Posted on 2/08/124 by Colin Vassallo



New TNA President Anthony Cicione issued a long statement to
the wrestling press after his appointment in place of Scott
D’Amore.

His full statement is as follows:

I am excited and honored to be the new President of TNA
Wrestling, a company rich in tradition and loved by pro
wrestling fans worldwide.

This move is intended to further integrate TNA Wrestling
into the Entertainment Group of Anthem Sports &
Entertainment as we work to leverage the resources of the
entire company to add more value in areas such as
production, distribution, marketing, viewership, customer
acquisition, digital revenue streams, ad sales and
sponsorships, and digital tech operations, among others.

Everyone at Anthem Sports & Entertainment is appreciative of
and thankful for the years of dedication that Scott D’Amore
gave to Anthem, and TNA Wrestling. Scott has been a part of
TNA since 2003, holding many key roles. He played a vital
role in the growth of the company and the evolution to its
strong industry reputation today, including the 2024 return
of the TNA Wrestling brand itself.

I personally want to thank Scott for the passion he brought
to the business and his personal touch with talent. TNA
Wrestling is in a position to take a big leap toward its
next stage of growth and expansion.

While we can create more operational efficiency the most
exciting part is expanding existing revenue streams and
developing new ones. Wrestling promotions have evolved from
event driven businesses to global media enterprises.

I was in Las Vegas last month for both the Hard To Kill pay-
per-view and the next night’s Snake Eyes show. Those were
not just the two best pro wrestling shows I have attended,
they were record-setting for TNA Wrestling on multiple
fronts. That growth, expansion and popularity that thousands
witnessed live and in- person in Las Vegas, and live on pay-
per-view around the world, will continue in 2024. We have
many exciting, groundbreaking announcements coming up over
the next few months. Our momentum is continuing.

TNA Wrestling features an incredible roster of in-ring
talent who will continue to shine and deliver incredible
matches and moments. We have a behind-the-scenes crew and
staff who are incredible at their jobs. Our business is
being run by experienced professionals, and the fans will
notice many improvements in the coming months.

TNA’s success is attributable to its teamwork, and that team
will continue to grow with more input from Anthem’s top
executives, partners and others.

We know departures of well-respected executives can create
uncertainty, but we are fully committed to this new business
model. We are entering a new stage of growth. These changes
bring together more leadership experience to help us elevate
our operations.
