Re: WWE NXT TV Ratings Thread: NO B.S.'ing THE NUMBERS.
It's real simple. Both shows have a different goal. AEW in their mind is trying to beat and take down WWE. Why they think by beating out NXT, WWE's minor league division will accomplish taking out the main company is beyond me.
AEW debut was no different then any of the PPV's they put on. NXT this week was a normal show with the extended 2 hours. Wow, big deal they had a championship match. People claiming they put on a Takeover show is off based. Apparently these people never seen a NXT PPV. NXT is a tiny organization, barely a 1,500 attendance arena. It's close, it's a personal setting. Which allows the crowd to feel like they are part of the action, which in turn they become more educated in wrestling. Every audience member can see, hear, and sense everything these wrestlers are doing .. nothing is lost. It's unique. AEW is not unique. It's nothing we hadn't seen before from WWE, WCW, TNA, etc... Both shows did well in the ratings/numbers according to their "lane" and their audience.
P.S. - What's with the OMG on Jack Swagger showing up in AEW? Isn't he the same guy that nobody liked while he was in WWE. There's thread & forums destroying the guy. Even laughing when the idea of TNA signing him long time ago. Yet now for whatever reason he's in AEW, it's awesome. Come on, stop it. You either like him or you don't. (fyi, I have no problem with the guy, I like him)
