WWE Namedrops IMPACT Wrestling On SmackDown

WWE Namedrops IMPACT Wrestling On SmackDown

The forbidden door took the wrestling world by storm last year, when stars from AEW, IMPACT, NJPW and others crossed over to create several interpromotional dream matches.

One company that never took part in the Forbidden Door goodness was WWE, but that has changed on tonight’s (January 7) episode of SmackDown.

On the show, WWE revealed many names for the 2022 Women’s Royal Rumble match, one of which was former WWE star Mickie James.

It is important to note that James is the current reigning IMPACT Knockouts Champion, which you will know, as WWE made sure to have Pat McAfee mention it on air.

This is the first time WWE has mentioned IMPACT Wrestling on air since April 2018, when Kurt Angle jokingly told Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn that ‘TNA is hiring’, but this is the first time the company has been actively put over by WWE on television.
