IMPACT Wrestling’s summer really heats up this Thursday with our first show from the Manhattan Center in the heart of New York City! New Executive Director Kurt Angle has put together a PACKED lineup – and will be on-hand to present the much-anticipated return of the SIX-SIDED RING!

In our main event, LASHLEY battles JEFF HARDY with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line! Can Hardy find a way to stop the juggernaut and regain the gold – or will the World Champion continue to annihilate all challengers?

Bully Ray’s war for revenge continues in front of his hometown crowd in NYC as he and Tommy Dreamer join forces to battle EC3 and “The War Machine” Rhino!

With Destination X just weeks away on July 30, can Austin Aries retain his newly won X-Division Championship to gain another shot at the World Title? Kurt Angle has one last major test for Aries this Thursday – he’ll defend the gold in an Eight-Man X-Division Gauntlet Match featuring Sanada, Tigre Uno, the Wolves, DJ Z and Crazzy Steve!

Also on the broadcast, Bobby Roode will team with Eric Young to take on MVP and Kenny King, plus the Knockouts will be in action as Madison Rayne gets her chance for revenge against Brittany in a No Disqualification match!

All this and so much more on Thursday’s must-see IMPACT broadcast on Spike TV at 9/8c, from New York City!
