After the success of last year was followed by Impact Wrestling Homecoming earlier this month, Impact Wrestling will reportedly host their next pay-per-view event at the Rebel Entertainment Complex in Toronto, Canada. An exact date for the event hasn’t been reported, but this is a great choice for Impact.
According to reporting by PWInsider.com, they have definitively confirmed that Impact Wrestling will have their next pay-per-view event at the Rebel Entertainment Complex in Toronto. The date for the event was not reported, but it’s likely to take place during April when Impact’s Redemption event happened last year.
Despite a lack of specifics about the event and the matches we’ll see, just the news of where it’ll take place is a good sign for Impact Wrestling. Last year they had three pay-per-view events. Redemption took place at the old Impact Zone in Orlando, Bound for Glory took place in the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, and Slammiversary XVI took place in the Rebel Entertainment Complex.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see Tessa Blanchard’s current issues with Impact Hall of Famer Gail Kim lead to a match between the two at this event, as well as the potential for any combination of Johnny Impact, Killer Kross, Moose, and Brian Cage to be involved in the World Title scene by then.
With her win against Dark Allie last night on Impact, Jordynne Grace continues to be undefeated in singles competition since coming to Impact Wrestling. If she can keep that streak rolling in the coming weeks, it would certainly help line her up for a title shot against Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie.
Then again, we could even see Grace channel her experience with intergender wrestling and find her way to Impact’s X-Division.
With names like Ethan Page, Trey Miguel, and then Rich Swann at the top of the division, there would be some stiff competition for Grace. However, she’s proven herself capable of standing toe to toe in the past with the likes of former X-Division Champion Brian Cage.
PWInsider was also able to confirm the event will not be a revival of Impact’s steel cage themed Lockdown pay-per-view, but wasn’t able to report on the name of this upcoming event. If you consider the role location and crowds play into the success of an event, this one could really be something special.
Last year’s Slammiversary XVI received a great critical reception and was considered by many to be one of the best wrestling events in 2018. It was also the best Impact Wrestling pay-per-view of the year. If Impact Wrestling can carry the energy from the crowd in Toronto with the success of Slammiversary last year into this show, it could be absolutely must-see.
