Impact Wrestling ratings on AXS TV have declined, coinciding with the restart of the NFL season. Games are broadcast head-to-head with the wrestling programs, this year on Amazon Prime Video, as opposed to traditional TV in previous years.
Impact is averaging below 100,000 viewers for September and at this point in October.
New Japan Pro Wrestling seems less affected, averaging about 50,000 viewers during the same two months, which is better than the show performed in June and July, when it averaged closer to 40,000 viewers.
Impact airs at 8 pm ET on Thursdays on AXS, followed by New Japan’s one-hour block at 10 pm.
