"Konnan and Eddie Kingston will be around" cracks me up.

I just bought a general admission ticket to this.

I haven't watched Impact in about 3 years.  😂

If I was in the Toronto area, I'd go in a heartbeat.

I'm fishing for a comp lol. If I don't score one I'll probably go grab a ticket the day of.

I'll be there, also in general admission.  That 4-way is worth the ticket price.

To those going, have you been to Rebel before? Looks like an awesome venue

This is the best built PPV they’ve had since, well maybe ever.

The only thing I’m not hot on is Sydal v Cage but even that should be at least a fun sprint.

Rebel is a nightclub/concert venue. Very Las Vegas-ish. Saturday nights there are BANANA.

Yeah from looking at the place it seems the kind of club where about 90% of the people that will be going to this PPV wouldn't be allowed through the front door on other nights.    Will be interested to see how it looks.  TNA has been pretty good turning non wrestling buildings lately

So is Rosemary still in the company?   Granted I haven't watched the product in the last month but Madison vs Su makes no sense.

Rosemary suffered a torn ACL. Her losing the last rites casket match against Su was the way to write her off. It was brought up in the 2018 TNA thread before it veered into a discussion about Norwegian black metal.

Yup - she suffered the injury in an indie match.

And looking back - a lot of quotes from people within Impact definitely come across that they didn't realize how serious it was until like at least a month after actually suffering the injury.

It amazes me she was able to work with a torn ACL for a few months. That, and Sami Zayn working with TWO torn rotator cuffs. They're both troopers, for sure. It's somewhat reassuring that Rosemary will get her revenge when she returns. I'm far less confident about Sami unless the abortion of an angle with Lashley put him in someone's good graces.

This is part of why I'm looking forward to attending, I have never been in that building before and very likely never will be again.  Lol.

Well it looks like Slammi is officially sold out. We’re look at around 2000 give or take.

Also it looks like they’re gonna push the TV tapings at the Blue Jays game as Johnny’s throwing out the first pitch.

The 90% line got a chuckle out of me. Its probably true athought the Nitro’s at Club LaVela drew pretty much the same crowds that place normally does.

I'm very confident that Sami is in people's good graces.  The dude worked a program with Lashley while injured.  The stuff covered was bad but he seemed to put everything he could into such questionable material.  I'd like to think if he didn't have certain people's support before he does now.

And I'm very happy that they sold out the club.  Really wish I could see it live but I'll be curious how people liked it.  For whoever's going have fun and hope it's as awesome as it seems to be.

It is wrong that bringing back Barry Scott has me more excited than anything else they have done this year?

Maybe wrestling was always meant to be there.  In the clubs first incarnation as The Docks, Trish Stratus was the model they used for their advertising

Impact Star Reportedly Taken To Hospital After MLW Match, Slammiversary Match In Question

At last night's Major League Wrestling Battleriot event, Rich Swann was taken to the hospital by ambulance after his match, according to PWInsider. Early word was Swann had a bad concussion that he sustained towards the end of his tag match (Swann and ACH vs. Teddy Hart and Davey Boy Smith Jr.).

Swann was scheduled to be involved in this Sunday's Impact Slammiversary XVIPPV in a Four-Way Match against Johnny Impact, Rey Fenix, and Taiji Ishimori. As of this writing Impact is watching the situation and working on a replacement if Swann isn't able to compete this weekend.

Swann debuted with Impact last month where he defeated Trevor Lee in his first match.
