There is a review up of last night’s IMPACT which can be heard at this link.

They put up the footage instantly. I for one skipped watching live but by 10:30 saw everything.

These might be decent numbers for Impact (no idea if it actually is or not) but I’d have thought more AEW viewers would actually tune in to see what Omega is doing on there seeing as it is majorly relevant to AEW. Is the channel not available to most people?

I can’t watch any wrestling live. WWE, NXT, AEW etc, I find watching any of it live just makes the show drag on.
