IMPACT Wrestling is adding a one-hour program to its Tuesday schedule. Called “Before the IMPACT,” it will debut next Tuesday, February 16, on AXS TV at 7 p.m. ET. Hosting the program is Nashville-based sportscaster Jon Burton. He’ll be joined by Gia Miller and the former voice of IMPACT, Josh Matthews.
According to Matthews, who is also serving as the show’s senior producer, the show will feature “in-depth previews of the biggest matches, exclusive interviews with IMPACT Wrestling stars, behind-the-scenes access you won’t see anywhere else and an exclusive match each week.” It will also feature an “Iceman’s Intel” segment where George Iceman will share “exclusive news on the pro-wrestling industry.”
“Before the IMPACT will be IMPACT Wrestling’s version of a pregame show,” said IMPACT Executive Vice-President Scott D’Amore. “Fans have been asking for more IMPACT action on AXS TV and we’re excited to debut a new show and format with BTI.”
