THIS WEEK'S IMPACT EPISODE DOUBLING AS BACKDOOR PILOT FOR POTENTIAL STUDIO SERIES

By Mike Johnson on 2019-08-22 13:32:00

Scheduled for this Friday's Impact Wrestling on Pursuit Channel:

*Rhino  vs. Michael Elgin.

*Sami Callihan vs. Tommy Dreamer - No DQ.

*X-Division Champion Jake Crist vs. Rich Swann.

*Impact Tag Team Champions The North vs. Reno Scum.

This Friday's episode was filmed at the Championship Wrestling from Hollywood venue and has been dubbed "Cali Combat."  We have heard from several Impact sources that when you see the show, it was designed to be a backdoor pilot for a potential studio style Impact show that's been talked about as a secondary series if and when the flagship Impact series lands on another cable home.  You could imagine management's reaction when the NWA announced their plans to begin producing a weekly studio series this fall.
