IMPACT Wrestling Still Talking To AXS TV
As reported by the Wrestling Observer newsletter, IMPACT Wrestling continues to negotiate with AXS TV regarding moving their show onto the network. While some in the company had hoped that they’d be off Pursuit by summer, talks have slowed. However, some of the negotiations involve IMPACT parent company Anthem purchasing AXS outright, which could shake things up and give the brand a more stable home.

In the same report, Dave Meltzer predicts that the first episode of AEW on TNT should pull in around 800,000 viewers. This is based partially on the numbers for TNT’s Countdown to All In show. That program was barely promoted and a pre-taped broadcast, drawing in less than 400,00 viewers.
