IMPACT Wrestling Issues UK Open Challenge For Wrestling Mediacon

To celebrate Wrestling Mediacon coming to the UK in September 2018, IMPACT Wrestling has issued an open challenge to all UK wrestling promotions to face them in an inter-promotional series of matches at the two-day event.

IMPACT Wrestling’s President, Ed Nordholm, made the announcement today (May 24), just a day before tickets for Impact’s return to the UK go on sale.

IMPACT will put on a full show on Sunday, September 9, and it seems they are looking for some home grown competition to face off against.

“Since we last came to the UK almost three years ago, we have seen how much the UK wrestling scene has evolved,” said Nordholm.

“We are excited to return to the UK to demonstrate that IMPACT Wrestling has the best talent anywhere in the world, so we’re issuing an open challenge to any UK promotion to bring their best wrestlers to face the very best from IMPACT Wrestling on September 9 in Manchester.”

The organisers of Wrestling MediaCon 2018 expressed their excitement at the prospect of some of the best UK talent facing off against IMPACT stars.

“There are many fantastic UK promotions out there and we are expecting a lot of interest in this challenge from IMPACT Wrestling,” said a Wrestling MediaCon spokesman.

“We are committed to finding the best possible competition for the stars of IMPACT Wrestling in order to showcase the UK wrestling scene in the best possible light.”

Any UK promotions interested in accepting the challenge should send an email to Wrestling MediaCon at
