Reports indicate that Kurt Angle is still telling friends that it’s only a matter of time before he takes over the TNA creative team. Very few people within the company actually believe he will become the new booker. At this time, the TNA creative team is Vince Russo and Matt Conway, with contributions from Jeremy Borash. Thus far no one else has been added to the team, which is currently without it’s leader Jeff Jarrett TNA’s agents have come under fire as of late due to lackluster match finishes, among other things. Former staff Savio Vega and Dutch Mantel were basically in charge of the Knockouts division, and TNA management feels the division has suffered greatly since the release of former agent Scott D’Amore.
