Scott D’Amore is out at TNA Wrestling.

Parent company Anthem Sports & Entertainment has announced that D’Amore’s contract with the company has been terminated with no reasoning provided in its press release.

Anthony Cicione, who has been with the company for over fifteen years at an executive level, will assume the role of TNA president moving forward.

From the press release:

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’s history with TNA goes back to 2003 as an on-screen talent and member of its creative staff and had several tenures in the company. In 2017, he was named one of the company’s executive vice presidents alongside Don Callis.

Callis left the company in May 2021 and currently works with AEW.

D’Amore was promoted to president of TNA in March 2023, which just underwent a rebranding last month.

POST Wrestling has reached out to D’Amore for a statement, he was not quoted in the press release that TNA issued.
