Except they are/were there and haven't moved the needle. No casual is watching Impact. Pop TV is the kind of channel you'd either leave on as background noise or you'd find because you're looking for a specific show. It is highly doubtful the Impact viewers are casual and the mostly steady show ratings reflect that.
Kenny Omega has proven to be a very good draw for ROH so it stands to reason that he can do the same for Impact. Kenny around would probably eliminate the need to PAY people to attend their shows. They need star power and the biggest star not signed to WWE these days is Kenny Omega.
