Impact Wrestling issued the following press release to promote the Throwback Throwdown edition of the weekly Impact Wrestling television series that will air November 26 on AXS TV.

Jump aboard the time machine as IMPACT Wrestling goes back in time for the inaugural Throwback Throwdown edition of IMPACT!, set to air on Tuesday, Nov. 26, on AXS TV starting at 8 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT. 

IMPACT Wrestling travels back to the early 1980s as the Superstars and Knockouts take center stage at Toronto’s Don Kolov Arena to pay homage to the Golden Age of professional wrestling on this special presentation of IMPACT PROVINCIAL WRESTLING FEDERATION.

The entertaining, fun-filled IMPACT! features the International Commonwealth Television Championship on the line in a Loser Leaves Town match, plus a Blindfold match and a special Bodyslam Challenge.  This is pure ‘80s, pure entertainment!

Powell’s POV: So all the wrestlers are going to dress up and play ’80s based characters? I’ll reserve judgement until I see the full show, but on paper it seems way too gimmicky for my taste. Does this mean we can finally get through a Thanksgiving week edition of Impact without someone being forced to wear a turkey suit?

  1. This makes the AEW battle royals and incoherent brand wars of WWE seem brilliant in comparison.

  2. I think my eyes might be permanently damaged from too much rolling while reading through that. That is just SO bad. But it is Impact, so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised.
