UPDATE: An official at Anthem confirmed the departures to POST Wrestling while adding that “[Robert] Evans was not terminated.” 

TNA has seen several departures this week including its creative director, according to reports.

Anthem Sports & Entertainment and TNA have gone through some cutbacks, according to Mike Johnson of

Among the cuts is David Sahadi, who served as the promotion’s creative director and has a longstanding history within the company. Sahadi worked with the World Wrestling Federation throughout the ‘90s and left the company in 2003 after more than a decade with the promotion.

Sahadi joined TNA in the summer of 2004 when it was airing on Fox Sports Net and worked as a producer as TNA ascended its profile by leaping to Spike TV one year later and adding additional hours of original programming on the network.

Since 2006, he has served as a director, a producer, and was named creative director in October 2019.

Johnson reports that creative team member Robert “RD” Evans is also leaving the company, although it’s unknown if he was let go or was a mutual decision. The site states that the relationship between Evans and the company had “grown strained” over the last several weeks. After wrestling for fifteen years, Evans joined the WWE creative staff in 2016 and worked there for three years.

The cutbacks extended to the live events department with several cuts, according to Johnson.
