Major Update on Impact Wrestling’s Debut on Destination America; Josh Matthews to Replace Mike Tenay on Commentary?

josh-mathewsAccording to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, TNA is looking to make the January 7th edition of Impact Wrestling on Destination America a “reboot” for the series, as it heads into its 11th year on air. They are apparently working on new graphics and a visual change to the way the show is presented. 

Perhaps the biggest change is that former WWE announcer Josh Matthews will be replacing Mike Tenay, alongside Taz, as the new two-man commentary team for Impact every Wednesday. Matthews was let go by WWE earlier this year, and immediately signed with TNA as soon as his non-compete contact was up. They originally brought him in to be an announcer, and even relocated him to Nashville – where TNA headquarters is located – where he’s been working on various projects for the past few months, including a relaunch of the official company website.
