Impact Wrestling presented their first pay-per-view of the year tonight with Homecoming, and it’s definitely lived up to the hype. As great of a night as it was, the biggest news coming out of the show is that Impact will simulcast their weekly show on Twitch starting next week!
After weeks of speculation about Impact Wrestling‘s future on television and snickering about whether or not going to the Pursuit Channel was the right decision, all of that may have just changed.
At Homecoming, Impact announced that their weekly show will not only air on Pursuit but also simulcast on Twitch every week.
As Impact put it, there are no more excuses. Fans can’t claim it’s just too hard to watch Impact Wrestling anymore. If you want to watch, all you have to do is load up Twitch and enjoy the show.
Every week on Friday, Impact will stream on Twitch in the US at 10PM ET, and it’s never been easier to watch some of the best wrestling in the business. If you didn’t get a chance to catch Homecoming, you owe it to yourself to do so. From start to finish, Impact gave us high quality stories with top-notch matches.
HOMECOMING SPOILERS AHEAD
Impact’s Knockouts Division was turned on its head with Taya Valkyrie capturing the Knockouts Championship in a spectacular contest against Tessa Blanchard. We also saw two women who could be the future of the Knockouts Division, Jordynne Grace and Kiera Hogan take on Su Yung and Allie. The supernatural duo of Yung and Allie picked up the win, but were put on edge when Rosemary suddenly returned after the match to save Hogan.
We also saw Rich Swann become the new X-Division Champion in a breathtaking Ultimate X Match. Impact was even channeling their inner ECW with some hardcore action. Abyss took on Eli Drake in a Monster’s Ball Match, and Eddie Edwards went to war with Moose in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. Blood was spilled, and there’s no doubt that everyone in Impact Wrestling was trying to make their mark to open 2019.
Homecoming has set the tone for what looks to be a landmark year for Impact Wrestling. Some fans might still like to point at their rougher years, but those years are so far in the rear-view mirror that today’s Impact Wrestling is unrecognizable in comparison.
