Today, IMPACT Wrestling announced that they will move to Tuesday nights following their premiere on AXS TV on Oct. 29.
AXS TV, the exclusive U.S. television broadcast home for IMPACT Wrestling, one of the world’s pre-eminent professional wrestling organizations, today announced IMPACT Wrestling will launch on the network on Tuesday, Oct.1 at 8pE/5pP.
Leading up to the debut of its flagship weekly show IMPACT! on October 29, AXS TV will showcase IMPACT Wrestling’s critically acclaimed pay-per-view events of 2019, broadcasting each of Homecoming (October 1),

Rebellion (October 8) andSlammiversary XVII (October 15) in their entirety and hosted by Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore and the voice of IMPACT Wrestling Josh Mathews.
Finally, on October 22, THIS IS IMPACT! will serve as a launchpad for the promotion’s AXS TV debut, featuring a preview of the weekly series, profiles on IMPACT Wrestling’s biggest stars and exclusive non-televised matches from BOUND FOR GLORY, IMPACT Wrestling’s biggest pay-per-view event of the year to be held on Sunday, October 20 in Chicago.
This move will effectively put IMPACT in the time slot SmackDown is leaving next month when it debuts on Fox on Friday nights.
This is a great time for wrestling fans. This will offer them another option in a month where AEW will bring pro wrestling back to TNT for the first time in nearly 20 years. Hopefully, this introduces the Knockouts division to a new generation of fans.
This also sets AXS TV up as a hub for wrestling because the channel already airs WOW-Women of Wrestling and New Japan on Saturday nights.
