    Aew needs a deeper roster. Feel like it's the same shit each week to a lesser pop.

    Nxt is on fire and they still got gargano to return and save the day

    All Elite Wrestling is here to stay...at least until 2023.

    Not only was Dynamite extended another 3 years but AEW is adding a second televised show. No details other than it will be an hour long.


    AEW! AEW! AEW!

    I haven't watched as much Dynamtie as I'd like to have, but what I have watched hasn't been great. Not hating, just being honest. The story telling is lazy and the in ring action in general isn't terribly high. That being said Moxley's fake join of the Inner circle was wonderful.

    I'll admit they rely a lot of people watching Being The Elite for story progression but I've found the action to be better and more consistent than the big brand.
    I found the Moxley fake out to go on bit long.

    Difference in personal taste I suppose.

    I enjoyed it because of how long it went on for before he pulled the plug on it

    Listened to 83Weeks with Easy E and he was adamant that when the big wigs at Turner Broadcasting felt it was time to add another televised broadcast “Thunder” it actually took away from their creativity and focus on Nitro and that helped lead to the fall of WCW...

    His advice to AEW was to focus on their one show and don’t even bother trying to add another televised broadcast.

    I agree it may be premature to add more content but I have faith they can pull it off.

    Plus I'm waiting to see more details about what this extra program involves.

    Not sure how AEW will handle the crowd-less events but I'd love it if they went the "taped before a live studio audience" route and pretaped their shows so they could add in crowd reactions like sitcoms used to do back in the day.

    So the Exalted One was revealed to be
    Brodie Lee formerly Luke Harper
    which I like.

    Also,
    Matt Hardy
    debuted which I'm not so excited about. I've never been a huge fan and his AST performances he's really shown his mileage.

    Overall enjoyed the show, AEW is all about the fans and I was concerned about a crowdless event but them to have a handle on how to proceed.

    Per Showbuzz Daily, AEW netted 932,000 viewers for a .35 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 542,000 viewers for a .16 rating point in the same 18-49 demo.

    For AEW, this is an increase of about 166,000 viewers from the prior week, with a big increase from last week’s 0.26 demo rating. For NXT, viewership decreased by about 155,000 viewers from the prior week, and the demo rating was significantly down from last week’s 0.21.
