According to Figure Four Weekly:
Former WCW star “Taskmaster” Kevin Sullivan reportedly met recently with TNA President Dixie Carter about joining the company’s creative team. During that meeting, Sullivan presented an angle that involves a year-long main event storyline that would require them signing a top star who the company would likely have difficulty getting.
We can also confirm that TNA did, in fact, quietly part ways with writer Ed Ferrara a few weeks ago. Ferrara left a teaching position and was brought into the company several months ago around the time that Jim Cornette not-so-quietly parted ways with them, in large part due to that hiring. Of course, Ferrara also served as Vince Russo’s right-hand man for the World Wrestling Federation during the Attitude Era.
This raises several questions, all of which aren’t worth the effort, but some of which I will list here because it looks better if I post some text of my own instead of just posting the story and leaving it at that. How long do you have to go without calling yourself something before everyone else stops calling you that thing? How long will it be before Sullivan falls asleep during a booking meeting? Was it really worth turfing Cornette when the dude you’re bouncing him for is only going to last a few months and make no positive contribution whatsoever?
