Right before the ref counts 10, Twitch is getting back into the ring with a two-week celebration of all things wrestling and we’ve saved front row seats for you.
With WrestleCon (professional wrestling’s premiere fan event) set to begin this week from New Orleans, we’re partnering with IMPACT! Wrestling and House of Hardcore to bring you incredible events you can’t see anywhere else. Twitch Partner Tangent will be streaming IRL from WrestleCon too, bringing you up close to some of your favorite wrestlers. We’ll also be highlighting some of the best wrestling content from other Twitch Partners before, during, and after the Con. It’ll be like a suplex of wrestling goodness, only without the whole ‘painfully being thrown onto the mat’ part.
IMPACT! begins their WrestleCon coverage Thursday April 5 on /impactwrestling, but we’re starting the party TODAY. Here are some highlights from the wrestling community that you won’t want to miss. All times are listed in PDT:
Co-stream IMPACT! Wrestling on your own channel
As any wrestling fan knows, the person calling the match can make a huge difference. So we’re putting the power of the microphone directly into your hands with co-streaming enabled for all of IMPACT!’s WrestleCon coverage, including the Lucha Underground vs IMPACT! event on April 6. Put your spin on the broadcasts with play-by-play, color commentary, or whatever else you want to bring to the party. If you decide to co-stream, please include #impactwrestling in the title and make sure any VODs aren’t being saved.
This is just week one of our wrestling extravaganza. We’ve got even more lined up for next week, so stay tuned to the Twitch Blog and our Wrestling directory so you don’t miss any of the action.
