“IMPACT Wrestling has years of history airing on Thursdays, which was the night for high-energy, action-packed matches, starring some of the most high-profile stars in pro wrestling history,” said IMPACT Executive Vice-President Scott D’Amore. “Nothing is changing from that front when IMPACT! jumps back to Thursday nights.”
The first Thursday episode will put IMPACT Wrestling head-to-head with Night Two of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, which will stream on Peacock.
