It's almost contract season, and that's important for a company like IMPACT.
The show looks to tape again in January, after being off for two months. Ethan Page and Jake Crist have expiring contracts between those, but there may be more as well. Fightful Select was able to learn details that additional deals could be up before or right after those January tapings.
We've confirmed with several within IMPACT that there are multiple contracts that are actually up earlier than expected publicly. In early 2019, several re-signings were announced months after the contracts were actually signed and took effect. So some of the deals that look like they have a few more months on them will actually be up on January 1. This is important because IMPACT will have tapings in January and likely March, which is the difference in having these performers for 4 months worth of shows in 2021 and none.
