BREAKING: Impact Wrestling Officially Relocates To Canada (VIDEO)
It was a move rumoured for months that only gathered more steam when PWInsider reported a few days ago that an email was sent out by Anthem two weeks ago revealed they would be consolidating their Impact offices to Toronto, Ontario, the home city of Anthem Sports & Entertainment. For a company looking to move on from the financial burdens of past managements, the relocation to Anthem’s home country (and city) will offer far more tax advantages going forward. This decision is most likely the reason why the Impact refs all left the company last week, as it would mean many having to fly to Canada on a more ongoing basis rather than work centrally in the Orlando area.
With Anthem’s Fight Network airing shows from Smash Wrestling and Superkick’d airing on the Global Wrestling Network, not to mention Impact’s Scott D’Amore‘s Border City Wrestling a few hours away in Windsor, Ontario, there’s no shortage of promotions able to offer content for appearances, similar to the past few weeks of Impact Wrestling that saw Impact stars like Moose, Eddie Edwards, Petey Williams and Rosemary appear for other indie promotions.
