Report: Impact/AXS TV Deal Didn't Work Out, Anthem Inquired About Buying AXS

It doesn't look like Impact Wrestling will be on AXS any time soon, a move that looked to be a big one for them if it worked out. 

Rumors of the two side working on a deal emerged earlier this month, but never ended up materializing. When Fightful reached out to several wrestlers in the company, some even suggested AXS buying Impact. As it turns out, the opposite was pitched.

Fight Oracle (also known as Front Row Brian) posted a thread revealing news, which was later confirmed by Voices of Wrestling, who originally reported the story.

Impact just announced a new deal with Twitch, and as of now they remain on the Pursuit Network. The company has had a rough go of their television deals in recent years, going from Spike TV to Destination America to Pop TV to Pursuit, and also running on Twitch.

Fightful has reached out to both AXS TV and IMPACT about the report, but have not heard back as of yet.
