Impact has added a digital media title to its ranks, and it looks like both men and women can compete for it.
Impact unveiled its digital media championship this week, and it looks like male wrestlers and Knockouts will be eligible to compete in it.
Every promotion needs a core set of titles. A world championship, a women’s title and team belts. As to what a promotion chooses to build on that foundation when it comes to other titles, that depends on their creativity and imagination. Impact wrestling has always been pretty creative when it comes to this corner of the business, and that has continued to prove it via the reveal of a brand new championship this week.
During this week’s episode of Impact TV, a video package aired announcing a tournament for its new digital media championship. The thing about the title is that for the most part it will only be defended in shows that air online. Whether through Impact’s YouTube channel or on Impact Plus. The package also gives the impression that both men and women will be able to compete for the title.
While this has yet to be confirmed by Impact, the video, which you can check out above, features Knockouts like Tenille Dashwood and Chelsea Green alongside some of the male stars who are likely to be part of the tournament. Support has yet to be announced, but the first matches will take place on October 5. The tournament final and first-ever digital media champion will be crowned later this month at Bound For Glory.
bound for fame
Speaking of Bound For Glory, a number of matches have now been confirmed for what is one of Impact’s biggest shows of the year. AEW’s Christian Cage will defend his Impact World Title against Josh Alexander, and Deonna Purrazzo will put the Knockouts title on the line against Mickie James. A gauntlet match and a Division X title fight have also been announced.
There’s also a very good chance that a few former WWE Superstars will appear during Bound For Glory. The promotion’s EVP teased that Buddy Murphy and Braun Strowman could be on the show. It was also widely rumored that the Impact would be where Bray Wyatt landed. However, it’s unclear if his non-competition will be over in time for him to show up at Bound For Glory.
