Impact Wrestling has confirmed their weekly show will be moving to AXS TV.
As we previously reported, Anthem Sports and Entertainment — the parent company of Impact — recently purchased a majority stake in AXS TV.
According to today’s press release … Impact’s weekly show will move to AXS TV in October following the company’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view.
“IMPACT Wrestling is a perfect fit for AXS TV’s slate of live sporting events and combat sports content,” Ed Nordholm stated in the press release.
“The newest addition to our growing portfolio of media assets, AXS TV’s audience perfectly aligns with our passionate IMPACT Wrestling fan base, and this move increases the reach for our weekly program with distribution in over 50 million homes,” he added. “We could not ask for a better home and are excited by the opportunities to work with Mark Cuban and Anschutz Entertainment Group, our partners in AXS TV, to bolster IMPACT Wrestling’s presence in the market, as we continue to deliver action-packed and innovative weekly programming featuring some of the most athletic and gifted stars in the professional wrestling industry.”
In the wake of Anthem’s merger, at least 40 people have been laid off at AXS TV.
