As noted, Impact Wrestling has announced a Barbed Wire Massacre match featuring LAX vs oVe will take place on Impact Wrestling next week. The bout will also be the first match to stream as part of Impact’s new deal with Twitch, and the story line will be that the match will be too brutal to air on POP TV.
For the first time in a decade. For only the third time ever.
Barbed Wire Massacre.
