IMPACT 1000 Now Airing As A 2 Night Event
IMPACT Wrestling celebrates its past, present and future with a special 2-night celebration during the 1,000th Episode of the flagship weekly TV show.
The episodes of Impact! on Thursday, September 14 and September 21 (8 p.m. EST on AXS TV) will share the action and excitement of the 1,000th episode, featuring stars from the TNA/IMPACT Wrestling past, present and future – and the episode this Thursday will run longer than the normal 2-hour time-slot.
The stars shined bright in White Plains, New York, where the shows were taped, featuring such legends as Team 3D (Bully Ray and Brother Devon), together for the first time in 7 years. Also appearing: The Beautiful People (Velvet Sky and Angelina Love), Awesome Kong, Gail Kim, Shark Boy and America’s Most Wanted (James Storm and Chris Harris), among others.
The 2-night 1,000th Episode also will feature the current IMPACT mega-stars, including World Champion Alex Shelley, Knockouts World Champion Trinity, Josh Alexander, Eddie Edwards and Tommy Dreamer, among others.
Week One of the 1,000th Episode (airing September 14) features an X Division Title Match as Lio Rush puts the title on the line against, arguably, the greatest X Division champion of all-time, Chris Sabin. Also this week, Eddie and Alisha Edwards battle Frankie Kazarian and Traci Brooks. Plus, fans will hear from Josh Alexander.
The 2-show festivities feature some iconic moments, matches that truly are TNA/IMPACT Wrestling:
