Impact Homecoming takes place tonight at The Asylum in Nashville, Tennessee. Our live coverage of the event will get going at 8 pm ET!
Wrestling Inc. is sitting ringside for tonight's PPV and we have a first look at what the ring and stage looks like for the event. A couple notes from the building: the venue is being described as "intimate" with a couple hundred seats, but the venue is already mostly full with fans. Also, indie wrestler, Marko Stunt, is in the building, walking around with a cane and in street clothes.

We were at today's Homecoming VIP event that took place before the event, which featured a Q&A with Impact Wrestling President Ed Nordholm and Impact Wrestling Executive VP Don Callis. Konnan, Dezmond Xavier, Zachary Wentz, and Dave Crist appeared later on at the event. We will have transcribed highlights from the Q&A on the site later on.
