Scott D'Amore: IMPACT Wrestling Hopes To Return To Canada And The United Kingdom In 2023

According to Scott D'Amore, IMPACT Wrestling hopes to return to Canada and the United Kingdom next year.

D'Amore, the Executive Vice President of IMPACT, has been at the helm since 2017, when he and Don Callis were both named the EVPs. For well over a year, D'Amore has held the role by himself. Under his watch, IMPACT continues to grow, and it is just a few days away from its biggest show of the year, Bound For Glory. Moving forward, one step in this growth would potentially involve returning to international travel. The company hasn't held an event outside of the United States since the beginning of the COVId-19 pandemic.

Speaking with PWInsider, D'Amore was asked about IMPACT potentially returning to Canada and the UK for live events. He emphasized that IMPACT loves its Canadian roots, and the company wants to venture up north. The EVP stated that Canada lifting some of its travel restrictions is one big step towards making this happen. He expressed that he's hopeful IMPACT will return to Canada and the UK in 2023.

"Absolutely. You know, Anthem has a beautiful flagship office right in downtown Toronto. You know, obviously, I'm born and raised and still reside in Windsor, Ontario. You know, we love our Canadian roots. We have a great passionate fan base here. We have a great, passionate, you know, following here that follows us on Fite TV, follows us on Game TV, and follows us through all the other platforms and do we want to return? Absolutely. I think one of the biggest steps was the fact that you know, just as of this past weekend, Canada's finally lifted a lot of the requirements that could potentially be problematic for coming into the country. So those have been lifted and we look forward to in 2023, seeing a return to Canada and seeing a return to the UK. It's time for us to get back out there and get to our fans around the world," D'Amore said.

D'Amore recently discussed IMPACT's move to Friday pay-per-views and the company's future on AXS TV. More information is available here.
