I think Canadians are done caring about the Olympics after they lost in curling like Americans get pissed off when we lose in basketball.

I know it doesn't really count with WWE being on Syfy, but Dynamite being only 260k from Raw must be the closest anyone has gotten to it since WCW was around.

TNA wouldn't have gotten within 1.5m of Raw, even though Impact was doing 1.4m at some stages.

The closest they came was 3 million below Raw on the first Monday show. Although to be fair WWE had Bret and Shawn meeting face to face for the first time since 1997 so it would have been closer without that. And they don't have anything that big anymore besides The Rock or if Steve Austin announced he was wrestling for the first time since 2003.

Apparently Ezekiel had the highest rated segment.

Time to focus less on surprises and new hirees, moreso on their current product and long term storytelling. Now is the time to grind.

AEW only did 840,000, but the NBA games on TNT did 5 million viewers, so TBS just lost to themselves really.

As long as TNT/TBS are happy with the ratings then it's not too much of a concern. But AEW needs to grow their audience as they are often doing lower ratings than their first year with competition from NXT. There was almost double or more viewers watching wrestling on Wednesday nights when NXT was around so where the other audience gone is a big question.

But the NXT watchers were mostly hardcore WWE fans who don't watch any show Vince isn't producing. They wouldn't even follow Adam Cole over even though he was the top NXT guy during most of the Wednesday War.

And AEW always gets beaten up by NBA Playoffs, especially this year when NBA is hotter than they've been in a few years since they made some new big stars last season that draw ratings now. TNT is airing the games so they probably don't care at all right now (but may when the Finals moves to ABC next month.)
