There was some grumbling among talents that Impact announced their 4/7 event had been moved from Queens, NY to New Jersey publicly without telling the talent first.  It wasn't so much about the move as it was the talents being caught unaware when they are also trying to strategize other appearances and bookings on the biggest weekend of the year.  More than one talent commented to me that this was a good example of where Sonjay Dutt will be missed as he was the most communicative member of management when it came to talent.

A big part of the reason for the move to New Jersey was concern about the New York State Athletic Commission curfew on pro wrestling.  In New Jersey, there is no commission, hence relative freedom.  One thing Impact will have to make sure is that their event on Thursday 4/4 is over before the last New Jersey Transit train back to NYC leaves Rahway, NJ, which as of the current scheduled, would be 1:52 AM as the next train would not be until after 4:30 AM.  With an 11 PM start, that's going to require their live production to be really right.

Eddie Edwards was announced as returning to Pro Wrestling NOAH, where he once held the Global Honored Crown Championship.

There are still plans to work with House of Glory in NYC down the line.

For those of you with Verizon Fios, please be aware that if you did a series record for Impact Wrestling last week, the network listing featured the two hour broadcast as FOUR different half-hour episodes with only the 8-8:30 PM segment listed as a new episode.  So, unless you set your DVR to record new episodes AND repeats, you are chancing the possibility of not getting the entire episode.  We have heard Impact has made the network aware of the issues with the program guide, but Pursuit has been slow in responding in general.

The GWN App has released a behind the scenes documentary on the 2018 Bound for Glory PPV in NYC titled Go for Glory.

Impact will team with Smash Wrestling this Saturday for a live Twitch broadcast tomorrow from London, Ontario at The London Music Hall with Impact Champion  Johnny Impact vs. Sami Callihan on top.
