    As someone who watches AEW and NXT back to back, and has watched Raw, Nxt,and smackdown consistently forever...... why are they so into live tv ratings?

          Vince isn't planning for NXT to beat AEW in the ratings. He just wants less people to watch AEW on Wednesday nights. It doesn't make sense to think that a developmental brand whose majority of talent are unknowns will try to compete with the main brand of another. It's just a plan to lower the number of people who watch AEW, which is actually kind of genius.

                Um, it's already beating it in the ratings and it just started. Also, ratings don't really matter in this business. It's all about merch and aew doesn't have shit. Stop hoping another company will best wwe because it won't.

                • That one time drake was on SNL

                  Remember, whenever ratings begin to fall, just do what Vince Russo did: PUT IT ON A POLE!

                          Pac cheated to win his second match. Cody is undefeated in singles matches with one draw and the #1 contender. Darby took Cody to a time limit draw. Jimmy Havoc beat Darby and Joey. See makes sense.

                                        Yeah, I'd really like to see you give up watching WWE to watch a whole new wrestling show you barely know anything about.

                                        Sky Blaze21 100% agreed. I think the ending to HIAC made me dislike the WWE products In general and I feel like they’re going to need to do something big to get me interested again.. Brock lesnar vs Cain and celebrity ending Monday night raw just isn’t doing it for me.

                                          AEW will eventually control Wednesday's just on the NBA starting up again on TNT. So many fresh eyes will catch the promotions for it at this time of year and will check it out. Remember hardcore wrestling fans don't make these shows a mainstream success, it's the casual viewer.

                                            Wether your a big fan or a casual viewer anyone who will watch already knows about AEW's existence

                                            @Joe Almeida you're entitled to your opinion. But if you think harsh language and former WWE stars are enough fo AEW to survive, WCW has a spot for you.

                                            TNT Reairs AEW at 10pm, directly after it 1st airs.

                                            So you don't have to pick a side, you can watch NXT at 8pm & AEW at 10pm.

                                                  People so stupid AEW is new right now humans are curious an will watch anything new untill ppl get bored of what's new then you'll see some tune in an some not with all shows but I'll be watching all shows USA App NXT.

                                                    AEW could really benefit from a well timed baseball ending... especially considering the fanbases of the teams playing

                                                      Neither program will get a bump from the teenage demographic because that demographic doesn’t want basic cable. Hell, The 20 to 35 demographic barely watch is basic cable now.
                                                      Nobody wants to sit there ads, so either prioritize your streaming network, or expect low ratings.
                                                      They could also put their programs on streaming sites, I watch WWE week programs on Hulu because I don’t get any yet and it’s much easier to watch that way.

He wants his product to be a soap opera, where AEW and NXT let the in-ring stories tell all. And lets be honest, with BtE and Road to.., and AEW Dark, they have a good marketing strategy

                                                                        • ass butter
