Despite AEW World Champion Kenny Omega returning on the episode, this week’s Impact Wrestling drew the show’s lowest viewership of 2021 thus far.

Tuesday’s Impact averaged 116,000 viewers on AXS TV, down from the 146,000 viewers that last week’s episode averaged. The rating in the 18-49 demo stayed steady at a 0.04. Impact has drawn a 0.04 rating in 18-49 for three straight weeks.

In the 18-49 demo, Impact ranked 146th for the night on cable. Last week’s Impact, which featured the fallout from Impact's Sacrifice Impact Plus special, ranked 135th. 

Omega returned to Impact on last night’s show ahead of facing Impact World Champion Rich Swann in a title vs. title match at next month’s Rebellion pay-per-view. It was announced today that Rebellion will now take place on Sunday, April 25. The PPV was originally set for Saturday, April 24.

This was Omega’s first appearance on Impact since the fallout of January’s Hard to Kill PPV. Omega & The Good Brothers (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows) defeated Swann, Moose & Chris Sabin in the main event of Hard to Kill, with Omega pinning Swann after hitting the One Winged Angel.
