IMPACT Wrestling cut ties with lead announcer Matt Striker earlier this week, with those backstage in IMPACT reportedly not being impressed with his performances.
IMPACT have now announced their replacement for Striker today (January 8), as Renee Paquette took to Twitter to reveal that Tom Hannifan, the former Tom Phillips, is set to serve as the new lead announcer.
Phillips will make his debut for the promotion at tonight’s Hard to Kill pay-per-view.
Huge news!! @TomHannifan joins @IMPACTWRESTLING as their newest play by play announcer at Hard To Kill! What a pick up for them! I have Tom’s first interview this coming Tuesday on The Sessions!! @TheVolumeSports
Phillips was released from WWE back in May 2021.
