Damn good numbers for the debut show. Hopefully they can sustain this. The NXT roster is stacked with talent so should be some great tv upcoming.

Re: WWE NXT TV Ratings Thread: NO B.S. JUST THE NUMBERS.

People cant be happy for WWE or NXT for once.

1.2 million for a brand that did low numbers on WWE Network. Very good start.
I hope they do 2m within a year.

I thought it would do close to 1.5M.
I thought it would plateau at 1.2M (per below). I'm just not confident that a show that revolves around just workrate and minimalistic-to-no gimmicks can grow their audience beyond that, any more than 1995 ECW was a true threat to overtake the WWF or WCW as a mainstream promotion. Bischoff at the time called it a niche product, and the same is true for NXT.

WWE may hit on an NXT vs all-others angle, but its scope will remain largely limited to what we've seen to date - technical wrestling and undersized wrestlers. WWE will also take the show on the road, but will book smaller venues over 2020 due to uncertainty of the product's drawing power.

AEW
After an initial surge that sees viewership reach 1.7M, AEW will settle down in the 1.1 - 1.3M range. TNT will regard this as a suitable success, but will pushing hard for improvement in 2021. Khan will attempt to lure in some very high priced free agents, such as Lesnar and Goldberg. 2021 will be the make or break year for the company. WWE will make a hard play for Jon Moxley, who has an out in his contract in the spring of 2020.

If that happens, that means that they are beating RAW in the ratings. Which presents opportunities for a complete reformat of RAW, but also some real dangers for WWE.

Yea but Miz is a ratings monster with a strong lead in.

I'm not surprised they did 1.2 on the debut, I'm not sure why everyone is. If they can sustain 1 mil going forward I'll be surprised. I suspect, NXT and AEW will both hover around 600-800K for a while until one pulls away a bit

This. NXT didn't give casuals who might've been checking it out for the first time any reason to come back next week, I expect a massive dropp off over the next 3 weeks as people see that all NXT has to offer is indy wrestling and bad booking.

Great number and they introduced some great acts. They built to plenty. On USA they established a contender and a Women’s Title match, an interesting act in Cameron Grimes and did a title change and presented a villainous unit that holds all the gold.

On the Network they set up WALTER vs. KUSHIDA, Lio Rush challenging for the Cruiserweight Title and basically did the Tupelo Concession Stand Brawl. How the fuck is that indy? There were no jokes, no silly gimmicks (maybe some underdeveloped ones), a variety of matches and lots of people I want to see more of. Especially fucking WALTER, Matt Riddle and Velveteen Dream.

If the numbers are lower next week, it will be sad and proof that they didn’t really hit a nerve like I thought they would, but I expect them to be slightly up.
