Some of you may remember last spring when we reported that IMPACT Wrestling had generated some 1,100,000 fans on their Facebook page. Well, here we are some nine months later and the promotion has just exceeded 1,200,000 fans on the world’s most popular social networking website. In fact, as of the date of this entry IMPACT Wrestling has over 1,237,000 Facebook fans.
For comparison’s sake, let’s remember that WWE’s page on Facebook has generated over 24.17 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 about 413,000 Facebook fans to date, Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling promotion has more than 22,000 fans on Facebook, and the National Wrestling Alliance has approximately 8,700 likes on the social networking site.
Incidentally, my favorite independent promotion (New England Championship Wrestling) also has more than 6,100 likes on Facebook… And I never cease to be amazed at how the NWA has lost its relevance. Another one of the independent wrestling groups that I keep my eye on is Pro Wrestling Syndicate and they have just under 20,000 fans as of this entry.
