Will Kenny Omega appear on IMPACT Wrestling next week? That’s currently unsure but IMPACT Wrestling executive vice president Scott D’Amore is teasing an appearance.
“Don Callis alluded to this being years in the making,” D’Amore said when asked if Omega will appear on IMPACT next week. “Paradigms don’t shift in one night. See you on Tuesday.”
As for IMPACT’s impressive viewership numbers this week, D’Amore said 750,000 people overall watched IMPACT through television and digital platforms.
“It is hard to compare apples and oranges, and some digital media provide better watch-data than others, but we feel confident over 750,000 U.S.-based fans watched the episode in the first 24-hours and 1-million fans have clicked on the various highlights we’ve put out on social media,” IMPACT executive vice president Scott D’Amore said. “It was a huge night for us. For me, the best takeaway is that fans who may not have seen IMPACT Wrestling before, or perhaps haven’t checked us out for a while, they all got to see what IMPACT is all about.”
Here’s a full breakdown of the viewership directly from IMPACT:
According to Nielsen TV ratings, 244,342 tuned into the 8pm ET and 11pm ET repeat.
