IMPACT Wrestling will once again be available on weekly television for fans in the UK and Ireland with a new time slot.
As part of the company’s deal with sports entertainment platform DAZN, its weekly flagship show IMPACT! will air on Sky UK via DAZN 1 HD.
The linear channel was launched on March 23 with a range of programming including premier boxing and combat sports, eSports, women’s football, extreme sports and documentaries.
Now, IMPACT will be joining the roster for fans across the UK and Ireland.
Scott D’Amore, President of IMPACT Wrestling, said in a statement: ‘The UK fans have been among the most dedicated and passionate IMPACT Wrestling fans throughout our history.
‘They have been clamoring for a return of Impact programming to TV, so we are very pleased to be on such an outstanding TV outlet as Sky UK via DAZN 1 HD.’
In a very exciting move, the IMPACT boss also teased the possibility of live shows in the future.
‘We thank our partner, DAZN, and look forward bringing IMPACT Wrestling live to the UK very soon,’ he added.
It would be a welcome surprise for fans in the UK and Ireland, who have been clamouring for the company to come back over here after they previously spent years putting on huge tours with shows at the likes of Wembley Arena.
Now, IMPACT Wrestling’s stacked roster is led by IMPACT World Champion Alex Shelley and Knockouts World Champion Deonna Purrazzo, with Shelley’s Motor City Machine Guns partner Chris Sabin currently holding X-Division gold.
