There's certainly a chance this could eventually lead to a second shot at a GFW/TNA merger, but it seems more likely to be a backstage creative shakeup and response to the loss of Dave Lagana late last year. Mantell did write for TNA for years under Jarrett's watch, so he's returning to a familiar position, it seems. Part of me wonders if this olive branch might not extend to Scott D'Amore, as well, given his link to Jarrett as well? The good news is that it's also been reported, I believe by PWI, that the deal Jarrett has signed with TNA, as well as his agreement with GFW, prevent him from being an on-air performer. This is probably a good thing. TNA need to be using 2017 to focus on 2017, not 2007, so the less these types are seen is probably for the best.
