Impact Wrestling’s Twitch channel is back up and running, as the ban issued from the streaming platform has ended. The channel received a temporary ban after airing the Rob Van Dam, Katie Forbes and Jennifer Barlow segment that featured partial nudity and whipped cream make-outs. Impact, who was attempting to get the ban rescinded, posted to Twitter today noting that the channel is back.
It’s not clear whether Impact’s attempts were successful, or whether the ban’s time period simply came to an end. Twitch “bans” are actually suspensions, which if temporary last between one and 30 days. Suspensions can be indefinite, though Impact’s suspension was likely only temporary as a first offense with no explicit nudity. Matt Hardy responded to Impact Wrestling’s joke with a compliment.
Our Twitch channel is back up and running. Add it to the list of things that are hard to kill. https://t.co/nFjjBnYbDL
