booker & Steiner.
