Retro Wrestling Comes Alive as IMPACT Wrestling Presents Throwback Throwdown

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.
This one-night-only edition of IMPACT! showcases the IMPACT Wrestling stars as you’ve never seen them.
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!
