Emma joins Impact Wrestling (for a show on their Twitch channel)

WrestlePro on Twitter

During the episode of Impact Wrestling which debuted last night (Jan. 25), the promotion announced a new show for their channel on the streaming site Twitch.

The announcement was noteworthy for a few reasons - Impact pushing their presence on the Amazon-owned platform, more evidence of their partnering with independent promotions and for the ex-WWE star whose name is atop the card.

Feb. 3’s WrestlePro Brace for Impact will be available on Impact’s Twitch channel the following Saturday (Feb. 10).

If that show sounds familiar, it might be from stories like this one announcing Tenille “Emma” Dashwood’s first independent dates following the end of her 90 day non-compete with WWE.

Dashwood was released at the end of Oct. 2017, and after a break is poised to be very busy in Spring of 2018. Could her schedule include joining Impact’s Knockouts division?

We might start to find out when this show streams next Satuday.

Here’s the full line-up for Brace for Impact, which you’ll be able to watch next Saturday here:

  • Tenille Dashwood (fka Emma) vs. Angelina Love
  • Fallah Bahh vs. Alberto El Patron
  • Bobby Wayward vs. Eddie Edwards
  • Chris Payne vs. Matt Sydal
  • Bobby Lashley vs. Danny Maff
  • Braxton Sutter and Allie vs. Nikos Rikos and Nikki Adams

Twitch is stepping up its wrestling game with more partners than just Impact, too. A separate press release they sent today (Jan. 26) hypes a week-plus worth of wrestling on their site (while curiously not mentioning Dashwood’s WrestlePro show):
