Impact Wrestling Officials Upset After Pursuit Fails To Air Friday Night’s Show
The Pursuit network has messed up another new broadcast of Impact Wrestling.
As noted, the May 17th edition of the show had its main event accidentally axed when the network aired a 15-minute loop of commercials in its place. That was doubly problematic because the match had been heavily praised all week long.
The problem this week was much worse. Instead of a 15-minute chunk of the show missing, Pursuit didn’t air the June 6th episode at all, instead running an old replay.
The show has already been uploaded to the new Impact Plus streaming service. It features LAX defending the Impact World Tag Team Championships against The Rascalz, a good match between Jordynne Grace and Kiera Hogan, and an inter-gender match pitting Fallah Bahh and Scarlett Bordeaux against oVe.
According to PWInsider.com, Impact Wrestling management was “pulling their hair out” in frustration during Friday night’s television taping in New York. While nothing has been confirmed, several sources including those within the company have indicated that the show is in talks for a better television deal hopefully coming later this year.
