It’s June, and many around the world have celebrated Pride all month. Now, Impact Wrestling is getting in on the fun, because they are holding a historic event for the company.
In a groundbreaking move for a major wrestling company, Impact Wrestling has announced their plans to host a “Pride Night” next month. Taking place on July 16th in Windsor, Ontario, this event marks a significant step forward for inclusivity and diversity in professional wrestling.
Impact Wrestling revealed that the ticket package for the Pride Night will include a special meet & greet session with Gisele Shaw and Jai Vidal, adding an exciting opportunity for fans to connect with these talented individuals.

IMPACT Wrestling and the Windsor-Essex Pride Fest are proud to tag-team for a Pride Night at the IMPACT pro wrestling show on Sunday, July 16, at St. Clair College in Windsor, Ontario, marking the first-ever Pride Night from a major pro wrestling company.
The Pride Ticket Package includes one general admission ticket and a private post-show Meet & Greet with Gisele Shaw and Jai Vidal, proud members of the LGBTQ+ community. Plus, a portion of all Pride Ticket Package sales will be donated to The Trevor Project which, since 1998, has focused on suicide prevention about LGBTQ+ youth.
It’s interesting that Impact Wrestling is waiting until mid-July for this event, but it’s better late than never. If anything, their inclusive roster must see the effort that the company is making to spread the message.
