Lol don't kid yourself to not want to believe Impact is way bigger than ROH when Impact gets better viewership, better attendance, Impact plus has more subscribers than Honorclub, And Impact is actually profitable while ROH isn't.Ok, if that's the case... why did these NPW shows in the US not sell so well?
NJPW in California - G1 Special... 2,300
G1 Climax 29 - Dallas 4,800
New Beginnings Tour -
Durham - 637
Atlanta - 825
Or the other people say that the "bullet Club / Elite" sold the venue.... which is true too. NJPW helped, Bullet Club/Elite helped. But so did ROH itself. The promotion has been growing for 18 years, and this was a big moment for the company.
I'm not going to bicker back and forth on who is better... but don't kid yourself that Impact is "way ahead" of ROH.
Now to your attendance crap NJPW were barely drawing 200-400 people in the U.S on average before the pandemic

The latest edition of the The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that NJPW has had some disappointing attendance numbers with their recent shows, particularly the New Beginning Tour in the US. The tour was reportedly a ‘huge disappointment’ in regards to crowd size. The attendances that were announced were the building totals. In Japan, they usually announce the amount of people who paid. Paid numbers were even lower than announced.
Nashville was said to be closer to 400, which was one of the lowest paid crowds in recent years for New Japan. It was reportedly the most unsuccessful tour they’ve run. The show in Atlanta, which was the last one, on February 1 had 855 fans.

ROH were barely drawing 200 people at their shows
AEW and WWE are now the focus of the pro wrestling world and that could do some real damage to every other promotion that isn't one of the big two. This
Impact were regularly drawing 1,000-2,000 people to their shows which ROH hasn't come close to doing. Impact in Mexico drew 2,000-2,200 people earlier this year
Sold 3k tickets to BFG last year
ROH hasn't done anywhere close to these numbers so Impact are infinitely bigger than ROH in every cotagory there is. Impact also outdrew NJPW in ATL 3 months ago. NJPW only drew 855 people while Impact drew 1,500 people.
