SPOILER: SEVERAL STARS RETURN AT LAST NIGHT'S IMPACT WRESTLING TAPING, IMPACT ON VERIZON FIOS NOTE, BACKSTAGE NOTES FROM LAST NIGHT'S TAPING & MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2019-01-08 09:40:00

Former WCW World Champion Scott Steiner, Bram, Crazzy Steve, Crimson and Jax Dane all worked last night's Impact Wrestling taping.  Steiner will return to Impact Wrestling TV this week. 

Steve worked what was going to be an Xplosion match but instead ended up as a dark match that was sent to the ring when there were power issues at the taping to kill time while Impact was getting back-up generators going.  No word what caused the power issue but the emergency lights in the Nashville Fairgrounds Arena came up during the problem.  The general consensus was that the company was lucky that didn't happen during the Homecoming PPV the night before.

Bram, Crimson and Dane worked a match taped for a future episode of Xplosion with Bram teaming with Caleb Konley against the War Kings.

For those of you (like myself) who have Verizon Fios, their cable guide listing does not list Impact Wrestling as airing on The Pursuit Channel this Friday.  Until that is resolved, you'll have to manually record the series yourself by recording that block of time.  The series is not listed for next week, either, as of this writing.

Tommy Dreamer was working backstage as a producer last night and at the PPV.

Andy Douglas, who wrestled for the company as one half of the Naturals, was backstage.  He's now retired as a pro wrestler and is working full-time as a chiropractor and was working on some of the talents.

Chris Harris was backstage again.

Dixie Carter was not at the TV taping.
