Impact Wrestling Moving Back To Thursdays On April 8
There will now be wrestling on each weeknight
With NXT in all certainty moving to Tuesdays after WrestleMania 37, Impact Wrestling is moving out of its Tuesday night time slot on AXS TV, and returning to a night quite fitting for the company.
Impact tweeted that the weekly show will be moving to Thursdays, beginning April 8.
The first episode of Impact in its new/old time slot will feature a six-man tag, pitting Impact World champion Rich Swann, Eddie Edwards, and Willie Mack against The Good Brothers and (in his Impact match debut) AEW World champion Kenny Omega.
With the move, wrestling broadcasts now encompass prime time on all five weeknights, with WWE Raw on USA Monday nights, NXT on USA Tuesday, AEW Dynamite on TNT Wednesday, Impact on AXS TV Thursdays, and SmackDown on the FOX network on Fridays.
From 2006 through 2014, Impact maintained regular Thursday night presence (save for several months in 2010, when the show made an ill-fated move to Mondays) on the channel then known as Spike. The program also aired Thursday nights on Pop, from 2016 through 2019.
