Nearly two months ago, Impact Wrestling announced its comeback to the UK on September 9,  as a part of Wrestling MediaCon 2-day event. Details emerged today that this comeback show will be “Impact vs. the UK” as IMPACT issued a blockbuster open challenge to any UK wrestling promotion to face them in an inter-promotional series at the event.

This challenge was laid down by Ed Nordholm, President of IMPACT Wrestling. “Since we last came to the UK almost three years ago, we have seen how much the UK wrestling scene has evolved. 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,” he explained.
