Legendary TNA Voice Actor Barry Scott Passes Away Aged 65

Barry Scott

In professional wrestling, especially for televised products, it takes more than just good wrestlers to make the perfect show.  It requires production, commentators, video creation, and in the case of TNA (now IMPACT Wrestling) was the voice of Barry Scott who was important to the early growth of the promotion.

Through his narration Barry Scott became synonymous with TNA.  He had a way of adding importance to each video package and he added so much professionalism to the overall package of TNA Wrestling.  He made things is ridiculously complicated as the King Of The Mountain match feel genuinely important and dramatic rather than eye-rollingly complex.

As we said Scott became synonymous with his narration becoming something many associated with the promotion including some of his more famous phrases like “cross the line”.  In recent times Scott had been working with IMPACT as they embrace their TNA roots and had narrated a Moose hype package that had many feeling nostalgic about the longtime voice of the product.

Barry Scott passed away at aged 65 and the wrestling world has been in mourning for the voice of TNA, and for some the voice of our youth.
