The voice for some of pro wrestling’s most iconic moments is finally returning to the sport in which he loves. Tony Schiavone will be joining Rich Bocchini to call MLW: One-Shot, which will be available on MLW.tv within 72 hours of the event on October 5th.
“I’m really excited to return, and the reason I am so excited is because I respect what these wrestlers do,” said Schiavone, who shared that he is particularly looking forward to calling the matches of Ricochet, Sami Callihan, and Jeff Cobb.
A television and radio sports broadcaster for decades, Tony has seen and done just about everything imaginable working for Jim Crockett Promotions, WWE and WCW on air as a play-by-play man as well as behind the scenes as a TV producer.
You don’t have to wait to hear Tony on the airwaves as he has a popular podcast on the MLW Radio Network available every Monday called What Happened When with his podcasting tag team partner Conrad Thompson.
When not podcasting, Tony can be heard in the booth for the Gwinnett Braves. Tony is also the Sports Director of WSB Radio in Atlanta and can be heard anchoring sports each morning on Atlanta’s Morning News. Tony is a member of the Georgia Bulldogs Radio Network and works on the post game show during both home and away games.
