Several referees including Brian and Earl Hebner announcer their departures from TNA this week. According to PWTorch sources, Tolle reached a deal with Impact Wrestling to work at Bound For Glory and the TV tapings in Canada before the officials left the company. PWTorch has been unable to confirm additional names, but sources have indicated at least two other American officials will work for Impact Wrestling tonight.
Radican’s Analysis: Brandon Tolle is the best independent referee and it’s great to see him signed. Tolle has experience as a ref all over the world and was part of a NXT tryout earlier this year. It’s great to see him get an opportunity to show what he can do on a stage like Bound For Glory. TNA will definitely benefit from having someone with his experience working the PPV and TV tapings after several officials announced they were leaving the company this week.
