Impact Wrestling viewership opposite NXT

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Tuesday’s Impact Wrestling television show delivered 102,000 viewers for AXS TV on Tuesday, according to Wade Keller of The prior eight weeks of Impact averaged 155,000 viewers.

Powell’s POV: NXT delivered 849,000 viewers for the Super Tuesday edition, which aired opposite the first showing of Impact Wrestling. The timing was rough for Impact in that they did a major title change on Tuesday with Eric Young beating Eddie Edwards to win the Impact World Championship. Impact produced 171,000 viewers for the August 25 edition.

  1. No Impact review this week? I guess it wasn’t as important a show as the darlings AEW & NXT. Well, there are fans of Impact that don’t really care what happens in the favorite sons of the wrestling journalistic community. How about an Impact review? Some of us care about Impact.

  2. These ratings fixation is dumb and archaic. I watched Impact but I don’t watch it at the first showing. I have stuff to do. I watch it later on or on their app. The 1990s is long gone. Money is in the mobile platforms.

    • Streaming is definitely in the mix, but it hasn’t taken over in pro wrestling by any means. WWE’s television deals are the obvious proof. Heck, Anthem acquired AXS, so I think even Impact’s parent company would disagree with your assessment.
