While Jim Ross shot down the rumors of his involvement with TNA, Dave Meltzer noted on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that the company has been in talks with announcers recently.

Wonder where this leaves Josh or Pope? An improvement anyway.

Josh Mathews makes a much better "B-Show" announcer. He was pretty decent when he was the play by play guy on Velocity. (I know, what's Velocity!?)

Make him the announcer for Xplosion and keep him involved in the website/YouTube channel and stuff.

Taz was just terrible, Josh is bad too. My money is on Striker. Nothing against Mike Tenay, but his time is passed. They need somebody fresh and new.

Matt Striker? TNA fans can be so stupid sometimes, I think he

1. Wants to get paid on time

2. Actually cover bigger and better promotions (NJPW, LU)

During the interview, Striker was asked if he would ever consider joining TNA Wrestling,

?Absolutely?, said Striker. ?If that opportunity came up, I?d be there in a heartbeat. I have a lot of friends there and I like wrestling.?

Taz wasn't bad. Perhaps you didn't like him but in terms of broadcasting he's good and he should be considering he's been doing it for about 15 years.

Yeah. But I don't see anyone good available for the job. Maybe Todd Keneley?
TNA has 2 guys under contract to replace Matthews (Borash and Tenay) and out there in the free agent pool you have Todd Kenely who I've always liked. A lot of those WWE guys who used to do the lesser shows are available as well and they're usually professionally trained broadcasters which could be a problem for TNA because they'd be competing with Radio and TV to get these guys.

Tony Schiavone please!
Apparently making six figures doing radio.

I do like the Pope announcing but I'd like to see him wrestle, I always said once TNA do a live show he will get involved in a match and that would be his way back into the ring and at BFG when his music hit I was buzzing but then he eliminated himself I was gutted haha! Mathews isn't that bad in my opinion but I'd like him to either play a heel or a face not both, pick one and stick to it. As to who I'd have if they were to both go, I'd go for Tod Kennley and one of Striker or Nash if he isn't to expensive.
