– News of Scott D’Amore returning to TNA has not been well received by all in the lockerroom. While D’Amore is widely praised for his work as an agent for the Knockouts division, he also has a negative reputation for being a political power player, according to PWTorch sources. The D’Amore return appears to be evidence of Dixie Carter acting more independently than in the past, as a TNA source says that numerous people advised her against re-hiring D’Amore.
