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

Yes ratings matter, but regardless of what happens this week NXT was the better product. It just was. They will fine in the long run. All this being said it wouldn't shock me or anyone else AEW gets a higher rating than NXT this week.

AEW is a gimmick. Nothing unique, everything from their debut they stole from WWE/WCW. NXT is unique. AND their fan base and crowd is top notch. Nobody comes close. They are well educated in wrestling, they get it. And it's diverse as hell. Young, old, male female. AEW is a sausage fest filled crowd who got free tickets and discount beer. Just like Nitro used to do. They don't even know why they are there.

That opening match Cody vs panda head got a zero BEYOND Cody's initial entrance. And Cody is not only part owner and creator he's the face of the company. And panda head, he's supposed to be the best in world. (Tony's keeps telling everyone they have the best in world wrestlers) LOL Now compare that with Cole vs Riddle. They killed it out there. Just flat out wrestled the competition in the mirror time slot. Neither one claiming to be the best in world. Just killed it.

NXT crowds are super loyal and are more interested in the wrestling rather than being more interested in saying you went to an event.

P.S. - Please , please , please, I hope the green shirt guy officially switches allegiance. He's yours now.

Lmao lots of silliness here. NXT had to put on a usual main event on the first match ,..they couldnt hold their jizz til the end and still AEW squashed them in ratings. Hows that feel when the WWE machine who's been around for 10 plus years with no competition loses to a company with one official day live on the same day. Lets be honest NXT belongs on the network with their crowds of 50.

If it's true and NXT did a .5 (rating) , that means they went up from last week (.3) and topped their debut two weeks ago.(.4)

This is like when a summer blockbuster makes a billion dollars and then the Academy Award goes to the better well deserved film.

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

This is good for AEW but probably doesn't matter to the WWE because even if USA decides to take NXT off they can always put it back on the Network (although I doubt they will anytime soon)

The real focus on the WWE is going to be Smackdown. It's the main show. If AEW starts drawing 5 point ratings and Smackdown doesn't do anything on Fox then they'll start to panic.

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

Huh, who would've thought that no characters and no promos might turn away some of those new viewers that tuned in? Nostradamus couldn't have predicted that viewers wouldn't get immediately attached to bland guys that they know nothing about.

I expect it'll be down to 870K by next week.
Damn, I was pretty close, only 21K off. It's good that they finally put some fucking promos on the show, gotta give the people who are still watching a way to connect to these jabronis. I think next week's drop won't be that bad. I'll say 820K.

Their demo has gone from .43 to .32 to .32 again. The total viewer is dropping weekly. I wonder where their basement is, where the diehards will tune in no matter what.

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

This is not the week to be judging anything by ratings. The curiosity factor for AEW is off the charts and will be for what I’d say is maybe the next month. I’m interested in seeing how AEW handles putting out an exciting 2 hour live show every week. I assume the energy in January will not be at the current levels. Same goes for NXT. They aren’t going to have a show of that high a caliber every week.

Go on Hunter. Keep the title on Shayna. Keep going to the well with Undisputed. Keep repeating the same shit over and over. Keep doing generic stories and masturbatory finisher kickout fests. Let's see how well it works now that real competition is here.

How fast have the ratings declined week on week?

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

I'll just copy what I said in the other ratings thread:

Well, that is impressive. Not so much that they beat NXT, but that they did so that by that wide of a margin. Whether that's hype for AEW, curiosity for something new, disinterest in NXT, or a combination of all of it, I don't know.

But still, a huge win for AEW, NXT or no NXT. Now obviously the question is what happens next. Is 1.4 their floor or their ceiling. That is what I'm interested in seeing what happens next.

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

That statistics really show that both shows have completely different audiences. These aren't bad ratings for either show. I preferred NXT personally but I imagine a lot wanted to watch AEW live. It was nice to see WWE go out and congratulate AEW as well for their premiere, props to them for that.

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

NXT even though its pitched to a younger audience has the problem that the main shows for WWE spent the last 3 years running the under-40 audience away with pitchforks and torches. WWE as a brand lost close to half of their under-40s in the past 3 years. So there's such a small well of young people already watching RAW and Smackdown to translate that to watching NXT. So I'm sure a lot of the younger people watching WWE watched NXT and they had big conversion numbers or crossover numbers or whatever you want to talk about it, but a large percentage of a small number is going to be just that, a small number. NXT is going to have to find a way to get the under-40s and they are in direct competition against a similar brand of wrestling that already more than doubled them in the 18-49 age demo. Its going to be tough for NXT to get to a million again and build from it. WWE just doesn't know how to get the younger people into the shows anymore.

Just because Alexa is in WWE, doesn't mean WWE is the best promotion.

These ratings get worse. Is just my imagination or NXT became so stale nowadays?

Thing is for the younger viewers NXT isnt doing so hot. AEW looks modern, their Road Tos are amazing..BTE is catering to fans on a personal level..AEW seems authentic and sadly NXT is trying but they fuck the intelligence from younger fans each time. The solution is not to bring in main roster guys vs AEW...they have a bigger problem.
