According to Sportskeeda, they’ve reached out to Anthem Sports, the parent company of Impact Wrestling on comments on the latest development, and were informed that WWE was duly allowed to use their footage in return for a mention of GWN. The report said;
“IMPACT Wrestling collaborated with WWE on the project and sub-licensed the footage to them for use in their original productions. Accordingly, WWE issued a courtesy for GWN when the footage airs.”
The latest episode of WWE Network’s Table for 3 featured the RAW GM Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, and the SmackDown Live Commissioner, Shane McMahon. During the show, they mentioned Impact, and even used footage owned by the company and equally aired an advertisement for GWN at the end of the show.
