Impact Wrestling Announces First-Ever Shows In Australia

Impact Wrestling is set to make its debut "down under" this summer.

The promotion announced that it will be coming to Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia for the Impact Down Under Tour on June 30 and July 1 at the Equex Center. The two shows will be funded in part by the New South Wales government as part of its #VisitWagga campaign. The tweet promises "four days of activities" and "two marquee wrestling shows." There is no word on whether the shows will be taped for Impact's show on AXS TV or broadcast in some other capacity, if at all.


Impact Wrestling has done many international shows in the past, including numerous tapings in the United Kingdom, as well as a landmark taping in India in 2017. As it stands, the Impact Down Under Tour is set to take place on the road to Slammiversary, which is set for July 15 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

The company recently received a spike in interest, as it signed former "WWE SmackDown" Women's Champion Trinity Fatu (formerly known as Naomi), her first pro wrestling booking since she left WWE in 2022 alongside Mercedes Mone over frustrations with the WWE Women's Tag Team Division. The two women were Women's Tag Champions at the time and abandoned their titles in protest over the direction of the division.


As it stands, Impact's next major show will be Under Siege at the end of the month, where Steve Maclin will defend his newly-won Impact World Championship against former Ring of Honor World Champion PCO.
