After announcing its comeback to the UK last March and challenging every promotion of the country to be a part of the event, Impact Wrestling announced this morning the first matches that will take place on September 9, during Wrestling MediaCon show in Manchester. And two unique marquee matches will feature pitting IMPACT Wrestling’s top stars against the very best of Britain talents.

Sami Callihan will take on Jimmy Havoc in a Clash of hardcore wrestling icons. Callihan has built a reputation as one of the most disrespectful wrestlers on the planet – attacking management, insulting his peers and almost ending the career of Eddie Edwards in a baseball bat attack. He will face Jimmy Havoc, whose violent and bloody style of wrestling has won him a legion of fans and a collection of championships on the British independent scene.

LAX will put their IMPACT Tag Team Titles on the line against two of the UK’s most decorated stars. British high flyers Jody Fleisch and Jonny Storm have won titles all around the world in singles and Tag Team competition. They will now challenge Santana and Oritz for one of the biggest prizes in professional wrestling today.

This Manchester show will mark IMPACT Wrestling’s first live event in the U.K. in more than two years. Other top IMPACT Wrestling stars confirmed to be part of Wrestling MediaCon 2018 include former Impact World Champion Eli Drake, former Impact X-Division Champions Matt Sydal and Trevor Lee, Impact Knockouts Champion Su Yung, Eddie Edwards, Moose and Rich Swann. 

Their matches for the Manchester event will be announced each day on the IMPACT Wrestling UK Facebook page at Fans should also follow the Facebook page for details of meet and greets at Wrestling MediaCon 2018. Tickets are on sale now from more information on Wrestling MediaCon, visit
