- It was reported in The Wrestling Observer Newsletter this week that TNA announcer Mike Tenay, who hasn't been used regularly in months, will see his TNA contract expire at the end of the year. Tenay has been with the company since they began.
Tenay recently spoke with Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard blog to promote his sports betting podcast "Professor Vegas" and it was noted in the article that he is still employed and under contract but could not reveal whether or not he will be a part of TNA's live POP TV debut in January. Tenay commented:
"That hasn't been discussed with me. I think it's great that TNA, in a very competitive time, found that outlet for Impact Wrestling. There is an absolutely terrific group of very talented people who still have the ability to ply their trade and make a living because of that, and it's fantastic for everybody involved."
