Santino Marella (Anthony Carelli) has signed with Impact Wrestling and will serve as the new Director of Authority.
Marella was introduced as Impact’s new Director of Authority at Hard To Kill and replaces Scott D’Amore in the role as the new on-screen authority figure for the promotion.
The move comes after Scott D’Amore was injured in storyline by Bully Ray on Thursday’s show.
Impact filed the trademark for Marella’s name a few weeks ago. He has worked as a host for IMPACT in the past under the name Anthony Carelli.
