David Penzer Finishes Up With IMPACT Wrestling

Fightful correspondent Joel Pearl was in attendance at Final Resolution. He posted that after the event was over, TNA President Scott D’Amore notified the crowd that Penzer was finishing up with the company.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider has more:

After Impact Wrestling Final Resolution went off the air, Scott D’Amore gave a speech to the crowd in Toronto announcing that when TNA returns next year, there will be some changes to the company.

D’Amore noted that one of those changes will see the depature of longtime ring announcer Dave Penzer, who finished up at the PPV. 

D’Amore praised Penzer for his hard work over the years, not just with TNA Impact but also with WCW, where I believe Penzer may have been the only person in attendance at every Nitro ever.  

The night ended with Penzer being given an award for all his years of service to the professional wrestling world.

In asking around, we are told that it was an amicable exit.

Penzer took to Twitter to write, “Wasn’t expecting that send off. Lots of things swirling in my mind. Thanks for all the great comments. I’ll take a few days and make a statement on here.”

Jade Chung, the wife of Josh Alexander, had been doing some ring announcing for dark Matt he’s at the live crowds and hyping them up. She might be in line to take Penzer’s spot.

Dave Penzer is a longtime ring announcer and voice of both TNA and WCW, and formerly IMPACT Wrestling. Penzer returned to the company in a full-time status in 2020.

Fans have heard the legendary voice of David Penzer echo throughout the IMPACT Zone as he made the in-ring introductions each and every Thursday night on AXS TV for the last 3 years.
