Report: AXS TV And Women Of Wrestling Part Ways

AXS TV and Women of Wrestling have parted ways. 

Shannon Walsh of Pro Sports Extra first reported that AXS TV has canceled WOW Superheroes as the television company wants to focus on its relationship with IMPACT Wrestling. Walsh reports that WOW plans on taping again in Los Angeles in the fall -- though the coronavirus pandemic could change plans -- and will announce a new distribution deal at that time.

Anthem, the parent company for IMPACT Wrestling, bought AXS TV in September 2019, which helped provide IMPACT with a new television home. AXS TV previously aired WOW and New Japan Pro-Wrestling. 

Anthem CCO Ed Nordholm said at the time that programming would not change, but AXS and NJPW parted ways in December 2019 and AXS also canceled Legacy Fighting Alliance shortly after the deal between Anthem and AXS was made. 

The final episode of WOW Superheroes aired on November 23, 2019. The show ran for two seasons on AXS TV. The show featured IMPACT stars such as Kiera Hogan, Tessa Blanchard, Havok and Nevaeh.
