Mike Tenay and Don West will be the next inductees into IMPACT Wrestling’s Hall of Fame next month.

During Victory Road, it was revealed that the original commentary duo for the promotion will be inducted at next month’s Bound for Glory event in Chicago on October 21.

West will be inducted posthumously after passing away last December at the age of 59 due to lymphoma.

The two called the very first NWA TNA pay-per-view on June 19, 2002, along with Ed Ferrara before gaining fame as a two-man team throughout the first seven years of the company’s existence. Tenay & West were the voices of the company on its weekly pay-per-view format, adding a show on Fox Sports Net on Friday afternoons, and eventually moving to Spike TV in October 2005.

After West was taken off commentary, Tenay continued to serve as the play-by-play host of the show through 2016 before leaving the company.
