  1. WWE got a million more viewers for smackdown than aew received for washed up nba legend shaq’s “wrestling show”. I like how shaq acted like he was sleeping after he took his “bump” through the fake table.

    • Wwe has never been as week as they are right now, and yet aew has yet to really put a major dent in Vince’s company.

      • …Cont
        People complain about wwe mishandling of their wrestlers, which is completely valid, but aew hasn’t been much better outside of Jon Moxley and a few others.

        • The funny thing is that WWE is as strong as ever from a financial stanpoint. wwe is making more money than ever in its entire history.

          The wrestling media only focuses on “ratings” and “demos” and on aew signing every ex wwe has been on the planet.

      • The wrestling media has an anti wwe bias especially the wrestling observer courtesy of dave meltzer and bryan alvarez.
