Major Creative Change Takes Place In TNA; Vince Russo Out

Jason Powell of ProWrestling.NET reports that Vince Russo has been demoted from his job as head writer of Total Non-Stop Action. Former WWE talent/agent/writer Bruce Prichard (Brother Love) has taken over for Russo, who now works with Matt Conway in script coordination. Some are alleged to be unhappy with the move, as Prichard has amassed a bit of backstage power in a short amount of time. The change, however, had been expected for months. Russo was named as head writer of TNA in the fall of 2006, after taking a two year hiatus from the company to join the ministry and pursue other endeavors.
