AEW ratings are rising

After weeks in decline that have never led to reaching the million mark with ratings, finally, All Elite Wrestling and its main weekly show AEW Dynamite, have managed to reach and exceed (albeit slightly) the million mark.

Specifically, last Wednesday's episode recorded 1.02 million views and 0.36 million in the now-famous Demo made virtually famous by Chris Jericho (nicknamed “The Demo God” at the time). An increase in which the much-discussed main event of the show certainly influenced, that is the second edition of the Blood & Guts won by the Blackpool Combat Club led by the new AEW World Champion (albeit, interim) Jon Moxley with the addition of the new Claudio Castagnoli graft (Cesaro in WWE).

AEW is on the rise

An important sign that certainly confirms the words of Kenny Omega released a few hours ago. Words in which the former IWGP and AEW world champion spoke of the change that wrestling is undergoing these days.

Certainly, an interesting vision from the Canadian, as the most avid fans of the Jacksonville federation await with anxiety and trepidation for an imminent return to the ring. Omega's last presence dates back to November 2021 or in the episode of Dynamite post Full Gear, an event in which he was defeated by Adam "Hangman" Page, the only one capable of snatching the AEW belt from his waist.

Many aspects have changed and will continue to do so, certainly, AEW and Tony Khan will now be able to celebrate the result of these ratings and try to work in the best possible way to approach new audiences and resume an increase in ratings that has been missing for too long.

Speaking of Blood & Guts, we talked about it in the latest episode of Pro Wrestling Culture (number 205) which you can easily find below. Mark Henry, on the Busted Open show, explained why Vince McMahon's company didn't sign Jade Cargill before she eventually joined Tony Khan's company.

The Hall of Famer stated that due to some "financial considerations," WWE chose not to sign Cargill. "I made that offer to them [WWE] but they didn't want to relinquish enough control. You know, there were financial considerations and all of that stuff that is personal information.

But, I also knew people over there in AEW and I was on 'Team Jade' so I was like, 'Listen, I've got somebody for y'all if y'all want her, this is what's necessary' - and boom, they picked her up," said Henry.
