  1. AEW has been declining since the first week of the new year.

    967K to 828K for AEW in 5 week’s of shows. Over 100K lost.

  2. No idea why the 1/1 show saw the bump it did, but All Petite is nosediving again.

    • That’s such a weak-sauce criticism of AEW. Other than Marko Stunt – who I’ve come to appreciate in limited doses – I really don’t notice or care about the size of AEW competitors. In fact, I look forward to seeing more from their new faces like Jungle Boy and Sammy Guevara – I couldn’t care less that they’re on the small side for wrestlers. Their ring work is great and their characterization has been very good too.

      Root for a “nosedive” all you want but a multi-year renewal by TNT says otherwise. AEW needs some work – we all know the women’s division has been rough and I personally dislike most of the company’s tag teams, but I find the show a fast-moving, entertaining two hours most weeks.

      • Haven’t noticed the size of AEW competitors? Their womans’ champion looks like a 95 lbs, 13 year old…..when she actually appears on T.V, that is. It’s not like Jungle Boy is a monster either, and I’m suppose to buy in that he can compete with Jericho?

      • He says it because Jim Cornette says it.
