Ja’Von’s Take: This week’s episode of IMPACT was heavy on the tag team matches. While many are not happy with the heavy hand of tag team matches on IMPACT, but when looking at it from a wrestling promotion standpoint, this is the best way to feature lots of talent at once on a two hour show. IMPACT tends to focus more on wrestling and less on promos, which is great. Back to this week’s show, I understand why the viewership took a huge dive because the show itself felt weak. The only match that saved the show was the main event, but it’s still shocking to see viewership hit record lows. Stay tuned to the IMPACT YouTube Report.
