Published

on

The Chairshot was sent along the following press release as a number of big matches have been scheduled for IMPACT Wrestling’s return to the United Kingdom on September 9th:

Two International Dream Matches Announced for IMPACT Wrestling Event on Sept. 9 in Manchester

  • Hardcore icons collide as Sami Callihan takes on Britain’s Jimmy Havoc

  • LAX put Tag Team Titles on the line against Jody Fleisch and Jonny Storm

  • Eli Drake, Moose, Eddie Edwards, Rich Swann and Su Yung will also star

  • Tickets for the show are on sale NOW from www.ringsideworld.co.uk

TORONTO | LONDON – IMPACT Wrestling has announced two international dream matches for the company’s first live event in the UK in almost three years.

IMPACT returns to Britain with a live show at Wrestling MediaCon 2018 on Sunday, Sept. 9, with tickets on sale NOW from www.ringsideworld.co.uk/wrestling-mediacon-upcoming-events

And the company today revealed two unique marquee matches – pitting IMPACT Wrestling’s top stars against the very best of Britain.

Sami Callihan will take on Jimmy Havoc in a clash of hardcore wrestling icons. Callihan has built a reputation as one of the most disrespectful wrestlers on the planet – attacking management, insulting his peers and almost ending the career of Eddie Edwards in a baseball bat attack. He will face Jimmy Havoc, whose violent and bloody style of wrestling has won him a legion of fans and a collection of championships on the British independent scene.

LAX will put their IMPACT Tag Team Titles on the line in a dream match against two of the UK’s most decorated stars. British high flyers Jody Fleisch and Jonny Storm have won titles all around the world in singles and tag team competition. They will now challenge Santana and Oritz for one of the biggest prizes in professional wrestling today.

Other top IMPACT Wrestling stars confirmed to be part of Wrestling MediaCon 2018 include Eli Drake, Matt Sydal, Trevor Lee, Su Yung, Eddie Edwards, Moose and Rich Swann.

Their matches for the Manchester event will be announced each day on the IMPACT Wrestling UK Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ImpactonSpike. Fans should also follow the Facebook page for details of meet and greets at Wrestling MediaCon 2018.

Fans can watch IMPACT Wrestling every Friday night at 11 p.m. on 5Spike on Freeview, Sky and Virgin Media. The show is also repeated in prime time on Saturdays and Sundays on the recently launched Fight Network, which can be found on Sky Channel 455.
