This week’s episode of Impact Wrestling saw the returns of Jim Cornette, Taryn Terrell and Petey Williams.
Cornette is a new on-air figure that ‘fired’ Bruce Prichard, Terrell interfered in Gail Kim’s Knockouts title match, likely setting up Gail’s final feud, and Williams ran to Sonjay Dutt’s aid in the X Division Championship ladder match.
The end of tonight’s show featured a teaser for “Johnny Impact”, the GFW name for John Hennigan aka Johnny Mundo. Johnny referred to himself as the “Thursday Night Delight” and talked about being powerful enough to appear on Impact TV while being the AAA and Lucha Underground Champion.

Additionally, Josh Mathews made mention of the ‘Global Wrestling Network’, an over-the-top content (OTT) app / network that would feature full episodes of Impact Wrestling and would be available soon. No other details were mentioned.
