Jeff Jarrett brought up the World Cup, saying that there was talk of AAA, Pro Wrestling NOAH and Impact working together for the annual World Cup trios tournament, saying it would be in Japan in October but it’s not a done deal. It’ll be hard because the guy from Japan who was key the previous years had a falling out with AAA and was helping The Crash.
Some ratings updates from the U.K. The first week show, as reported earlier, did 151,000 viewers on Spike U.K., which is about what the show had been doing on Challenge at the end, or slightly better. It was the fifth most watched show on the station for the week. It’s double to triple what Raw does on Sky, but Spike is available in far more homes. The second show on 4/28 we didn’t get a number on as it wasn’t among the highest rated shows on the station and would have been less than 129,000. The 5/5 show did 135,000 viewers.
