How a company hasn’t picked up icw is beyond me. Needs to be on tv
They have no need to be on TV at all. Their brand awareness is solid for the UK market, so they do well on their ticket sales and on demand/iPPV. They’d be potentially hurting their on demand service if they started showing stuff on some crappy little cable channel that wouldn’t be able to pay them anything anyway. And having a TV show could hurt their relationship with WWE.
Plus they had a TV show years ago and got booted off the station due to a scheduling screw-up, so that banned status will have put other channels off. But they weren’t being paid anything for the show anyway. And they’re probably still waiting for WWE to put them on the WWE network, so they’re unlikely to take a crappy cable channel offer now.
It’s 2019. Small time wrestling promotions aren’t making money from television, nor do they rely on it to advertise their brand. YouTube, social media, word of mouth do far more for them than being on Sky channel seven thousand at 2am would.

I hope so too, but have no idea what buyrate would be considered a success, 5k, 10k more or less?
By way of comparison Degale Vs Eubank Jr did an estimated 80,000 buys in January but wrestling is more of a niche market than boxing. I think it is also far more likely to be viewed by illegal streams.
