WWE’s Record Low Ratings Could Disrupt AEW’s Plans For A Television Show

All Elite Wrestling has a lot of hype behind them, but a television deal hasn’t been announced yet. On the flip side, WWE has two huge television deals set to start in October and their ratings are plummeting.

Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Live how WWE’s declining ratings with record-breaking low numbers could go on to actually hinder AEW from securing the kind of deal they could have otherwise received.

“I would want it signed this week for sure. I would really now wanted it signed last week because the TV industry — I mean believe me — the TV industry is looking at WWE number and it’s like record low, record low Monday, record low Tuesday and the perception of wrestling right now is not a positive one.”

Meltzer went on to say that “we’re not even close to the bottom” when it comes to WWE’s ratings. WWE is the biggest pro wrestling company on the planet so their ratings matter and are seen as a measuring stick for any other competition.

AEW might be able to offer a brand new show with a unique roster, but television executives don’t see it that way. When WWE can’t even bring in the numbers that a Network’s regularly scheduled programs do it might not be too tempting to ink a deal with a pro wrestling company.

All Elite Wrestling’s television plans might have already changed a bit because the Tuesday Night Dynamite name could be of use once again.

Therefore, if AEW is going to sign a television deal they might want to do it very soon before who ever they’re talking to gets cold feet.
