When TNA brought Josh Mathews in to replace Mike Tenay, they were hoping that a younger commentator could breathe some new life into Impact Wrestling as they make their way to Destination America. That is exactly what he accomplished. Management is said to be quite pleased with how the move has worked out. Mathews has done a solid job, and the show does have a fresh feeling after years of Tenay.

Once Mike Tenay was forced to turn down their offer because TNA officials reportedly felt that it was a conflict of interest, Jeff Jarrett looked at other candidates to join Jim Ross during the first GFW pay per view taking place in Japan next month. Several candidates were interviewed, and one of which really stood out above the rest. Kevin Nash was said to have been in discussion for the commentating job, but his focus right now is on Hollywood.
