IMPACT Wrestling has had to make another change to tonight’s Hard to Kill show with Jake Something unable to wrestle on the pre-show.

The company has announced that the pre-show four-way match will now feature the IMPACT debut of “Speedball” Mike Bailey, who is replacing Jake Something. The promotion did not state the reason for the switch.

Bailey will wrestle against Chris Bey, Ace Austin, and Laredo Kid on the pre-show at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The IInspiration are also off tonight’s show after they came into contact with someone that later tested positive for COVID-19. They had been scheduled to defend the Knockouts tag team titles against Madison Rayne & Tenille Dashwood.

The pay-per-view takes place from The Factory in Dallas, Texas, and begins at 8.
