Powell’s POV: It’s great to see Impact finally get involved in WrestleMania. It never made sense to me that they were the only major company that seemed to avoid piggybacking off of WWE and making money. Not only are they involved, but they are diving in headfirst this year. Join John Moore for live coverage of the Impact Wrestling vs. Lucha Underground show here on Sunday night while I cover the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.

  1. It’s wonderful to see a company try to attract fans.

    • Took em’ long enough…

      Now if only they could do this for their Global Wrestling Network (as well as add some good content on that thing. I really want to recommend people see some of their great storylines in 2015-2016 but for some reason they are focusing on the Jarrett era early shows and praising themselves for having WWE and Ring of Honor stars on their show at one point)

      ^_~

      • Truw. I didn’t like it when WCW did that years ago either. My only guess is the current administration is attending to the different facets of their operation one at a time.

        They’ve stabilized the roster. They’ve gotten with the times and put content on twitch. Now, they’re branching out with road shows and promotional events.

        If have to think the network is next.
