Re: What are your honest predictions for the upcoming changes in the pro wrestling world?
Nothing will change because the ones who have any expectations are the same ones who have been seeing and consuming wrestling product for the last 25 years.
We can only be sure of:
- WWE brand being as profitable as ever because, since several years ago, they already have a business model that goes beyond the professional wrestling (television agreements, commercial pact with other companies, Saudi money) the audiences of their TV shows will continue to "fall to new levels" yet still both shows will be one of the most tuned programs of the demography to which they are targeted.
- AEW weekly show will have a moderate success in its timslot which will cause many "AEW is dying" threads because the shows are not reaching AE ratings, but the truth is that the television network has already done its market research and they already know more or less what their fixed audience will be.
Those who think that Fox and TNT have not done a market analysis before offering a television contract and a timeslot in their weekly programming are either people who have never been part of the labor market or are too small to understand how a serious company works.
