• Former TNA Commentator Don West Passes Away

We are saddened to report that Don West, whom most of you remember from his 2002-2012 stint as a color-commentator for Total Nonstop Action! (now iMPACT Wrestling), has passed away.

He was 59 years old. Last year, Don was diagnosed with Brain Lymphoma.

Mike Tenay broke this sad news on Twitter. Below is what Mike wrote:

“Just heard from wife Terri that our brother @DonWestDeals will be spending New Years in heaven. Terri said D-Dub finally had to tap out from his match with lymphoma.

We bonded as soon as we met, both as broadcast partners and friends. Years of great moments both on and off camera.”
