In the lead-up to AEW's highly anticipated "All In" event, the preceding episode of "AEW Collision" experienced a notable surge in viewership, albeit with a minor dip in the coveted 18-49 demographic. As per data from Wrestlenomics, the episode, which was pre-recorded, garnered an average of 552,000 viewers, marking a commendable 15% uptick from the previous week.

However, the demographic rating slightly decreased, moving from 0.17 the prior week to 0.16 for the Saturday airing. Interestingly, the show witnessed a significant 36% increase in viewers outside the 18-49 demographic compared to the monthly median.

This surge effectively offset the minor dip in the younger demographic. Furthermore, there was a 32% rise in female viewers aged between 35 and 49 on Saturday, relative to the recent median. Detailed quarter-hour ratings for "Collision" remain undisclosed at this time.

YouTube Highlights: Main Event Dominates

On the digital front, YouTube metrics provide further insights into the episode's performance. The most-watched segment from the Saturday episode showcased the main event, a star-studded affair featuring the likes of CM Punk, Sting, Darby Allin, Hook, Swerve Strickland, "Switchblade" Jay White, Luchasaurus, and Christian Cage.

This clip has amassed approximately 445,000 views to date. In contrast, the second most-viewed clip, spotlighting the opening match between Orange Cassidy, Eddie Kingston, and Penta El Cero Miedo against Kip Sabian, The Butcher, and The Blade, has garnered just over a third of that viewership.

It's worth noting that "Collision" deviated from its usual live Saturday night broadcast. The episode was pre-taped on the preceding Wednesday. This change was necessitated by the "All In" event being hosted overseas in London, England.

Beyond the highlighted matches, the "Collision" episode also featured John Silver and Alex Reynolds from The Dark Order triumphing over Action Andretti and Darius Martin. Additionally, Willow Nightingale, Big Bill, and Keith Lee each secured singles match victories, adding to the episode's allure.
