Impact Wrestling’s last batch of tapings took place in Ottawa, Canada after the company’s Bound for Glory PPV event, where TNA Hall of Famer Gail Kim wrestled her final match for the company and will transition to a backstage agent role.
It was previously reported that Impact would be Canada based going forward due to the Impact Wrestling’s parent company Anthem Sports & Entertainment being based in Canada.
One Knockouts feud fans can expect to play out when the company returns to Orlando for these tapings is the bad blood between Rosemary and Taya Valkyrie – who were originally set to square-off in a Red Wedding (First Blood) match at Bound for Glory.
The new year may also see the departure of Laurel Van Ness, who has reportedly asked for her release from the company. In addition, the Impact have already teased the debut of a new Knockout in Hania for 2018.
