Impact Wrestling Notes from Saturday’s Taping

There were several news items coming out of Saturday's set of Impact Wrestling tapings with the announcement of their next major show, the main event for that show and a notable departure from the company.

Impact Wrestling held their fourth night of tapings on Saturday at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

These episodes will not be airing for a long time with this week’s set of tapings airing throughout the next three months.

Saturday’s tapings featured the announcement that the promotion will be holding an event called “Impact Redemption” on Sunday, April 22nd and is expected to air on pay-per-view. The main event of that show will feature Austin Aries defending the Impact Wrestling title against Alberto Del Rio.

Saturday’s taping also featured the return of the “Feast or Fired Match” with the following briefcases handed out:
-Moose: Impact title shot
-Petey Williams: X division title shot
-Eli Drake: Impact tag title shot
-Ethan Carter III: Fired

EC 3 was expected to be finishing up with the promotion at this week’s tapings, although based on the television schedule his “firing” won’t air on Impact for quite a while.

Matt Sydal is the Grand champion but is turning heel with Josh Mathews being paired with Sydal as his “spiritual advisor”. They appear to be retiring the Grand championship as it was presented by Sydal to Mathews as a gift.

Impact continues their schedule with tapings on Sunday and Monday at Universal Studios.
