We win even when we lose

Demos are a very real thing and have been for ages.  All networks and advertisers care about are the younger demos.  He's not making it up.

Pillman was back on Dark again this week, getting squashed by Brian Cage.

pwinsider:

The 7/15 edition of AEW did 788,000 overnight viewers, up from last week's 715,000 overnight viewers. It was the highest overnight audience for Dynamite since May.

The 7/15 edition of NXT did 631,000 overnight viewers, down from last week's 759,000 overnight viewers.


Me:

I'm not surprised in the slightest. Last week's NXT was awful. The writing on NXT is just as bad as the main roster now. The only thing saving them is that they have so many great wrestlers who couldn't have a bad match if they tried.

Recently released NXT star Tino Sabbatelli's 30-day no-compete has expired and he will get a try-out on AEW Dark tonight. They'll use him as a jobber in a tag match against Best Friends. His real name is Sabatino Piscetelli and he will wrestle under the name of Sabby going forward.

Sabby was a standout defensive back at Oregon State University his senior year and really turned heads at the Combine, so he parlayed that into being a 2nd round draft pick in 2007 of the Tampa Bay Bucs. He played 6 years in the NFL (4 with the Bucs) before retiring after the 2011 season. In 2014, he signed with WWE with no previous wrestling experience. He spent almost all 5 years of his years there training at the PC and wrestling NXT house shows, but he did form a team with Riddick Moss and they made it to NXT TV for a few months. Then he tore his pec in 2018 and was never used on TV again. He always had the look and the personality, but the wrestling part never seemed to come naturally even after 5 years.

AEW is promising that a major unsigned indy star will answer Cody's open challenge tonight for the TNT title. That match will kick off Dynamite.

It’s Eddie Kingston.

Many expect Kingston to be signed after his great match and promo last night.  #SignKingston was trending on Twiter last night.

Mike Tyson (54) is scheduled to face Roy Jones Jr (51) in LA on September 12. Whatever deal Tyson had with AEW, they haven't mentioned him for weeks now, and I guess he is done with them, at least until after this. This boxing match will be more of a work than anything seen in a wrestling ring.

I admit Kingston had a great match and promo last night, but he doesn't scream money to me.

AEW has announced that next week Cody will defend the TNT title against another unsigned indy wrestler named Warhorse. I've never heard of this guy but fans online seem to be excited. I like using this title to give indy talent exposure on a weekly basis, but obviously AEW can't sign them all.

Observer website:

AEW Dynamite averaged 845,000 viewers for last night's show on TNT, topping the 615,000 viewers that NXT averaged on the USA Network. The gap of 230,000 viewers was the highest since March 18, which was the first closed set broadcast of the pandemic era for either show.

Dynamite was up 7.2 percent in total viewers from last week. In the 18-49 demo, the show ranked fifth on cable with a 0.32 rating, up 10.3 percent from last Wednesday and matching Dynamite's best number since March. The 845,000 total viewers was the best for the show since the March 18 episode, which featured the long-promoted reveal of the Exalted One of The Dark Order and the debut of Matt Hardy.

NXT was down 2.5 percent in total viewers from last Wednesday and had its lowest audience total since May 20. The show was actually up 21.4 percent in the 18-49 demo, averaging a 0.17 rating to finish 35th in the cable rankings for that category.

The combined audience of 1.46 million viewers was up three percent from last week.

AEW dominated the individual demo categories except for people over 50, where NXT had a slim advantage of 0.33 to 0.31.

AEW doubled, and in some cases tripled, NXT in most of the other categories. Dynamite's strongest category was men 18-34, where they had an advantage of 0.44 to 0.23. In the men 12-34 category where NXT cratered last week, NXT was up slightly to a 0.04 rating as compared to AEW's 0.14.

A huge (and totally predictable) problem is that NXT when it was in WWE Network didn’t have the stink of WWE on it. It was seen as completely different. Then Vince saw that it was the one successful thing the company has going and got more involved. From the move to USA to the show now following a WWE patten to all the cross-over appearances with the main roster, it’s now just another WWE show.  And absolutely no one under 40 wants to watch a WWE show. Period.
