PostSubject: The Individual Now Responsible For Hiring TNA Talent   Wed 26 Feb 2014, 4:08 pm

WZ has learned from sources that TNA has promoted Bob Ryder to be the executive in charge of finding and acquiring new talent for TNA Impact Wrestling. Ryder's previous role had him in charge of talent booking and travel schedules for appearances.

This is significant as one source described the reaction from those in TNA as "laughable" given that Ryder has no experience ever being a wrestler and is being relied upon to handle the acquisition of new TNA talent. The move is being compared to a guy who plays fantasy football transitioning to being the General Manager of an NFL team.

Ryder's other past ventures include working with WCW's website before the company was purchased by Vince McMahon.

It's believed the decision came from "Big" John Gaburick who is currently listed as Executive Vice President of Television Production for TNA Entertainment.

Why is it Laughable, Why is it sad? Remember JR was once in that SAME exact position and was responsible for Hiring some of the best Talent WWE has, this just looks like another story for people to point fingers at "Oh TNA is doing this wrong too" when JR was head of finding new Talent for years and has never been a trained wrestler himself.

He is also the one who handles bookings for the talent so he clearly works with the talent on a regular basis so knows who works and who doesn't fit in the company to some extent.
