Mike Tenay and Don West are set to be inducted into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame this year, as Pwinsider reports that several Impact executives and wrestlers came out to witness the announcement at Victory Road on Friday night.
The entire ambiance was said to be an “emotional scene.”
Tenay will attend the induction ceremony but West’s wife won’t be able to. However, she gave Impact Wrestling her blessing to induct her late husband.
Chief Corporate Officer of Anthem Sports & Entertainment, Ed Nordholm, was at Victory Road on Friday night.
In addition, there was some interest in using Little Guido Maritato at tonight’s Impact 1000 TV tapings, but he had a family commitment.
ODB, who had been advertised for today’s fan fest, will also be unable to attend.
Some talent reportedly had issues with flight delays when trying to reach the White Plains airport due to the weather in different areas of the country. However, the talent somehow managed to make it to the shows this weekend.
Jason Hotch will miss this weekend’s shows as he is expecting his first child.
And finally, former Impact World Champion Josh Alexander will work the UK tour next month.
