The show airs on TBS every Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. (EST). The fact that the show airs after AEW Dynamite is one of its biggest perks. Without a doubt, AEW significantly boosts the power-slap league. Nevertheless, episode after episode, the show’s audience grows. With only 2,95,000 viewers, the show’s premiere was a complete failure. By the second week, there had been a dramatic increase in viewers. Nevertheless, how the public will react to the Power Slap League PPV is still uncertain.
