It's a time of transition for the company as they head over to AXS TV on October 22, ushering in a new era for their television product. Currently, they are on the Pursuit Channel, an outdoor enthusiast television network that has had its fair share of mistakes in airing IMPACT Wrestling. One such mistake was airing nearly a half an hour of commercials instead of returning to IMPACT and showing the main event match of the week between Michael Elgin and Rich Swann.

IMPACT will also be partaking in many events throughout the weekend, including a ton of pride celebration events with Knockout Kiera Hogan. Below is her full schedule for the weekend:
