AEW ratings are dropping

A big announcement usually means big numbers in terms of ratings, but that wasn't the case with All Elite Wrestling and its main weekly show AEW Dynamite. The event that covers the broadcasts of TBS every week recorded 930,000 views, which mark a drop of 4.81% compared to the 977,000 of last week.
The program, which in any case finished in fourth place among the 150 most followed of the evening, has logically suffered a decline also in the demo, which went from 0.62 to 0.37 last night. Specifically, this is the lowest total figure for the All Elite since last February 16th.
It does not seem to have repaid the great announcement made by the President and General Manager Tony Khan with his AEW/ROH ready to go on stage next June 26 with a collaborative show together with New Japan Pro Wrestling.
The event will be held in Chicago at the United Center where the famous ALL IN also took place, which is the event that started the ELITE group's thought of starting their own company through the financial support of the Khan family.
AEW is in trouble
Chicago is therefore a city very linked to the AEW, also for the great moment of 2021 experienced through the return to wrestling of CM Punk after seven years of inactivity from the square. Waiting to find out more news and how the card will be composed as a whole, we know for sure that, once again, Undisputed Elite and Bullet Club will be in control of the situation and proclaim themselves the great protagonists of the evening.
Will Kenny Omega be back? Will there be surprises? Will we finally see Kazuchika Okada against one of the AEW names? Meanwhile, in AEW's rival company, WWE despite defeating him during his WWE re-debut at 'Mania, Cody will once again face Seth Rollins at the next premium live event, WrestleMania Backlash.
As part of their rivalry, The American Nightmare took on Kevin Owens in the main event of Monday night's show. While Rhodes won the match as KO walked out of the contest, Seth Rollins attacked the former. The couple never worked side-by-side in WWE.
Instead, Zelina managed Andrade while he feuded with Black. Being on-screen enemies, Zelina and Black initially tried to keep their real-life relationship a secret. However, their romance came to light when they tied the knot in 2018.
