Report: French-Language Broadcast Of IMPACT Bound For Glory Scrapped Due To Technical Difficulties

IMPACT Wrestling Bound For Glory 2020 had its fair share of audio issues and some of these issues resulted in the complete removal of the French-language broadcast of the event. 

Sylvain Grenier and Marc Blondin were to provide French commentary for the event on October 24th, 2020 but, according to a new report by F4WOnline, the duo was unable to get their audio out to the proper channels leading to the decision being made to scrap the French broadcast altogether.

Reportedly, Grenier and Blondin ran a successful test Friday night where everything was working with the platform. However, no test was done with actual live footage from the venue. On the day of the event, when they were ready to test again, the commentary duo could hear themselves and see the video of the action, but their audio was not successfully reaching the proper output destination.

Blondin and Grenier were asked to fix the issue, but they were unable to do so as everything was working properly the night before and no changes were made to their setup.

Because of the short window of time between the issues and the show going on the air, the decision was made to cancel broadcast.

IMPACT Wrestling faced several slight production flubs that made air on the pay-per-view.

The duo of Blondin and Sylvain began calling IMPACT Wrestling episodes in 2007 when the former WWE Tag Team Champion debuted to replace PCO on commentary and they would stay a team until Sylvain left the company in 2009.
