Some of you may remember way back during last summer when we reported that iMPACT Wrestling had generated some 850,000 fans on their Facebook page. Well, here we are nearly a full year later and the promotion has finally broken through 1,100,000 fans on the world’s most popular social networking website. In fact, as of the date of this entry iMPACT Wrestling has over 1,120,000 fans on Facebook.
For comparison’s sake, let’s remember that WWE’s page on Facebook has generated over 17.74 million “likes/fans” on the social networking site… so iMPACT Wrestling clearly has some catching up to do since they don’t even have 10% of the amount of likes as WWE! But hey, iMPACT Wrestling can and should be glad that it is far and away from other promotions that are commonly cited as its competitors. For example, the folks at Ring of Honor Wrestling have just over 305,000 Facebook “likes/fans” to date, Jeff Jarrett’s new Global Force Wrestling promotion has more than 10,000 fans on Facebook, and the National Wrestling Alliance has approximately 5,900 likes on the social networking site.
Incidentally, my favorite independent promotion (New England Championship Wrestling) also has more than 5,900 likes on Facebook… It’s amazing how the NWA has lost its relevance.
