Backstage News On The TNA Creative Team

Ryan Clark

Dutch Mantell writes the TNA TV shows and PPVs and not Vince Russo as many people would tend to think. Russo just offers some ideas sort of like a consultant according to Russo is also said to have a few “pet projects” in VKM, Christy Hemme and Ron Killings.

Mantell also has a few “pet projects” in Robert Roode, Eric Young and Abyss. According to Wade Keller, Abyss always follows Mantell around backstage and is seen by some as his shadow. Abyss has also rubbed some people the wrong way at times by always asking “how did I do” after every match and promo.

Jeff Jarrett only works on the booking and gives the final “OK” on everything.
