Best TV announcer should have gone to JBL. J.R barely appears on TV anymore and when he does he sounds like he doesnt give a shit. This is coming from a huge Attitude Era mark.

Best Weekly Television Show: TNA Impact Wrestling


All the power to TNA but I was shocked to see the Wrestling Observer give them that award.

What's more surprising is that TNA won worst promotion despite Impact Wrestling winning best weekly television show.
