Well, okay, I don't want to oversell it, so good might be a bit of a stretch. It's not like, NXT/AEW level stuff going on here. But, if you're like me, you gave up on this unkillable little promotion years ago. As it happened, I was flipping through the channels a few weeks ago, and I landed on Impact for their Thanksgiving special, which was basically them doing a Southpaw Regional Wrestling bit for an entire episode, complete with matches. It was fun, and they've got a handful of real talent lined up down there right now, so the next week I gave them another shot. And then another, and you know what? This is a fun, breezy two-hour show. Not every match is great (actually, a lot of matches are not great), but the booking is logical, and so far every match has gone to a finish that moves things forward (I am looking at you RAW and Smackdown). And their bits! Such bits they have! Right now, Su Yung is doing a thing where Rosemary literally murdered her, but she came back to life as Suzie, a friendly lady with the intelligence of a small child. Now, James Mitchell is trying to figure out how to make that work with her and Jessica Havok, and it's just dumb enough to be great. And last week, Johnny Swinger took Joey Ryan to wrestlers' court, presided over by judge Tommy Dreamer, in what may be the single best wrestling bit I've ever seen. No description I can give it will do it justice, but I absolutely loved the fact that Joey Ryan wound up having to play the straight man here. Other than that, they're running Sami Callihan vs. Tessa Blanchard for their world title at their next PPV (Hard to Kill, the best possible name for one of this company's events), and that's been pretty fun, and Ken Shamrock appears to be some sort of Minoru Suzuki-like Murder Grandpa.

Anyhoo, if you've got the time, I actually recommend catching up with Impact. It's worth it to find the Thanksgiving special (Impact Provincial Wrestling Federation), and definitely run down the wrestlers' court segment. Impact is uh, maybe good, but definitely fun.

I actually gave it a go last year and found it to be mostly inoffensive fun with the mix of Lucha Bros, identity crisis Matt Sydal, thrift shop Sanity/OVE, Princess Jimmy Jacobs, and other castoffs from WWF/Lucha Underground but found there's too much wrestling in a week.

Tried to give it another look, but couldn't find it on Hulu. I'll look it up again since Su Yung's current gimmick sounds interesting and it can't be worse than Raw.

"Tell your dad I said hello, Brother."

That is the single best advertisement they could ever make for their streaming service.

Attention!
Rhino as the Butcher in Impact Provincial Wrestling Federation:



Rhyno as the Butcher in Southpaw Regional Wrestling:



IPWF and SRW are in the same universe and timeline. I don't know what this means, but I am sure it vitally important.



It's the most important meal of the day.
