Impact Wrestling To Add Spanish Commentary

Big news for Slammiversary, but will anyone go through the Spanish announce desk?

Impact Wrestling

Impact Wrestling's Slammiversary event will not only feature English commentary from Josh Mathews and Don Callis, but also Spanish commentary for the first time in years, with Jorge Milhe and Javier Sahagun stepping behind the commentary desk for one of the biggest events on the Impact calendar.

Both men are known for their work with Televisa Deportes, where Milhe works as a reporter, while Sahagun is a broadcaster. Longtime fans of Impact will remember the old Spanish commentary team of Hector Guerrero and Willie Urbina, who offered their commentating abilities for a good chunk of time. Since their departure, however, Spanish commentary hasn't been a feature for Impact programming.

Impact's executive vice president Scott D'Amore had the following to say;
