Wrestling announcer Tony Schiavone reflects on being the voice of your childhood

My wife and I have lived in the same house in East Cobb for 31 years now, since Turner Broadcasting offered me a job with World Championship Wrestling. When I first started, we taped the TBS shows at Center Stage. Then, we would tape the syndicated shows in Gainesville, at the Georgia Mountains Center, and at the Cobb County Civic Center. We stayed in the area until we got really big in the mid-’90s and started moving all around.

Tony Schiavone On Quitting WWE In 1990: “A Decision I Regretted For Years”

AEW announcer Tony Schiavone recently spoke to Michael Morales of Lucha Libre Online to look back on his career in the wrestling industry. When asked to talk about his short stint with the WWE between 1989 and 1990, Schiavone called it his “best year in pro wrestling” before he joined AEW.

Powell’s Impact Wrestling Hit List: Rich Swann and Tommy Dreamer vs. Moose and Chris Bey, TJP vs. Rohit Raju in a non-title match, Tony Khan and Tony Schiavone, Havok vs. Tasha Steelz, Josh Alexander vs. Madman Fulton, Jordynne Grace vs. Susan

Rich Swann and Tommy Dreamer vs. Moose and Chris Bey: The heel duo went over when Dreamer sidestepped Moose and then shoved him, which led to Moose spearing and pinning Swann. It gave Moose a win over the Impact World Champion while likely creating some tension between Swann and Dreamer heading into their title match at No Surrender. The only negative is that Swann continues to look like a soft champion rather than the face of the brand.

Tony Schiavone: There and Back Again

Concerning wrestling commentators. Professional wrestling commentators have been both occupying and captivating the minds of wrestling fans for generations. Quite content to remain outside of the spotlight that is the superstardom known to wrestlers themselves, commentators instead only add to the lore that are these sometimes strange and magical performers. Commentators may seem of little importance, being neither renowned as great in ring athletes, nor counted among the Stone Cold’s or Ric Flair’s of the world, but the gravity of their place in this thing we all love cannot be overstated.

Powell’s Impact Wrestling Hit List: Rich Swann vs. Karl Anderson in a non-title match, Taya Valkyrie vs. Kimber Lee, Tenille Dashwood vs. Rosemary, Deaner vs. Tommy Dreamer, Chris Bey and Rohit Raju vs. Manik and Suicide, Tony Khan and Tony Schiavone, final hype for Hard To Kill

Impact World Champion Rich Swann vs. Karl Anderson in a non-title match: A good television main event that served as a teaser for the big six-man tag team main event of Saturday’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view. I’m surprised that Impact didn’t find a way to use all of the Kenny Omega bus segments to build up to Swann vs. Anderson as an Impact World Championship match instead of this being a non-title match. Granted, Anderson is a tag wrestler, but surely they could have come up with a way to make it work in the storyline, especially since Swann went over clean. The brawl afterward was fine and I’m genuinely looking forward to the pay-per-view main event.
