Scott D’Amore is no longer the TNA Wrestling President.
Per PWInsider, TNA Wrestling President Scott D’Amore has been terminated by TNA parent company Anthem Sports and Entertainment.
According to this report, TNA talent and staff will be addressed today (February 7) regarding D’Amore’s firing.
It is believed that Anthem owner Len Asper made the decision to remove D’Amore from this role, according to the report.
Anthem is reportedly expected to play a larger role in the day-to-day management and strategies of TNA Wrestling moving forward, with the idea being that the two sides will have stronger synergy and maximise what each has to offer to the other.
In a new update, TNA Wrestling has now shared a statement on the appointment of Anthem President of Entertainment Anthony Cicione as the new TNA President.
The statement reads:
Anthem Sports & Entertainment Inc., a global multi-platform media company, announced today the appointment of Anthony Cicione as the President of TNA Wrestling.
The move aims to further integrate TNA Wrestling into Anthem’s Entertainment Group, of which Cicione is the President, leveraging the entire Company’s resources to add more value in areas including production, distribution, marketing, viewership, customer acquisition, digital revenue streams, ad sales and sponsorships, digital tech operations, and more.
Cicione replaces Scott D’Amore, whose contract with Anthem has been terminated. D’Amore has been a part of TNA since 2003. He held many key leadership positions and played a vital role in the growth of the company leading to its strong industry reputation today, including the successful return of the TNA Wrestling brand in 2024. Anthem thanks him for the commitment he brought to the business, the talent, and the people who work outside the ring.
In addition to these duties as President of Entertainment, Cicione will now manage the day-to-day business operations for TNA Wrestling. He brings more than 30 years of executive-level management experience to the organization. Cicione has been with Anthem for the last 16 years, managing technical operations and multiple cable and digital channels. Prior to his time with Anthem, Cicione was a producer of sports content including catapulting The Score to success by bringing WWE to the channel.
D’Amore became the President of TNA Wrestling in March 2023, following his previous stint as an Executive Vice President.
The promotion recently just returned to its TNA Wrestling branding, with the TNA name returning officially at January’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view.
We will provide more details on the situation as they become available.
