Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) is a wrestling promotion . TNA personnel consists of professional wrestlers, managers, play-by-play and color commentators, ring announcers, interviewers, referees, trainers, producers, script writers and various other positions. Executives and board of directors are also listed.

TNA contracts range from developmental contracts to multi-year deals. Personnel on the main roster appear on Impact Wrestling and TNA Xplosion (TNA's primary weekly television programming), on pay-per-views and at live events. Personnel are organized below by their role in TNA. Their ring name is on the left, and their real name is on the right. If someone is inactive for any reason, due to injury, suspension, not appearing in more than 30 days or otherwise, that information is noted. TNA refers to its female performers as "Knockouts".
