It really can’t be overstated just how important Barry Scott was to TNA history – his voice alone brought gravitas and credibility. He raised the level of the material, he made it feel important. RIP.

Rest In Power to a Nashville Legend: William Barry Scott, Actor, Director, Theatre Founder and more. As a youngster in church, he was a model for possibility, and when I grew up, he cast me in my 1st professional play. May the world remember your determination, forever. Ashe.
Barry was the voice that rings through so many of all of our favorite wrestling moments over the years.
RIP Barry Scott. Forever a true legend in the game. https://t.co/cRfLbbaSG4
