TNA parent company Anthem S&E begins layoffs at The Fight Network

Last night, The Fight Network MMA reporter and color commentator Robin Black announced on his Facebook that Anthem Sports & Entertainment, the parent company of Impact Wrestling and The Fight Network, has started laying off employees and cutting back on original programming on the Fight Network.

“And just like that, life changes. I got a few calls yesterday about big cuts at Fight Network, about friends being let go. I was sad and scared for them. Then the call came in to me. Heavy scaling back of originally-produced content. Down-sizing. After 8 years, my job is being eliminated,” Black wrote.

While it’s not clear how much Anthem paid to take over Impact Wrestling, the timing of the layoffs will certainly raise some eyebrows in the industry.
