TNA fires Jarrett allies


05King of the Ring Savio Vega

Jason Powell’s is reporting that in the first of what is expected to be a series of firings, TNA has let go writer Dutch Mantell and road agent/producer Savio Vega, who were both considered to be members of Jeff Jarrett’s inner circle.  Obviously, this is believed to be part of Kurt Angle’s coup.  No word yet if they will go back to working in Puerto Rico or if Mantell will choose to retire so he can find Stan Hansen.

    What I want to know: who does Kurt Angle know that he can put in positions of power? I mean, is he really that close with Vince Russo that he is the de facto #1?

      Lucky for Dutch & Kwang that there’s always PR wrestling.
