AEW Dynamite made its debut in October 2019 and since then has worked hard to provide an alternate product to what fans see in WWE. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still lot of room for improvement. It seems Jim Cornette criticized AEW yet again.

For many, AEW was seen as a breath of fresh air and also that old school nostalgia as the company tried to balance both the modern and old school aspects of pro wrestling. While AEW still has a long way to go as far as being a solid product is concerned, it certainly shows promise so far.

For the last three episodes of AEW Dynamite on TBS, the show has managed to break 1 million viewers for their shows. The January 19 edition of Dynamite drew 1,032,000 viewers. However, the quarterly hour breakdown revealed that the show started with 1,218,000 viewers and ended under the one million viewers mark at 947,000 for the main event.

While speaking on “The Jim Cornette Experience,” Jim Cornette blasted AEW for losing viewers on Dynamite and explained how it is bad if fans leave a show towards the end.


“They lost, from start to finish, better than 20% of their audience that they started with. Can you imagine that many people walking out of a movie theatre what it would look like? And there was no reason to stay and watch this because it genuinely became worse as it went along. They were banking I guess on people will stick around to see Sting and Darby Allin wrestle in the main event.”

There is no doubt AEW will keep on striving to better their product so that fans remain happy for as long as possible. With Tony Khan at the helm, the company is going through a lot of changes over the past few months. We will have to see just how the company will change in the coming years.
