IMPACT! Wrestling is a growing wrestling entertainment promotion that has been in operation for 20 years and, from its inception, has been considered the second-largest wrestling promotion behind World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Onstage Systems began partnering with IMPACT! Wrestling in 2019 to help with their wrestling event production. IMPACT! Wrestling produces wrestling events across the United States and Mexico, where Onstage Systems served as part of IMPACT! Wrestling’s traveling production team.
The touring schedule for IMPACT! Wrestling came to a halt in early 2020 with the COVID-19 shutdown in the United States. Onstage Systems helped them reset production to their home studio in Nashville, where IMPACT! Wrestling filming continued on a closed set. IMPACT! Wrestling partners with Onstage Systems to bring everything needed for their filming except the ring and the cameras. Without a live audience, Onstage Systems needed to bring the production value to a new level to offset a live crowd’s missing energy and excitement.
Onstage Systems travels from Dallas to Nashville, with all the lighting, audio, and additional equipment needed, approximately once a month to film episodes with IMPACT! Wrestling over multiple days. While in Nashville for filming, Onstage Systems helps IMPACT! Wrestling produce a Pay-Per-View special and IMPACT! Wrestling’s broadcast episodes. IMPACT episodes are broadcast on television and simulcast online through Twitch. In addition to broadcast episodes and Pay-Per-View specials, Onstage Systems helps IMPACT! Wrestling produce additional content for their online-only service, IMPACT Plus.
Wrestling event production is not new to Onstage Systems. Our company has a long history of more than 40 years of operation with experience producing ring sports events. Our pedigree includes wrestling shows, boxing fights, and mixed martial arts events that we have helped produce across the country.
Onstage Systems is excited to continue partnering with IMPACT! Wrestling through 2021 and hopeful of returning to filming live audience episodes and return to touring later this year.
