Josh Mathews Addresses Impact’s Move to Pursuit, AEW, more
During the Impact Press Pass Podcast, Josh Mathews was asked about AEW, Impact’s move to Pursuit, and more. Here are some highlights.
On Impact’s move to Pursuit: “When you look at the state of different properties on television, to have a network or channel that the parent company owns a part of is mutually beneficial to everybody to be together. We’re on the same wavelength and can grow together and build together.”
On Pursuit’s lower audience footprint: “Obviously, Pursuit has a smaller reach. But I think as wrestling fans will find the channel, it will grow.”
On the announcement of All Elite Wrestling: “It’s exciting for everybody. In the business it’s been just WWE for a while and then Impact comes along and that’s just more places for the boys to work… If we ever get to a place where everyone’s working together, that would be even better. But right now everyone is building their thing and seeing what their thing is. While I support AEW and what those guys are doing, I don’t think we really know what it is just yet. We know they’re going to have a show and I think things will get more interesting when they have their rally in Jacksonville early next week.”
