When people are talking about top pro wrestling companies in the USA, they often overlook Impact Wrestling. Some fans just haven’t been able to get over the stigma of TNA. Impact is still owned by Anthem Sports who has access to some considerable funds.
There are a few indie wrestling companies with television deals and MLW is enjoying their spot on beIN Sports. Impact Wrestling Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore confirmed via social media on Sunday Night that they will be exchanging talent with MLW by letting their stars work for both companies.
“And I can confirm that MLW and ourselves have stayed in communication and have both said that our respective talent is welcome to work for the other.
It’s great when politics can be shelved to allow talent and business to thrive.”
This is something that was actually already going on. Pentagon Jr, Fenix, Sami Callihan, Rich Swann, and others have worked for both companies. On some weeks when Lucha Underground was in season it was possible to see Sami Callihan and The Lucha Bros working for three different televised wrestling companies in the same week.
It is nice that this kind of relationship can continue for the good of the business.
