The Nationwide Hockey League is turning into enemy #1 for promotions scheduling wrestling occasions. First, AEW was affected. Now, Influence is caught within the within the rip tide and compelled to regulate.
When TNT inked a deal to air NHL video games, it left wrestling followers questioning if that will have an effect on Dynamite. The priority was answered by AEW promoting a Saturday night show for October 23 resulting from a scheduling battle for Wednesday evening of that week. It simply so occurs that Influence’s subsequent PPV can also be scheduled for October 23.
Being cozy companions with Forbidden Door motion, Influence shuffled the PPV begin time to accommodate for Dynamite. Influence’s Sure for Glory will start at 10 pm ET.
No matches have been introduced but for the Sure for Glory PPV. Influence’s Victory Highway particular occasion on the Impact Plus app goes down subsequent weekend on Saturday, September 18. That card ought to give us an concept of what to anticipate for the long run.
Victory Highway contains:
- Influence World Championship: Christian Cage (c) vs. Ace Austin
- X-Division Championship: Josh Alexander (c) vs. Chris Sabin
- Knockouts Tag Staff Championship: Rosemary & Havok (c) vs. Tasha Steelz & Savannah Evans
- Moose & W. Morrissey vs. Eddie Edwards & Sami Callihan
- Hikuleo & Chris Bey vs. FinJuice
I feel it’s a secure guess that Christian will retain. Meaning he’ll want a marquee opponent for the PPV title protection. I’m leaning towards Alexander retaining as nicely, however it’s by no means good to rely out an 8-time X-Division champion. If Sabin did handle to win the belt, a rematch could possibly be to ensure that the PPV. One different championship bout that appears to be choosing up steam is Deonna Purrazzo versus Mickie James. That may be a cash match that calls for PPV motion.
What’s your tackle the 5-hour block of wrestling with AEW and Influence? Are you prepared to remain up previous your bedtime to devour all of the enjoyable?
