Mike Johnson of PW Insider reports that IMPACT Wrestling may be looking for a new television partner after being moved to the 10PM time slot by the company’s current network POP.

Johnson was asked the following,

“Since Impact Wrestling is being pushed back to a 10 pm start time, are they looking for a new network or sticking with Pop in 2019? If they are staying on the network, will Impact try to convince Pop to let them do an edgier TV-14 rated show since they are in the 10 pm slot? I mean Impact has to try something, anything to get more viewers.”

Johnson then replied,

“We’ve heard the company has been looking for a potential new TV partner.  Pop moving them to 10 PM can’t be seen as anything but a major step backwards in the relationship between the two sides.  I don’t think you can say Impact isn’t trying to be edgy when they ran a storyline where a CHILD was almost killed!  Going to a more tawdry, violent product isn’t going to help.”

Since being forced into the 10PM time slot IMPACT’s ratings have taken a severe hit, beginning with its first episode after the change, which saw IMPACT Wrestling’s viewers drop below the 100,000 mark for the first time in history.
