    Is that the highest combined viewership this year?

  2. Seems like the combined viewership is more or less equal to what RAW can draw now. I won’t be surprised to see the Wednesday night shows start to outdraw RAW if things don’t improve.

    • From my Twitter page: The #AEW and #NXT combined viewership of 1.654 million is the best combo total since February 19. Very strong total considering the MLB, NBA, and NHL competition. Monday’s Raw finished with 1.715 million viewers.

        Vince can’t go away soon enough. With that said, this Wednesday was the first time in a while I’ve thought both shows were at least C quality.

        NXT was solid from start to finish and that second hour of AEW (throw in the Cody/Sammy confrontation at the end of hour 1) was the best stuff they’ve put on in ages.
