Todd Keneley loses his announcing job with TNA

New, comments

Todd Keneley will no longer be an announcer for TNA shows, as the company has decided to go back to the two man team of Mike Tenay and Tazz.

Well that experiment didn't last long, did it?

It wasn't that long ago that TNA wanted to replicate one of the ideas Eric Bischoff had for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) back in its days on TNT with Monday Nitro and run an announce booth that featured one team of two guys in the first hour and a different team for the second.

Initially, Jeremy Borash did color commentary alongside Todd Keneley for hour one as the "B" team and Mike Tenay and Tazz did hour two as the "A" team. That only lasted a short time before Borash went back to his role as a backstage interviewer and ring announcer and Keneley simply joined Tenay and Tazz for the duration of whatever show they were doing at any particular time.

Now that's done too.

According to PWInsider.com, Keneley was informed his last assignment was the Slammiversary pay-per-view (PPV) that just went down this past Sunday night in Boston. He has not been fired from the company altogether, though, and could be brought back in another capacity in a different role.

Assuming one becomes available to him.

His being removed from the announce team also apparently wasn't because of his work but more of an attempt to "streamline the announce team."

You Cagesiders like the move?
