Re: AEW Ratings, Buy-Rates and Viewership Discussion

Great thread for preservation of sanity

For clarification - this is the place for ticket buy-rate as well, right?

On topic - everything’s fine / all is great / ratings are gonna be amazing, ppv numbers will climb and tickets will sell-out

Re: AEW marketing problems.

With the dire news of AEW ratings not picking up and tickets declines,one must think is AEW not doing well already.

Why that might be lack of media exposure & not good firm marketing.

AEW is going too have do a lot of thing just too get over with people.

But with WWE not that popular nowadays is wrestling in a downward spiral.

Unlike the days of WWE Raw vs WCW Nitro and you had ECW as a alternative.

WNW could be forgettable and not worth NXT will win but won’t get big ratings.
Ratings not picking up, after having absolutely zero television shows yet, these are the brilliant minds we're supposed to be discussing wrestling with.

That's an odd review of the second best match on the card.
Smh. You deserve what you get I guess. Three guys that look like they sat alone at lunch in school giving each other fake papercuts. So edgy.
Match was great and arguable the best on the card. Also this criticism is fucking hilarious coming from a jay white mark who literally comes across as an edge lord teenager from hot topic

Re: AEW PPV sales already declining.

PPV buys aren't even remotely an indicator of interest. They're just using an outdated model in 2019. No one wants to spend $50 on PPV when WWE offers much more for a fifth of the price.

Most other companies like Impact, Ring of Honor, NJPW and even CZW already have streaming services of their own.

Re: AEW PPV sales already declining.

I mean thats kinda expected, isnt it? They cant keep riding the momentum through the whole year.

Developing characters, finding their own presence and making interesting storylines is the way to go. I think they'll be fine.

Re: AEW PPV sales already declining.

Moxley wasn't there, him having to pull out of their biggest match I'm sure played a huge role, despite people claiming these shows will sell no matter who's on them. I give them a pass for this.

Also lol at people spinning this saying PPV is dead, no. UFC and Boxing are eating just fine off PPVS. AEW is still a new company growing their brand so this isn't really that big of a deal.Once they get more exposure the numbers will go back up. For them to even be the 100k range for a company that just started this year is pretty impressive.

Re: AEW PPV sales already declining.

Mox was out, and he was the main event basically. So it's not surprising.

Hey! Papercut hurts like a motherfucker.

Match was great and arguable the best on the card. Also this criticism is fucking hilarious coming from a jay white mark who literally comes across as an edge lord teenager from hot topic
:lmao Gotta agree. These Jay White marks are spreading all of a sudden.

Are Boxing and UFC also available on streaming services like B/R Live and Fite TV?

Re: AEW marketing problems.

Jesus another one of these stupid AEW is failing threads. You guys need to stop with this hyperbole. You don't like AEW fine, move on elsewhere. Constructive criticism is one thing but many of you guys are just trolling hard.

Fuck, I guess I’ll just give up on AEW now

Tony probably called TNT and told them to cancel his show too

Re: AEW PPV sales already declining.

With only 4 shows in it is difficult to reach any conclusion regarding booking, creative choices, etc, imagine trying to analyze business metrics, it's worthless.

Re: AEW PPV sales already declining.

To be fair on AEWs part, it is to be expected for them to lose at least a little momentum when their TV deal hasn't started yet.

Lets see how things go once they get going on TNT. Having 30 minute videos on youtube isn't the same.

It's too early for anyone to be freaking out about any sort of a decline.

Having said that, not having Moxley isn't as big of a deal as was made out to be. The name Chris Jericho is much more known to hardcore and casuals and he was on the card. They were crowning their first World Champion on the show and PAC replacing Moxley was still an "attention getter" for us hardcore fans.

I see a lot of two extremes: Reporting every little negative thing on AEW OR getting overly defensive when someone does report something negative on AEW. October is nearly here. Everyone chill.

Lost 10,000 viewers between DON and All Out. These guys are screwed when they go to weekly TV.

I know you made this thread to troll. But yes buys are down because Double or Nothing was first show excitement. All Out buys would have been bigger. But you can't take away the number one match people want to see in Moxley/Omega and expect it to do better then Double or Nothing. So the reason buys were down was no Moxley/Omega.


Also you are a idiot they aren't screwed. The whole point of weekly tv is to add more AEW fans which will result in more buys lol. I'm sorry but you just need to be banned for trolling at this point. Please at least make sense when you are trying to troll. It's still AMAZING that AEW is able to do these buys(that WCW wasnt even doing in 2001)without weekly tv. You dumbass lol.

Moxley/Omega was hyped and talked about match for months. Fans where way more excited for Moxley/Omega then Jericho/Page. In fact people questioned if they were wasting Moxley/Omega because it wasn't main event title match. There's no doubt that buys were way down because the match got cancelled. It's not even just Moxley it's combo of a top WWE guy in his prime facing top New Japan guy in his prime. It was a dream match a lot of fans never thought they would see. So there's no doubt about it. That had big impact on buys.

How are we pinning everything on Moxley? He wasn't even scheduled for DoN?

Re: AEW marketing problems.

Nope every thing is as expected nothing dire. They didn't even start tv yet lol. Right now they should be lucky to be selling 1,000 tickets to shows and doing 20-30 thousand buys on ppvs. Instead there selling at least 5,000 tickets to every show and doing 100,000 plus buys on ppvs. That is flat out AMAZING for a company to builds shows on wrestlers only on social media lol.

Lol I know the damn company not even on weekly tv yet and still doing amazing things. They weren't gonna keep the pace and still grow past what they were doing without tv. So this slow down is expected with so many tickets for shows on sale and it's still doing really well. It's sad, stupid and hilarious trolls trying to push this agenda right now. At least for tv and months of ratings for these trolls to make these threads. Right now It's basically like making fun of a woman for having small breast when she has Ds instead of double Ds. That's how petty and pointless these threads are. This company is doing amazing when you consider they build their shows with 10 minutes of YouTube promo videos per week lol
