Impact Wrestling is a professional wrestling promotion based in Nashville, Tennessee. Impact Wrestling personnel consists of professional wrestlers, managers, play-by-play and color commentators, ring announcers, interviewers, referees, trainers, producers, script writers, and various other positions. Executives and the board of directors are listed as well.

Active wrestlers and on-screen talent appear on Impact, pay-per-views and at untelevised live events. Personnel are organized below by their role in Impact Wrestling. Their ring name is on the left, and their real name is on the right. Impact Wrestling refers to its female performers as "Knockouts".

Impact Wrestling has partnerships with various national and international promotions, such as All Elite Wrestling (AEW), the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), Major League Wrestling (MLW), and Mexico's Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide (AAA). As such, wrestlers from these companies may also make periodic appearances on Impact programming.

Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) serves as the developmental territory for Impact Wrestling, therefore OVW talent may also periodically appear on Impact as well.[1]
