Delivering under pressure. With the NBA and NHL Playoffs in full swing, Impact Wrestling really does need to put together something strong to keep its audience around. With that being the case, the best solution would seem to be to stack the show with a big card, which Impact Wrestling tends to do quite well. That was the case this week as well with a pair of title matches, but how well did the show draw?

Opinion: It’s not much, but at least the audience was up a bit for the bigger show. There’s only so much you can do on the free television show and this week’s episode was about as stacked as you can realistically get with two title matches. I know it’s not the kind of increase that the company was hoping for, but I’m sure they’ll take a small increase over no increase whatsoever. Now just make sure things keep going up, which is more important than just one week.
