    K.O. Rocks! Prestigious

    Actually, other way around...though I guess this doesnt include Network numbers. But AEW has a bigger bump when you include Live + 7: 411MANIA | AEW Dynamite Drawing 1.2 Million Viewers in DVR Viewing; NXT Approaches 1 Million

    Which is further supported by their big drop at Thanksgiving, etc. Its also why TNT would be more than happy to renew them even if they are more prone to drops week to week; because if you'r fanbase will tune into a really great NBA matchup, the network featuring a ton of NBA games is fine with that.

    I wonder a little if USA doesnt hold RAW/NXT back a little in finding younger viewers.

    I just think it's fucking rad that there are two wrestling shows with good, fairly consistent numbers week after week also churning out QUALITY programming

    Im incredibly happy AEW exists, in part because of how its pushed NXT to up its weekly TV game.

    Just wish either show showed a sign of drawing in new fans. Long-term, I dont see how televised wrestling sustains with like, 1.5 million fans in total watching any show.

    I doubt it since in her letter she called NXT the best wrestling on tv

    Bummer about Cathy Kelly. She was great. Excited to see where she lands. It's insane to me that WWE still haven't seemed to figure out a way to really use both her and Renee to their full potential.

    She's probably going to ESPN or something

    I was really confused the other day when I randomly put on First Take and Charly Caruso was hosting

    She’s been doing stuff with ESPN for a while now. Think she made it a point to sign a deal that let her do both. Renee/Charly/Cathy are all so good

    The amount of transphobia online since Wednesday has been fucking exhausting. If I hear one more goddamn person say "but phobia means that you're scared of something", I'll fucking lose it.
