Backstage News On Mike Tenay's TNA Status, Why Did Jim Ross Contact Top TNA Officials?

- Mike Tenay has reportedly agreed to his new one-year TNA deal that will see him stay on TV but no longer bet he lead announcer on Impact Wrestling. As noted, Josh Mathews will be replacing him.

On a related note, Jim Ross recently contacted TNA's John Gaburick and possibly Dixie Carter to pitch the idea of Tenay calling the big New Japan Pro Wrestling Tokyo Dome event, that is co-branded with Jeff Jarrett' global Force Wrestling. Ross pitched that TNA would be plugged during the show in exchange for allowing Tenay to work but the idea was turned down.
