As if the news that IMPACT Wrestling is returning to the UK for the first time in almost three years, they’ve made a truly BLOCKBUSTER announcement this morning. (May 24th 2018)
IMPACT’s appearance at Wrestling MediaCon in Manchester on September 9th will see the superstars of IMPACT wrestling taking on the best of the British independent wrestling scene.
IMPACT – which airs in more than 100 countries worldwide – today issued an open challenge to any UK wrestling promotion to face them in an inter-promotional series at the event, the first time any American wrestling organisation has made this challenge.
Lee Medd from ‘Medd in the Morning’ said “This is HUGE, not only will we see the IMPACT roster in the UK for the first time in 3 years, but following the success of their interpromotional event at WrestleCon I the US where they made history partnering with Lucha Underground, they are going one step further and welcoming challengers from any UK promotion. This will be THE MUST SEE event of the year in the UK wrestling scene.”
Tickets for ‘IMPACT Wrestling vs the UK’ live at Wrestling MediaCon 2018 will go on sale tomorrow (Friday May 25) at 10am UK time from Ringside World at www.ringsideworld.co.uk.
Ed Nordholm, the President of IMPACT Wrestling, laid down the challenge. He said: “Since we last came to the UK almost three years ago, we have seen how much the UK wrestling scene has evolved.
“We are excited to return to the UK to demonstrate that IMPACT Wrestling has the best talent anywhere in the world, so we’re issuing an open challenge to any UK promotion to bring their best wrestlers to face the very best from IMPACT Wrestling on September 9 in Manchester.”
The organisers of Wrestling MediaCon 2018 said they are excited by the prospect of IMPACT Wrestling taking on a UK promotion.
“There are many fantastic UK promotions out there and we are expecting a lot of interest in this challenge from IMPACT Wrestling,” said a Wrestling MediaCon spokesman.
“We are committed to finding the best possible competition for the stars of IMPACT Wrestling in order to showcase the UK wrestling scene in the best possible light.”
