Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed AXS TV and WOW-Women of Wrestling are no longer working together, as the network plans to give their full attention to Impact Wrestling.
Pro Sports Extra first reported the split between the two sides.
We reached out to AXS TV about the report and were told the network is now focusing full time on IMPACT Wrestling, while WOW is exploring other distribution opportunities. We’re also told a WOW distribution announcement is expected after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
As you may recall, Anthem Sports and Entertainment (the company who owns Impact) acquired a majority interest in AXS TV in September of last year. At the time, the network was airing NJPW content and WOW. Impact then moved networks after the acquisition and months later New Japan’s relationship with AXS TV ended.
WOW-Women of Wrestling is made by David McLane, founder of the original GLOW “Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling,” and Los Angeles Lakers Owner Jeanie Buss. The first season of the show on AXS TV premiered in 2018 and received a 24-episode pickup early on due to the response it received from wrestling fans. The second season of the show ran from September-November of 2019.
