The deal now includes the weekly premiere of the flagship two-hour show IMPACT!, streaming on Friday nights at 10 pm ET and the renewal will include the production of more exclusive content  on the Twitch platform, including original weekly programming, pre- and post-shows, live monthly specials, weekly airings of Xplosion which features never-before-seen matches, first-person streams and more.

“Since debuting the weekly premiere of IMPACT! on Twitch this past January, we have been committed to growing the passionate professional wrestling community on the platform and the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Ed Nordholm, president of IMPACT Wrestling. “We have grown our subscriber and follower bases significantly, while spreading our reach to new audiences. With our increased slate of exclusive content hosted by the likes of Melissa Santos, Don Callis and top IMPACT Wrestling stars, fans have been able to interact with our larger-than-life personalities like never before.”

Jane Weedon, director of business development at Twitch, added: “IMPACT Wrestling has quickly established itself as a leading wrestling channel on our platform. We are excited by the potential to expand on the content delivered by IMPACT Wrestling to the Twitch community, and their commitment to delivering live, shared, interactive and entertaining experiences for our audiences.”

IMPACT! showcases top professional wrestling stars such as IMPACT World Champion Brian Cage, plus Rob Van Dam, Moose, Eddie Edwards, Sami Callihan, Rich Swann, Michael Elgin, the high-flying X-Division and the Knockouts, including Champion Taya Valkyrie, Tessa Blanchard, Rosemary and Su Yung.
