The live show will air from Anthem’s LA Live studio in Los Angeles, CA with the go-home build for the Impact x NJPW Multiverse United pay-per-view, which airs later tonight.
The live Impact will feature expert analysis for tonight’s pay-per-view, plus the Impact in-ring debut of Miyu Yamashita, who will also compete at Multiverse United later tonight. The live show will also feature a taped match between injured Impact World Champion Josh Alexander and NJPW Strong Openweight Champion KENTA. The bout was taped as a dark match at the February 25 TV tapings, before Impact announced Alexander’s injury and relinquishing of the title. This will be the last Alexander match to air for some time.
