Impact, Indies, and Insanity: February 10, 2022
By Andy PG on 10th February 2022
Tonight on Impact: Brian Myers goes after W. Morrissey in a No DQ match; Mickie James and Chelsea Green meet in non-title action; The OGK of Matt Taven and Mike Bennett team up against Rich Swann and Rhino; Deonna Purrazzo in action; and on the pre-show, it’s Alisha Edwards against Lady Frost.
RIP to AAA announcer Arturo “El Rudo” Rivera.
Your NBA on TNT doubleheader is Heat/Pelicans, then Bucks/Suns. Among the players moved today are Ben Simmons, James Harden, and Kristaps Porzingis. My hometown Wizards get Porzingis, Ish Smith, Vernon Carey, some money, and a 2 in three separate deals, giving up Spencer Dinwiddie, Montrezl Harrell, Aaron Holliday, Davis Bertans, and a 2. Porzingis/Beal for next year will be interesting.
Meanwhile, in wrestling:
