IMPACT banned from Twitch

Twitch, the streaming platform that IMPACT Wrestling has been using to simulcast their television show since January 2019, has banned the promotion.

The reason for the ban is unclear, but it is believed that a racy segment involving Rob Van Dam where there was whipped cream and women in thongs with their tops off (private areas were blurred) was the reason.

Twitch’s policy on nudity and sexual content is as follows:


Nudity and sexually explicit content or activities, such as pornography, sexual acts or intercourse, and sexual services, are prohibited.

Content or activities that threaten or promote sexual violence or exploitation are strictly prohibited and may be reported to law enforcement. Child exploitation will be reported to authorities via the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

Sexually suggestive content or activities are also prohibited, although they may be allowed in educational contexts or for pre-approved licensed content, in each case subject to additional restrictions.

IMPACT Wrestling has yet to comment on the ban. It is not known how long the ban is for. For the time being, IMPACT can still be viewed on AXS TV.
