Quote Terry Taylor, TNA Wrestling's Director of Talent Relations, has resigned from his post with the organization.

TNA published the following statement on the company website: "Terry Taylor, TNA Director of Talent Relations, has decided to leave TNA effective May 31, 2011. TNA is grateful for Terry's contributions to TNA's growth and wishes him success in his future endeavors."

Dean Broadhead will oversee contractual matters while former WWE executive Bruce Prichard will handle Taylor's remaining duties.

Taylor had been with TNA since 2003 in a management role and served as head of talent relations for the majority of the organization's existence.

According to sources in TNA, Prichard is not well-liked by most wrestlers in the organization. He joined the organization last year in a backstage capacity after spending a number of years in WWE as Vince McMahon's "right hand man."
 
Normally I would greet this news enthusiastically.  But not with Bruce Prichard replacing him.  Prichard is just like Taylor.   They both have a long history in the business without any noteworthy success.  Both are just players in office politics and neither is a leader.

Bruce Prichard's on-screen role in WWF was Brother Love.

Ah, I remember him now. His voice annoyed me, and the guy seemed perminantly red for some reason.

But I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! The way I see this as not even news. It will make no difference to the production as they are both uncreative.

Good that he's gone. Hopefully TNA uses Prichard and that other dude in the interim until they find a guy with a fresh opinion on what a TNA wrestler should be as Taylor I think wasnt a great scout as TNA stopped hiring kids on the indy scene for the most part after 2004 ended

I don't really see the reason for the hate of Taylor, think about it if he was in TNA from 2003 until the present day he must have been doing something right, for anyone to last eight years in one company and one role for so long, that guy must have been doing right.  Don't forget he also over saw TNA's glory years 2005-07, now of course Taylor in his slight role may not have played a huge part in that, but he certainly must have helped.
 
Also I quite liked his as a wrestler, epsically as the Taylor Made Man in WCW, he was a very solid heel talent, and his tag team with Greg Valentine was effective, and his singles bouts with the likes of the Z-Man, Brian Pillman and Begwell were all decent, as was his match with Tito Santina in WWF.  Maybe he never quite had that IT Factor to go to the next level, but for me Taylor was a very solid performer in his day.
Lifes what you make it.

I choose to out think people, who are too dumb and pick on the rich.

To think WWF snapped him up rather than Mr. Perfect and gave him the Red Rooster gimmick.

Just because he didn't do anything drastically wrong (arguable anyway, considering he fired Jim Cornette) doesn't mean he did anything right either.

Mark Henry lasted a decade in WWE doing absolutely nothing, was he doing anything right?
