IMPACT Wrestling Star “Speedball” Mike Bailey On IMPACT’s Shows In Louisville, Travel, Movies & More

Since its inception in 2002, IMPACT has established itself as one of the largest professional wrestling organizations in the world and the premier destination for wrestling fans across the globe, enlisting legendary performers such as Ric Flair, Sting, Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash and AJ Styles — and many more — throughout its storied legacy. IMPACT’s current roster showcases a selection of world-class athletes led by World Champion Josh Alexander, World Tag Team Champions Rhino and Heath, Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace, Knockouts World Tag Team Champions The Death Dollz (Jessicka, Rosemary, Taya Valkyrie), and Digital Media Champion Joe Hendry. Other IMPACT stars include “Speedball” Mike Bailey, Moose, Rich Swann, Sami Callihan, Matt Cardona, Eric Young, PCO and Trey Miguel, while its Knockouts Division has Gisele Shaw, Mickie James, Deonna Purrazzo and Su Yung.

On November 18 and 19, 2022, IMPACT Wrestling presents back-to-back nights of live pro wrestling, as originating from Old Forester’s Paristown Hall. The action on the 18th will air live on IMPACT Plus and YouTube for IMPACT Ultimate Insiders. The following night on the 19th, the company’s television trucks will capture that in-ring action for upcoming episodes of IMPACT’s flagship weekly TV show, #IMPACTonAXSTV, which airs on Thursday at 8:00 PM EST on AXS TV in the U.S., Fight Network in Canada and Impact Insiders on YouTube. Among the stars who will be in Louisville for these shows are Josh Alexander, Jordynne Grace, Frankie Kazarian, Bully Ray, Heath, Rhino, Eddie Edwards, Brian Myers, Ace Austin, Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, Deonna Purrazzo and “Speedball” Mike Bailey.

On November 8, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with “Speedball” Mike Bailey via Zoom, which you can watch here. Beyond IMPACT’s upcoming shows in Louisville, we talked travel, television and career goals. More on Bailey — a former IMPACT X Division Champion — can be found here and here.
