Don Callis has opened up on the importance and changes that will be brought along with Impact Wrestling’s new television deal.
Just last week it was revealed that they inked a deal with Pursuit Channel to air their flagship show in the United States starting on January 11th. It also means a new night for the show as it’s moving from Thursday’s to Friday’s.
Don Callis, who is part of the Impact Wrestling creative team, talked about this as well as other topics on his Killing The Town podcast. This is when he stated that fans should expect a sexier and edgier, maybe even a little more hardcore Impact Wrestling programming as a result of this move of networks from Pop TV to Pursuit Channel.
“This week we announced our move from Pop TV which was a great partner for us. A lot of fans thought, ‘Wow, you guys should be on a different network with a different demographic’ so we announced this week we’re moving to Pursuit which is an exciting thing for me. When you talk about how you deal with your content as a company because our parent company Anthem owns not only the Fight Network and Game TV, they also own a significant stake in Pursuit. It’s a great strategic move for us, and I think people are going to love to see a sexier, edgier, maybe even a little more hardcore Impact Wrestling. I’m really, really pumped about that.”
