Several readers sent us a link to a clip (see below) from the GFW Anthology special that aired on pay-per-view. The footage below was taped in 2015 and was meant to be used for a TV pilot. The shows were never picked up and have not aired until recently on pay-per-view. Most of the social media reaction to this clip seems to be that GFW/Impact was attempting to make it sound like Roode had made the jump from NXT to GFW. Click on the video below and judge for yourself:
so how do they deal with the GFW Amped footage being 3 years old?

On his podcast, Jim Cornette talked about his recent departure from Impact Wrestling. There is no bad blood and if they return to Orlando, perhaps, the door would be open for him to return.
Next week’s episode of Impact Wrestling will be themed as Victory Road.
Set for next week:
Petey Williams vs. Trevor Lee for the X-Division Championship
OVE will challenge LAX for the Tag Team Championship
Johnny Impact will challenge Eli Drake for the Global Championship
