Impact Wrestling Roster Addressed Backstage Before Television Tapings

Impact Wrestling taped two television shows last night. You can check out the first one here and the second night can be found here. There was also a pretty interesting event when the power went out during the second show.

Before everything kicked off, PW Insider reports that President of Impact Wrestling’s parent company Anthem Sports Ed Nordholm addressed the entire locker room.

It was said to be a positive speech overall from Nordholm. He said that the company did what they set out to accomplish in 2018. He remains optimistic about what is coming in 2019 and considered 2017 a “learning year.”

Ed Nordholm addressed the company’s move to the Pursuit Channel, and as Mike Johnson explained in his report:

“One of the reasons Anthem took over the company was so that they could have it for their own assets and Pursuit is one of those assets.  With the deal at Pop ending, Impact now has the digital rights to the Impact Wrestling series again, which is why they can also simulcast it on Twitch on Fridays.”

He was also asked if there was any truth to the rumor that Anthem Sports is looking to sell Impact Wrestling. Nordholm assured the roster that there was no worry about Anthem Sports selling the company.

Ed Nordholm didn’t mention selling the company, however, he previously said that Impact Wrestling is open to working with the new All Elite Wrestling company.
