Agreed with all of those ratings except he was a little low for that cage match.

WOR - Dave notes that while AEW is on a hot streak their payroll costs have increased tremendously while their TV rights revenue is similar to the extended deal signed in May of this year. More notes on talent in the text post.
Dave says Punk (Punk is the most expensive), Danielson, Christian Cage, Paul Wight etc are on big deals. While the increased costs will have been offset to an extent by live gates and the start of Rampage (and will be further increased by the four quarterly specials next year), there are those in the industry who think they are spending themselves into trouble.

In relation to the comments by Brian Cage, Dave says everyone at the mid-level and up thinks they belong in the main event. While WWE want to get AEW guys to stop the narrative about talent all going one way, realistically most of their current and up-and-coming stars know they will not be used right there and have a lot less creative freedom. Jericho is more valuable than he has ever been but towards the end of his run there he was seen as someone who should just be putting over younger talent.

Dave did bring Lance Archer up as an example of someone who has done well in AEW but is not featured week to week as someone who could be of interest. Vince let him go years ago and he is older but WWE seem to no longer be opposed to signing and using older talent.

They will get a new TV deal in a couple of years that should jump up a fair bit, especially if Dynamite stays above 1m viewers.
