Don West Leaving TNA
Longtime TNA employee Don West has given notice that he’s leaving the company, according to PWInsider.com.
West had been with the company since it was founded in 2002 and served as a lead announcer along with Mike Tenay until he was replaced by Taz. He has also been the head of TNA’s merchandise department since 2009, a role West was so good at that TNA sources have said will be nearly impossible to find somebody to fill his shoes.
West, who first got national television exposure as the zany pitchman for the Shop At Home network, brought his unique brand of sales skills on the road with TNA, where he’d set up a merchandise table inside the ring and other unique offers.
