David Lagana, TNA’s Senior Director of Creative Writing, announced that he has resigned from his post, five years after deciding to join the company.
“Today I made the decision to leave TNA Impact Wrestling. A decision I do not make lightly but one I made to create a future that I control,” Lagana wrote in a blog post. “In 2017, you need to look forward to 2020 and beyond. My focus now is on personal branding, technology and the wild west of storytelling available to all content creators today.”
Lagana thanked everyone at TNA including the locker room and the “talented and under appreciated” television production crew for the opportunity but never mentioned Dixie Carter once.
He said that over the past fifteen years of writing, producing and directing, he’s been very lucky to work with every major talent and learn from its brightest minds. He name dropped Vince McMahon, Paul Heyman, Dusty Rhodes, Pat Patterson, Gerry Brisco, Shawn Michaels, Paul Levesque, Michael Hayes, Brian Gewirtz, Adam Pearce, Hunter Johnson, Matt Conway, Billy Corgan, Vince Russo, Eric Bischoff, Bruce Prichard, Jeff Jarrett, and Dutch Mantel.
Lagana worked for WWE for six years between 2002 and 2008.
