This past Friday on IMPACT Wrestling, there was a barnburner main event match between Michael Elgin and Rich Swann. However, if you were watching via The Pursuit Channel, then you did not see this bout at all:
IMPACT Wrestling never returned from their commercial break. the Pursuit Channel instead aired 24 minutes of commercials. Now, a report is coming out from PWInsider that this latest blunder is only an addition to a very frustrating relationship for IMPACT.
Reportedly, The Pursuit Channel has been very slow responding to IMPACT Wrestling’s requests and also equally as slow when it comes to technical issues. Pursuit was very slow when it came to initially promoting that IMPACT Wrestling would be on the network Also, when they finally added the show to their guide lineup, they listed it as four separate 30-minute episodes causing issues for those that would DVR the show.
All of this also comes on top of the limited distribution that the Pursuit Channel actually has which forced IMPACT to also air the show via Twitch to make sure that the majority of their fans could still watch the show. Internally, the hope is that IMPACT Wrestling will find a much better channel in the Fall.
