Impact Wrestling will return to Florida for a week of tapings in early 2018.
This is noteworthy for a few reasons...

- The promotion reportedly moved most of its business functions to parent company Anthem Entertainment’s home in Canada. The last filming they did was in Ottawa after their Bound for Glory pay-per-view (PPV) shot there at the last minute. They always said they wanted to tape at multiple locales, and while this is likely back to their historic home at Universal Studios, it’s an early indication everything won’t be happening North of the border.
- Most of the big names fans were speculating might be leaving due to the latest round of cost-cutting talk (like Bobby Lashley and Ethan Carter III) or even talent linked by dirt-screen reports to WWE (like Eddie Edwards and Chelsea “Laurel Van Ness” Green) are still pictured in the announcement.
- It’ll be the first taping under Impact’s latest new regime, Scott D’Amore and Don Callis.
What surprises await? Will these finally be the episodes that build momentum for Anthem-era Impact?
