Impact is married to Taya Valkyrie, who is the No. 1 contender to the IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Championship, now held by third-generation wrestler Tessa Blanchard, who is following in the wrestling boots of her dad (Tully Blanchard), her stepfather (Magnum TA) and her grandfather (Joe Blanchard).
IMPACT Wrestling also features Kevin “Killer” Kross, a Las Vegas resident who works as a private executive protection bodyguard for world-renowned celebrities and musicians.
Another noteworthy name on the IMPACT roster is Moose, who played 62 games in the NFL from 2006-2012 after a career at Syracuse University.
The shows in Las Vegas will be taped to air on the company’s flagship weekly TV show IMPACT!, which airs every Thursday night (10 p.m. ET) on Pop TV across the U.S. The live events will kick off nightly at 6p.m. PT.
Johnny Impact has been wrestling professionally since 2002 and is a crossover star, appearing on various TV shows and adding numerous film credits to his resume, including Boone: The Bounty Hunter, which he created, co-wrote and served as executive producer.
