Don West dead at age 59

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Former Impact Wrestling color commentator Don West died on Friday at age 59 following a battle with brain lymphoma. West’s longtime broadcast partner Mike Tenay announced the news via social media.

Powell’s POV: West became famous as a pitchman for the Shop At Home Network and was even parodied by Will Ferrell and other cast members on Saturday Night Live a few times. He worked for Impact as a color commentator from 2002-2012, and also worked for the company’s merchandise department in more recent years. My condolences to the West family, as well as Don’s many friends and fans.

  1. I was never a fan of Don West’s over the top commentary. However, this is very sad news. My sincere condolences to his family, friends and former Impact colleagues.
