List of Impact Wrestling personnel

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Impact Wrestling[1] is a professional wrestling promotion based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Impact Wrestling personnel consists of professional wrestlers, managers, play-by-play and color commentators, ring announcers, interviewers, referees, trainers, producers, script writers, and various other positions. Executives and the board of directors are listed as well.

Active wrestlers and on-screen talent appear on Impact, Xplosion, on pay-per-views and at live events. Personnel are organized below by their role in Impact Wrestling. Their ring name is on the left, and their real name is on the right. If someone is inactive for any reason, due to not working the most recent set of TV tapings, injury, suspension, or otherwise, that information is noted. Impact Wrestling refers to its female performers as "Knockouts".

As Impact Wrestling has partnerships with various international promotions (such as Mexico's Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA), Canada's Border City Wrestling, and Japan's Pro Wrestling Noah), wrestlers from those companies may also make periodic appearances on Impact programming.
