IMPACT Wrestling continues their live Twitch specials but in September, it takes a BritWres slant as IMPACT airs the special IMPACT vs The UK, live from Wrestling MediaCon in Manchester on September 9, 2018. The special will air live at 5pm BST or 12pm EST.
The special already has a series of matches announced, with more likely to be announced in the final weeks.
Rich Swann vs. Matt Sydal vs. Trevor Lee
A triple threat between three of IMPACT’s top high flyers, Rich Swann has finally shown the world what he can do away from the limitations he had working for the WWE. He faces former IMPACT X-Division Champions Matt Sydal and Trevor Lee in a what should be a fast paced match-up with a lot of big spots from each man.
Su Yung vs. Lana Austin
“The Undead Bride” Su Yung brings her reign of terror to the United Kingdom, facing a 5-year veteran of the UK indie scene in Lana Austin. A staple with the likes of FutureShock Wrestling (FSW), Southside Wrestling Entertainment (SWE), Defiant Wrestling and Grand Pro Wrestling (GPW), the 2x FSW Women’s Champion, SWE Queen of Southside and reigning GPW Women’s Champion will be the hometown favorite, as the Mancunian takes the fight in her hometown of Manchester, as the Knockouts division joins the IMPACT vs The UK fight.
Eli Drake vs. Joe Hendry
Eli Drake and Joe Hendry have been battling for weeks now on IMPACT television, and this time the fight moves a little closer to home for Hendry. The Scottish superstar, whose recently been competing for Ring of Honor at their UK events, is also a regular with Defiant Wrestling, Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW) and World of Sport (WOS). Although unofficially it’s been IMPACT vs The UK on television for a while now, it all comes to a head in the United Kingdom in September.
Moose vs. Eddie Edwards
While this match hasn’t been made official, the graphic recently showed up and seems to hint at a confrontation between the two. We’ll have to see how future episodes of IMPACT up until September play out to see why these two allies are fighting (or perhaps teaming up against an unnamed duo).
IMPACT Tag Team Championship: LAX (Santana & Ortiz) (c) vs. Jody Fleisch & Jonny Storm
The LAX combo of Santana and Ortiz continue to stake their claims as arguably the best tag team in the world by putting their IMPACT Tag Team titles on the line against a tandem of veterans of the UK indie scene. London’s Jody Fleisch is a 21-year veteran who has competed with the likes of IPW:UK, RevPro, ICW, SWE, World Association of Wrestling (WAW) and the fabled Frontier Wrestling Alliance (FWA) throughout his storied career. His partner is another veteran in 22-year veteran Jonny Storm, another former star from FWA whose also run the gamete of promotions himself.
Barbed Wire Baseball Bat Death Match: Sami Callihan vs. Jimmy Havoc
The main event is going to be an absolute bloodbath, as one of America’s most violent wrestlers, Sami Callihan, goes head to head against the UK’s death machine, Jimmy Havoc. Just to make sure the match gets a bit of color, it’s going to be a barbed wire baseball bat death match, so it’s going to get nasty.
