Impact Wrestling to move to Thursdays on AXS TV from April 8

Impact Wrestling today announced that its flagship TV show Impact will be moving to Thursday nights beginning April 8 on AXS TV. The move is seemingly to avoid running head-to-head with NXT which is expected to start airing on Tuesdays after WrestleMania.

“Impact Wrestling has years of history airing on Thursdays, which was the night for high-energy, action-packed matches, starring some of the most high-profile stars in pro wrestling history,” said Impact Executive Vice-President Scott D’Amore. “Nothing is changing from that front when Impact jumps back to Thursday nights.”

The inaugural Impact on Thursday, April 8 will feature AEW World champion Kenny Omega teaming up with The Good Brother in a six-man main event against reigning Impact World champion Rich Swann, Eddie Edwards and Willie Mack.

Leading into Impact every Thursday night will be Before The IMPACT, an hour-long show on AXS TV, starting at 7PM ET. Hosted by Jon Burton, Gia Miller and Josh Mathews, BTI delivers late-breaking news, exclusive matches, one-on-one interviews with the Impact Wrestling stars and more.
