Fight Network, a subsidiary of Anthem Sports & Entertainment, Inc., presents 10 all-new profiles of top stars from IMPACT Wrestling and Invicta Fighting Championships, as the popular, original series Diary returns for season two. New episodes will air on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. Each new episode of Diary also will be available on the official IMPACT Wrestling or Invicta FC YouTube Channel following their initial network premieres, every Tuesday at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT.
Diary puts the spotlight on the larger-than-life athletes of the combat sports realm, providing viewers with a rare and intimate glimpse of the people behind the personas and examining what drives them to greatness—both in and out of the cage and the squared-circle. Season two serves up 10 all-new half-hour episodes, following along with some of the biggest names from the iconic IMPACT Wrestling promotion and the trailblazers from the groundbreaking, all-female MMA organization Invicta FC, as they candidly discuss their greatest trials and triumphs while preparing for the biggest moments of their lives and careers.
Season two of Diary on February 27 delivers an in-depth look at IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander—capturing the man they call the “Walking Weapon” in the days before he finally held the promotion’s most coveted prize, as he reflects on his long journey through the grueling indie wrestling scene and prepares for a long-awaited championship opportunity. A special, 64-minute Director’s Cut of this episode, boasting over 18 minutes of unseen footage, will launch exclusively on the official IMPACT Wrestling YouTube Channel on February 28 at 12 p.m. ET.
Other season two highlights include profiles of IMPACT stars such as Knockouts Division powerhouse Jordynne Grace, “The Demon Assassin” Rosemary, blue chip brawler Bhupinder Gujjar, “The Quintessential Diva” Gisele Shaw and reigning X-Division Champion Trey Miguel; as well as Invicta FC standouts such as Jéssica Delboni, currently ranked in the top 10 among global atomweight fighters; flyweight star Karina Rodriguez, and returning veteran Kay Hansen.
