Kanyon was incredibly talented, and a great worker. I also loved his angle where he imitated DDP.

Fantastic talent and one of the best elbow drops in the business.

Io Sharai is engaged to EVIL.
Kairi Sane is married to someone outside of wrestling.

Ah, my mistake.

Either way, I expect to see Kairi in Stardom and competing at Wrestle Kingdom next year.

It sounds like Kairi Sane leaving isn't set in stone yet and WWE is offering her more money than she could get in another promotion to stay.

I think this is the third week in a row that NXT has beaten AEW


https://twitter.com/user/status/1281316559885971458


Smackdown 1.77

Raw had 1.68 million viewers.
NXT 759,000
AEW 715,000
Impact 7 dudes named Floyd

The AEW guys keep talking about winning the 18-49, so really it's kind of a tie.

NXT wins overall, AEW the key demographic.

One thing that I think does get overlooked though is that NXT still does live on the network too. If you were a NXT/WWE fan that had the network to watch, you might not have changed viewing habits to watch it on USA now.

So I don't think it tells a full story anyways.

Also, with it being on the WWE Network, people may choose to watch AEW live, then watch NXT on the network online afterwards rather than PVRing AEW and fast forwarding through commercials.

I really wish WWE would work out a deal with Sportsnet to show NXT live. It's not like Canadians are able to watch it legally on the USA Network. I try my best to scroll quickly past WWE posts Wednesday nights but when you have a video of the winner of last night's main event celebrating on Facebook it's pretty tough to not get things spoiled.

Main reason why I dropped the Network. Can't watch NXT live on Wednesday nights? #### that. Too much media and discussion in 24 hours to be able to ignore when you're a fan. Happy to support AEW on Wednesday nights, especially with a primetime slot on TSN.

Ya that change has been super annoying, essentially sportsnet paid them to stop showing it live on the network so they could show a condensed version on fridays before smackdown

Raws 2nd lowest rating ever I think I saw

They need crowds back in the worst way, for whatever reason AEW and even NXT just feel so much more normal than WWE in the presentation

Just to be clear, pretty much all of the numbers are dismal, They had this great opportunity to capture audience when all of the sports went on Hiatus, but really bad television on all accounts and a really poor product on all accounts has effectively hurt the business, and could kill it when other sports come back.
