Latest WWE News – Rob Van Dam returns to the 2300 Arena in a new episode of Impact Wrestling
In addition, Rosemary and Su Yung will meet in the first Demon Necklace Match
Tonight, Impact Wrestling returns with a new weekly episode that will air on the American channel Pursuit Channel. Our editor Nicolás Lafferriere will be in charge of sending us everything that happens, live, through the weekly report. The company has announced several fights and segments for the show corresponding to recordings from the 2300 Arena (popularly known as ECW Arena) of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Impact Wrestling highlights the following points in its official preview:
– Tonight in a new episode of Impact Wrestling, Rich Swann and Michael Elgin will face each other in a heads up. Swann is the great X-Division champion and we know he can do anything in the ring. Michael Elgin is the world championship challenger and he has a date with Brian Cage in the near future. Tonight in Philadelphia, these two men will meet in the main event of the episode. Who will come out with the victory?
– Last week we saw the return of Rob Van Dam to the Impact Wrestling ring and tonight, he returns to what was his home for a long time, the 2300 Arena. RVD is a former champion of ECW, WWE and IMPACT Wrestling, but nevertheless, he is remembered with a lot of love for what he achieved in ECW years ago. The extinct ECW is still remembered by fans around the world, being an alternative for those who were tired of the same product week after week. Such was its popularity, that ECW called South Philly its home and even, popularly, the 2300 Arena is still known today as “ECW Arena”. Undoubtedly, RVD will be received as it deserves and it will be an emotional moment for both the former ECW and the fans.
In addition, Impact Wrestling not only returns next week for several Impact TV recordings, but will also be on June 8 for a special event for the IMPACT + platform. “A Night You Can not MIST” with wrestling legend The Great Muta, who will return to Impact Wrestling for one night.
-The Knockouts division will be the focus of double attention tonight. On the one hand we will have a Battle Royale in which the different stories among its participants are intertwined and, possibly, the winner of that real battle could have the opportunity to face Taya Valkyrie for the Knockouts championship in the future, or at least get Climb some positions. On the other hand, there are Rosemary and Su Yung, whose problems seem to go in a different universe.
Tonight at Impact Wrestling we will see Rosemary and Su Yung meet in the first Demon Collar Match. Both Knockouts will voluntarily put a collar around their neck, which will be linked by a chain. The only way to win is by three account or submission. The two fighters are former Knockouts champions and the history between them is more than personal.
The first time that Su Yung appeared in Impact Wrestling was compared with “The Demon Assassin” and the confrontation between them could not go unnoticed: both use the darkness and the powers they take from her; they love mental games and their common goal is to get the Knockouts championship again. What will happen tonight in Philadelphia? Who will win the first Demon Collar Match?
– Tonight at Impact Wrestling we will see Killer Kross measuring Eddie Edwards in an individual fight. While they may look like similar fighters, they are very different and have shown during their time in Impact Wrestling: Killer Kross is cold and calculating, while Eddie Edwards has been driven by the madness and the more hardcore side of wrestling. The confrontation between “The American Psycho” and “The Boston Lunatic” promises to be of epic proportions.
– Returning to the Knockouts, today we will see a Battle Royale that could change the course of the division. Tessa Blanchard, Jordynne Grace, Madison Rayne, Alisha Edwards and Kiera Hogan are the candidates to take the victory, but do not forget that this is a Royal Battle and that the surprises, both in the participants and in the final result, are made to order of the day
Each fighter seeks to ascend and get an opportunity to face Taya Valkyrie for the championship. As much as there are some past quarrels among the participants, having the opportunity to get the gold of the division is a greater objective. What Knockout will remain in the ring at the end of tonight?
-It’s frank and controversial. Glenn Gilbertti has plagued women and the place in the professional fight. Tonight, Gilbertti returns to Impact Wrestling for the first time since being beaten by Scarlett Bordeaux. What will Gilbertti have in his sleeve tonight?
Then we leave you with the matches and segments announced for the Impact Wrestling program tonight:
RVD returns to the 2300 Arena
