What possibly went wrong between Scott D’Amore and TNA Wrestling that led to his firing

On Wednesday, it was announced that Scott D’Amore has been fired from his role as TNA Wrestling president. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com discussed what possibly went wrong between D’Amore and TNA’s parent company Anthem…

“I think that he (Scott D’Amore) thought that, it’s time, you know, to spend some more money, try go after more talent. Try to build this (TNA) thing up, we have a little bit of momentum, & the Anthem people were kind of like ‘we don’t wanna increase the budget’ and maybe even wanted to cut back on the budget, but definitely didn’t wanna increase the budget. And it was just a stand-off and that’s kinda what happened. He’d always been trying to get a bigger budget and he’d always been rebuffed.”

“It was coming back, it was getting more popular, but their whole thing was to just have a product, tape television. Fulfill your pay-per-views, your streaming stuff, and do it as cheaply as possible. And you know whether that is the reason of the split that they, you know, that was it, or there was some other thing that we don’t know. I’m sure it’ll be out in the next couple of days. That was one thing that I had heard from people is that was a dispute he had with management.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlePurists.com and SEScoops.com)
