IMPACT News: IMPACT Continues Low Viewership Trend This Week (8/9/18)

Published

on

Last night’s episode of IMPACT featured a World Championship match in which the Austin Aries retained his title against Eddie Edwards thanks to an assist from Killer Kross.

This week’s episode of IMPACT brought in 168,000 viewers which is down from last week’s show that brought in 248,000 viewers which is a new low for 2018. This episode is also the second lowest in the show’s 16-year history since mid-December from last year.

Last night’s show was ranked #127 on the Cable Top 150 while last week was ranked #138.

When it came to the 18-49 demographic the show that topped the night was the NFL preseason. Both games were ranked #1 and #2, bringing in 3.4 million viewers total. When looking at the night as a whole, the FOX News show Hannity topped the night, bringing in 2.2790 million viewers.

Here is the breakdown for the last four episodes of IMPACT:

July 19th Episode: 275,000 viewers
July 26th Episode: 299,000 viewers (post-Slammiversary episode)
August 2nd Episode: 248,000 viewers
August 9th Episode: 168,000 viewers

Ja’Von’s Take: The last time that IMPACT had 300,000-plus viewers in ratings was the July 5th, 2018 episode. It seems that IMPACT is in a ratings lull as for the past two weeks they have had record lows. When it comes to the wrestling business ratings are not the end-all, be-all. IMPACT has continued to put on great shows this year and fans have been stoked about all the great matches. Ratings will continue to be low for a while as we head into the football season, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. Let’s see what the YouTube numbers are like before we begin to panic.

ROH News: KUSHIDA To Make His ROH Return At Death Before Dishonor TV Taping

Published

on

Ring Of Honor will be making its way to the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada next month on Saturday, September 29th for television tapings for Death Before Dishonor weekend and today, ROH announced that New Japan Pro Wrestling’s KUSHIDA will be returning for the event:

KUSHIDA SIGNED FOR DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR TV TAPING IN VEGAS

KUSHIDA, one of the top junior heavyweights in the world, makes his return to Ring of Honor at the Death Before Dishonor TV Taping in Las Vegas on Sept.29.

While New Japan Pro-Wrestling is KUSHIDA’s home promotion, he also has made his presence felt in ROH in recent years. The five-time former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and two-time winner of the prestigious Best of the Super Juniors tournament held the ROH World Television Title for more than four months last year after winning it from Marty Scurll, and he came up just short against then-ROH World Champion Cody at Global Wars in October.

At the Best in the World pay-per-view this past June, KUSHIDA pushed Jay Lethal to the limit before ultimately losing to the man who would go on to win the ROH World Title the following night. KUSHIDA immediately got back in the win column before returning to Japan by defeating Jonathan Gresham on a recent episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling.”

Who in ROH will KUSHIDA attempt to take Back to the Future or trap in a Hoverboard Lock next? Join us in person at the Death Before Dishonor TV Taping to find out!

Death Before Dishonor Weekend returns to Las Vegas, the Fight Capital of the World, LIVE on pay-per-view and for HonorClub VIP on Friday, Sept. 28 at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT, and returns the next night for an international television taping with all of your favorite ROH stars! Championships will be decided and feuds ended and you can watch it all LIVE IN VEGAS!

Keep it locked into ROHWrestling.com and the ROH App for more talent and match announcements!
