Isues with Impact TV Taping Ring Set Up

PWInsider also reports that Impact Wrestling had issues yesterday afternoon as they didnít have a wrestling ring set up two hours before the Digital Destruction event was supposed to start streaming on Twitch. Per the report, the Sports Arena in St. James, New York had an issue where it double-booked the arena, and the set up could not start until the previously scheduled soccer game had ended.

The New York Wrestling Connection and Shane OíNeil reportedly had his team pitch in to help get the setup ready by 4:39 pm, which was just 19 minutes before the show had to make it to air. The backup plan was to apparently air a pre-show with talents and announcers to stall for time until the ring was ready.

Additionally, the St. James card reportedly had about 400-500 attendees. The Great Muta also signed autographs before the event, but he did not work a match at the show. Meanwhile, Brian Cage did a signing at the House of Hardcore/Impact event, but he did not appear in the ring.
