— Matt Hardy has been pulled from this week’s Impact Wrestling live events in Ohio and Indiana. The organization has released the match lineups and he is not listed for the events despite being previously advertised.
It was reported yesterday that company officials suspended Hardy due to continuously arriving late to events.
— Christopher Daniels is featured in Impact Wrestling’s latest “Why Wrestling Matters” video. The former TNA X Division Champion discusses what drives his passion and dedication for professional wrestling.
“People are only going to care about something if we care about it and we care about wrestling,” Daniels says. “Without Impact Wrestling, what’s going to happen to professional wrestling? It seems like everybody else wants to be; they’re ashamed of wrestling, they wanna forget that it’s wrestling. It’s almost like they’re making it a footnote or sidebar.
“I’m not a football fan, I’m not a baseball fan, I don’t follow basketball, but I followed professional wrestling since I was eight years old. These guys were my heroes. I feel like the glory days of two guys battling to see who was the better man, that’s what Impact Wrestling is bringing back to the forefront.
