Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite television show produced 663,000 viewers for Wednesday’s episode on TNT, according to Showbuzzdaily.com. The viewership count was down from the 893,000 viewers who watched last week’s episode.
Powell’s POV: NXT won the weekly battle over AEW by 147,000 viewers. AEW finished 15th in the 18-49 demographic, while NXT finished 19th in the same category.
Yes, it was Thanksgiving eve but NXT maintained a large chunk of their viewers while AEW lost a big chunk of their viewers. 6 weeks and counting that AEW is under 1 million viewers. Not good.
Not good. You talking about the ratings? Or the show?
All Petite Flipwrestling is on life support after only 2 months. The 3’9″ “wrestler,” the completely chaotic tag team “wrestling” matches with no discernible rules, and the paper thin roster are never going to be good, much less competitive.
APW already needs a massive overhaul. They would have been much better off filling out their mid/under card with guys who look like athletes and can be trained to work instead of trained to do meaningless moves with no selling. They should have thrown huge money at guys like Tom Lawlor and Jacob Fatu instead of guys like Pockets and Chuck Taylor.
