Matt Striker done with Impact Wrestling

Striker is gone from the promotion after spending the last year as an announcer.

Matt Striker is done with Impact Wrestling.

PWInsider confirmed this afternoon that Striker is done with the company. Striker posted, then deleted, a tweet confirming that he was no longer with Impact.

“I am disappointed that my time with #ImpactonAXSTV is done,” he wrote. “I REALLY enjoyed that locker room. Thanks for allowing me to tell your story. Thanks, everyone. Stay safe."

Striker started announcing for Impact last January, where he and D’Lo Brown replaced Josh Mathews and Madison Rayne as the lead announce team starting with the 2021 edition of Hard to Kill. PWInsider reported that Brown is still expected to be part of the announce team going forward.

Striker has focused on commentary since 2008, joining the broadcast team of various WWE shows including ECW and SmackDown. After WWE opted not to renew his contract in 2013, he has called matches for various promotions including Lucha Underground, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide.
