I wouldn't really be shocked if the actual tape is a bit longer and they just told them to go home at some point and edited it down to the half hour.

I can confirm lucha Underground did this with the Willie Mack vs. Johnny Mundo all night long match. I was at the taping.

It's hard to explain, but after Slammiversary a whole mess of the undercard were transported to Wrestle House, which is best described as Albert Camus writing a reality show, but with wrestlers and also it's a comedy. It turned out the only way they would be allowed to return was to get along with one another.

it felt like this was the direction for a while, i guess eddie was just meant to be transitional so young could beat a babyface for it. kind of weird but i mean its not like young is a bad wrestler so hopefully his matches are exciting. they have the roster to put on good matches.

Also it gives Eddie reprieve from keeping the pace of the high amount of matches he was having since winning the belt. Weekly title defenses isn't a bad concept, but I don't think we need any more of that on national TV for a while

Eric Young has an exclusive 2-year contract
Deonna Purrazzo still hasn't been offered a contract

Should probably offer even just an "X number of Appearances" contract to the woman holding the most important title in your company

The Torch is reporting that Impact took about a 70K viewership hit against NXT.

quote:

Impact Wrestling took a big hit, drawing 102,000 last night, down from the typical rating lately. The prior eight weeks averaged 155,000 viewers. Last week drew a 171,000 rating, the second biggest number since Slammiversary remade the roster. The low since them was 134,000 four weeks ago.

Ahh so the big trump fundraiser is now setting their sights on a fight they could possibly win? LMAO get hosed.

Jokes aside, that's quite a chunk that they've lost - is NXT on Tuesday next week as well? I'd be curious to see if the viewership stays that way.

Did it really? All I could find (doing a cursory search, mind you) was a news item on how TNA pulled it's usual 1.1 to ECW's 0.6 when the latter's first hour went head-to-head with Impact's second.

With what's happening over in the WWE in regards to the outside income crackdown, Impact's general attitude towards its talent side hustle activities might suddenly seem even more enticing to some. I realize it happened mostly because of Impact's financials in the last couple of years but still - roster members run twitch streams, PWTees stores or Patreons seemingly without any repercussions.

OK, changing my prediction for the Bound for Glory main event: Rich Swann somehow manages to un-retire, then beats Eric Young.

If I feel like it later I'll go through the playlist of old WWA shows and find the promo where he says that he's gonna kill all the weeble wobblers in the company

The truth is Vince fears everyone, whether they pose a threat or not.
