It has been a very up and down rough few years for Impact Wrestling. Between 2013-2017 they lost all of their star wrestlers who made the company what it was and what drew in most of their viewers. Wrestlers like Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, Sting, Jeff Hardy, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe, Abyss, and many more. They basically had to restart from scratch with a new roster and new talent back in 2018. They have gone through different owners, have almost gone bankrupt, and it was rumored multiple times that they’d be completely shutting down the company. But now it’s 2020 and Impact is the best it’s been in years. They’re not bringing in as many viewers as WWE or AEW is, but they’re consistently putting on a good show every week. The following sections are some reasons I believe they’re making a real comeback finally.

Capitalizing on WWE’s mistakes

Due to the pandemic WWE let quite a few of their wrestlers go from the company. Impact picked up Brian Myers, EC III, Heath Slater. Eric Young, and the Good Brothers Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows. All of these guys were misused in the WWE but are very talented in the ring and on the mic. The possibilities are endless for what they could do with these guys.

Return of the Motor City Machine Guns

In Impact Wrestling’s prime when they were known as TNA, the Motor City Machine Guns were one of the best tag teams in the world. They made they’re return to the company at Slammiversary and then won the tag team titles on the June 22nd edition of Impact. There are some underrated tag teams in the company that they could have great matches with. I’m excited to see what the future holds for them in Impact.

Chris Bey

At Slammiversary Chris Bey defeated Willie Mack to become the new X-Division Champion. In my opinion which may be a hot take, Chris Bey is one of the best and most talented wrestlers in the world currently. I believe Bey deserves a lengthy run and will put on some terrific matches while defending the X-Division title.

Eddie Edwards as Impact World Champion

Eddie Edwards is one of Impact Wrestling’s most decorated wrestlers of all time. His list of accolades in the company is incredible. Having him as the companies number one guy right now was a great decision by management. He can carry the company as the main champion and put a good match on with anyone. I expect guys like Moose, Eric Young, and maybe even Brian Myers being in the title picture.
