Ever since being fired by WWE -- or asking for his release, depending on what you believe -- Chavo Guerrero, Jr. has kept busy by wrestling for various independent promotions and staying active on Twitter.

Whether or not, that's a good thing is completely up to the individual reading them. Bitter? Or calling it like he sees it?

Regardless, I doubt he'll be discussing WWE anytime soon as it was announced earlier this morning Guerrero has signed with Impact Wrestling.

TNA has looked to bolster its X-Division, once their calling card, in the recent months and adding a veteran like the third generation wrestler can turn out to be a boon.

This isn't his first rodeo with the company either as he took part in their Indian project "Ring Ka King" late last year.

Their official announcement:


Third generation wrestling standout to debut in the ring Thursday, July 26, live on SPIKE TV!

TNA IMPACT WRESTLING's President Dixie Carter announced the signing of Chavo Guerrero, Jr. via twitter. He will make his IMPACT WRESLTING debut on Thursday, July 26 on SPIKE TV. This signing means that two members of the legendary Guerrero family are part of the TNA family; as Chavo is the nephew of TNA commentator Hector Guerrero. Tune in Thursdays at 8:00pm ET to catch IMPACT WRESTLING live on Spike TV.
Hailing from one of the more storied and successful families in the pro wrestling arena, the Guerrero family has racked up more championship titles and accolades than anyone. He is the son of Chavo, Sr. and his grandfather and patriarch of the Guerrero family, the late Gory Guerrero, is still one of the most famous wrestlers in Mexico.

Having competed all over the world for various promotions, Chavo has won a number of championship gold, including a tag-team gold with his late uncle Eddie Guerrero. Prior to signing with TNA, he appeared on the highly successful ratings giant Ring Ka King in India.

Check out their video announcement after the jump.
