      WWE marks claimed AEW couldn't compete and Vince wasn't scared. Vince immediately moved NXT to compete lol. Yes, WWE is very aware that their product is dying WCW style. While WWE is in no danger, ever of losing money, they are very well in danger of being pulled from television for shitty ratings, namely on Fox who won't put up with their shit.

                  AEW IS the best . I like the woman title match .It is was like watching a young Gail Kim or even Rey Mysterio . The woman referee Aburiegh or ( Gearl Heffner) one of my favorite referee(zebra) . The group of men in last match almost reminded of the 4 horsemen or shield or NWO . It also reminded of how the horsemen often beat up American Dream Dusty Rhodes .The good old days of NWA or WCW Days great jobs guys .Thank for making wrestling entertaining& fun again. I am ready for next AEW weekly show

                        AEW is new and NXT is a training show of wrestlers who aren’t on the main roster so not really a big surprise

                                    lol WWE has better ratings than AEW, only thing AEW did was has slightly better numbers against a developmental brand.

                                      Taker v. Goldberg was disastrous? I think not!

                                        NXT was good, AEW was great, and Smackdown sucked.

                                          After watching AEW Dynamite and NXT. Both shows were good but NXT was the better product. NXT had more excitement matches than AEW Dynamite. NXT kept me on my seat with the matches they had. AEW Dynamite I only liked to 2 matches of the 5.

                                            Who cares, wrestling is wrestling, watch it or don't.
                                            There shouldn't be a war like this or treating it like one.

                                              Very true.. I live in Canada and TSN 2 which was supposed to show soccer changed last minute to show AEW. I'm sure with word of mouth now and more advertising on TSN that AEW will have a bigger boost in ratings for weeks to come.

                                                          I preferred AEW. NXT had the better matches, but them ads made it un-watchable. Best joke was that was limited commercial interruptions, just one in every single match!

                                                            Dave said that NXT looked like the minor leagues compared to Dynamite. And it's going to. 14k fans vs 400 fans.

                                                                                        Aew doesnt stand chance

                                                                                        Only reason the got better rating this week wasn't coz better show at all
                                                                                        As the show was mediocre at best. Best thing about it was jr on commentary

                                                                                        Reason they better them this week is hype

                                                                                        Its a new show course people where going tune in. Not coz the think it better but because its new and was hyped so much that had tune in to see if it lived up to the hype

                                                                                        And surprise it dint wcw vs tna at most

                                                                                        Rating won't count till the novelty of a new company wears out and the rating are base on week in week out performances. Not the hype of everyone wanting see it coz it new.

                                                                                        Let wait a month so see if you AEW FAN BOY STILL LIVING THE THE DREAM once it about the show u put on not the hype behind it that gets u fans

                                                                                          So yeah AEW what was that revolution you were talking about?

                                                                                          • Mike N4

                                                                                              I slightly preferred NXT, but both were great. WWE's goal first week sure wasn't to beat AEW in the ratings, I'd say they would have to be happy enough with the result, even though they'd have of course loved to win the week 1 ratings. Give it two months and see what the ratings are like then.

                                                                                                • Jharris 91

                                                                                                  The numbers were always going to be high on the first episode of AEW. For me, I gave up on WWE a while ago. If it wasnt for the nostalgia returns WWE would seriously be struggling with the ratings, and the viewing numbers from 5 years ago definitely support that.
                                                                                                  Dont get me wrong the NXT takeovers have been good but that was a seperate product essentially, and the 2nd gear AEW goes up when it comes to their PPV's is honestely unrivaled at the moment. Hopefully with AEW around, WWE can finally step up their product, its long overdue
