Impact Wrestling is going to England.
2018 has been a year that wrestling has began to pivot towards independent wrestling in the United Kingdom. WWE has launched the NXT UK brand and had PROGRESS Wrestling roster members at WrestleMania Axxess, Ring of Honor went to the United Kingdom two times this year, and as recently announced Impact Wrestling will return to the United Kingdom for the first time since January 2016.
Impact Wrestling will be in Manchester, England for Wrestling MediaCon on September 9th. The show will air on the promotion's Twitch channel. Jimmy Havoc, Joe Hendry, Jody Fleisch, and Jonny Storm were all part of the ROH Honor Re-United Tour and will be part of Impact Wrestling's event.
Storm and Fleisch are challenging for the Impact Wrestling Tag Team Championship.
The following is from a statement at ImpactWrestling.com.
IMPACT Wrestling’s official Twitch channel features exclusive monthly live events, original weekly live shows such as “Prestigious Tuesdays with Joe Hendry,” plus a 24-hour stream showcasing the past, present and future stars of IMPACT Wrestling, including memorable pay-per-view events, original series, weekly highlights and more.
