Published

on

IMPACT this week featured a Street Fight between LAX and The OGz in the main event which saw LAX defeat the OGz and reclaim their stolen tag team championships. So how did they fair in viewership?

IMPACT this week brought in 210,000 viewers which is a 25% increase from last week’s near historic low that brought in 168,000 viewers. The historic low is still the December 14th, 2017 episode of IMPACT.

This week’s episode was ranked #112 on the Cable Top 150 while last week’s show was ranked #127. When it came to the 18-49 demographic of the night the NFL Preseason was #1 bringing in 2.562 million viewers. FOX’s news show Hannity still topped the night overall with 3.086 million viewers.

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

July 26th Episode: 299,000 viewers (post-Slammiversary episode)
August 2nd Episode: 248,000 viewers
August 9th Episode: 168,000 viewers
August 16th Episode: 210,000 viewers

Ja’von’s Take: Last week’s episode of IMPACT was a near historic low in viewership overall but is the current low for this year. When looking at the viewership gor this week it seems that IMPACT is on the rise. I think the reason for the increase in viewership this week is due to the street fight main event between LAX and the OGz when you look at the YouTube Report any dealing with the LAX Civil War is almost always on the top 5. Seeing this big of an increase for IMPACT is HUGE this with as they went up against the second week of the NFL Pre-season. Anytime they go up against another sporting event numbers seem to drop but it seems that a good bit of fans chose IMPACT over the game. IMPACT seems to be in a good place right now and are in the fast lane to their new special coming up in two weeks entitled ReDefined. We already have one match announce for the special and that’s Fenix vs Brian Cage for the X-division Championship which should be a great match and possibly steal the show. Don’t forget to checkout tomorrow’s YouTube Report to see who came out on top this week for IMPACT.

News here! Viking Name Change, Star Moved To Raw, AEW Signings and More!

Vikings Get A Name Change

Many fans and wrestling personalities commented on the War Raiders name change to the Viking Experience. Now, it looks like the WWE has changed the teams name again. They will now be known as the Viking Raiders according to their WWE.com bio.

Jason’s Take

I get that WWE wants to name outside teams with their own in house names, but I still don’t understand why they were renamed from War Machine. I could have lived with War Raiders as well, but what do I know.

Cesaro Moved To RAW

Earlier today, we told you about the superstars that are moving to SmackDown Live. Now it appears that a superstar from the blue brand will be moving to RAW. POST Wrestling is reporting that Cesaro will be moving to RAW, effectively ending The Bar.

Jason’s Take

Cesaro and Sheamus had a great run as a tag team, and its a shame that both of them are not moving over to RAW, as I feel there is still some mileage left in the team.

AEW Signs 4 More

AEW continues to add talent to what is already shaping up to be an impressive roster. The signings include Leva Bates, Peter Avalon, and the tag team Private Party.

Jason’s Take

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; AEW is already shaping up to have one of the more impressive female rosters in North America. Here is hoping that it will live up to the hype.

WWE Holding Tryout In China

WWE continues to hold tryouts on foreign soil as the company will hold a tryout in China on July 15th to the 18th. According the press release:

SHANGHAI, China and STAMFORD, Conn. — WWE today announced that it will return to China in search of the next generation of Superstars by holding a talent tryout in Shanghai, its largest tryout in China to date. The four-day tryout, from Monday, July 15, through Thursday, July 18, will give up to 50 male and female athletes from China the opportunity to showcase their abilities, with the goal of being selected to begin training at the state-of-the-art WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla.

“We are excited to return to Shanghai following the huge success of the first tryout in 2016,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “I have a personal message to every athlete and performer in China who has a dream of becoming a WWE Superstar: I am coming to Shanghai to help you make that happen. This is real, this is your chance. Step up and take this opportunity to change your life forever.”

Jason’s Take

This isn’t your father’s WWE. Hell, this isn’t the WWE from when I was younger. WWE continues to search and find talent to bring in to the company. You can say what you want, but the company does a great job in tapping into the foreign talent markets.
