Report: This Week's Episode Of IMPACT Wrestling Almost Didn't Make It On Air

With IMPACT needing to make heavy edits to this week's episode, the show nearly didn't air as it was.

According to a report from PWInsider, IMPACT Wrestling was extremely busy editing this week's show after the company announced it has terminated Joey Ryan's contract after allegations of sexual abuse surfaced.

The report stated that editing came down to the wire and if the episode took just 30 more minutes to be delivered, the show wouldn't have made it to the air. In addition, the report noted how IMPACT "cannibalized material originally set to air in the weeks to come" but their top priority was to make sure that a new episode is delivered for this week.

Ryan was originally scheduled to be part of a six-man tag team match alongside #CancelCulture going up against the team of Crazzy Steve and two mystery partners. But after Ryan's contract was terminated, that match was taken off Tuesday's episode and replaced with Deonna Purrazzo against Alisha Edwards.

Earlier in the week, IMPACT terminated the contracts of Ryan and Dave Crist following allegations of sexual abuse and assault. The company also suspended Michael Elgin amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

IMPACT filmed upcoming episodes weeks ago at Skyway Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
