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)

Then don't have the top people on the roster and the owner show passive aggressive behavior at WWE for several months. We see what they are doing, they are very transparent.

If you honestly don't think that show was a mini takeover I don't know what to tell you. Please find any other non takeover nxt show that had 3 titles on the line in one night. It was a mini takeover. Saying otherwise is sheer delusion

I dunno what's they have expected

NXT is cool and all but it's the 3rd fiddle and it was against a fresh new show with a lot of hype

So it was expected

Dude, relax. You’re panicking so hard. Just watch NXT and forget about AEW if you hate the product. Just enjoy your favorite show and forget the ratings. Don’t force yourself to worry about things you can’t control.

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

I wouldn't be too worried if i were nxt. Numbers are at the high end of what i thought would happen still. Aew will not be the new hip thing forever ( like nxt) . Aew numbers are higher than i expected as well. Congrats

Not really, just one guy who thinks he's the voice of every wrestling fans.

If he don't like something then the majority can't like it.
Right. I like AEW more since they debuted and my wife which begrudgingly watches WWE with me was actually into watching AEW.

Horrible numbers and down in every demo except 50+
AEW lost 400,000 viewers and still doubled them in every under 50 demo.
Both of these shows will go sub-1 million and never sniff it again until baseball playoffs are done, best case scenario.



They are doing .15 in 18-34 and the average age of an NXT viewer is already 55!

So AEW lost more viewers in one week on TNT, than NXT has in 4 weeks since their debut on USA.

Sadly, I'm guessing it'll be up in a month or so. Just like they don't upload Raw or Smackdown until way later. That's too bad because NXT was one of the main reasons I subscribed to the Network.

Hopefully, I am wrong.
