In what context? You just throw numbers out there without details or evidence. Here are the top trends currently. By the way Papa Shango is #25. Where is this "popular" tournament?

Here are the top 20 for the past 24 hours:

Could've phrased it better - tournament peaked about #12

Trending doesn't matter because casual fans don't exist, or something
You speaking in some weird code??

Are people ready to admit that NXT isn't developmental anymore? WWE is creating a developmental show that will feed in to NXT. That isn't to say that AEW shouldn't (and has mostly) beat NXT weekly. It just shows that the AEW going up against "WWE developmental" show is just not a true statement. There are many other reasons as well, but having a feeder program is a pretty obvious one.

It’s still WWE’s “C” show. They could litteraly start kicking AEW’s ass next week if they wanted to by having all their top talents on the show for whatever reason.

That´s what I was just about to say.
As long as WWE and everyone else talks about being "called up" to the main roster, NXT is a developmental. And it´s still where unknown talent make their national tv debut.

Good argument. Wednesday show is wwe brand with same channel & timeslot as raw. In same time aew established itself & stars from scratch.
Going head to head hurts both shows but aew clearly putting more of a hurt on rival.
Nxt is wwes developmental brand. Aew beating them isn't saying much. Lol

Aew dominance keeps wwe Wednesday show as weak third brand.
You're starting to remind me of JR bragging about kicking NXTs butt lol Like I said it's not that big of an accomplishment but at least AEW is #2 behind WWEs main brands in engagement and ratings.

when you completely ignore what @Mr316 said about how WWE could bring major stars to NXT and beat AEW if they wanted, just because it doesn´t fit your narrative, then that´s really all there is to say.

All of NXTs major stars don't get presented as such anyway. Kross isn't doing anything remarkable but he will be written to do more on the main roster. NXTs purpose is to develop talent, not to have other competition. So AEW beating NXT is not an accomplishment worth noting. JR and others in the company bragging about this supposed victory is quite embarrassing lol

Edge appearance resulted in 0.15 rating so keep trying.

TNA had hogan, flair, Foley, young sting, young hardys but never did business aew has done. Stars don't equal success.

Stop making excuses for wwe.

NXT hasn't been really a developmental at all in years. Last time I could say that was maybe 2014-15.

Now it's treated basically like a 3rd brand, remember how they advertised it during that Survivor Series PPV? If anything, it's WWE's version of a hot indy promotion with the guys they used and how they have more focus on the in-ring aspect than Raw or Smackdown. Plus, most of the talent is plenty experienced as wrestlers on their main roster. I still enjoy it overall for what it is, but if you want their true developmental, that was NXT's Florida circuit, which will most likely be made into a new version of EVOLVE.

Wwe Wednesday show just features all the best free agents they out bid aew for.

No, company not purposely holding ppl like kross back. If creative is poor it's because creative is poor. That explains declining ratings across all brands.

Yeah, destroying the richest combat sports company which has ever existed on a weekly basis is nothing. What have you accomplished?!
