AEW Collision Scores Highest Rating Since Debut

CM Punk on AEW Collision

There’s an upward trend happening with AEW Collision and it’s showing up in the ratings

CM Punk and his crew are gathering more “Colliders” for Saturday nights as the latest vierwship numbers for this past weekend are nothing but good news for a show that experienced immediate decline after it’s premiere episode on June 17.

Wrestlenomics had the statistics for this past Saturday and Collision was watched by 739,000 total viewers on average, up 20% from the week previous and the highest number the program has seen since that aforementioned June 17 episode.

There is equally good news on the key demographic side of the coin as Collision was watched by 354,000 aged 18 to 49, totaling for a 0.27 P18-49 rating. That’s up a whopping 49% from last week and the highest the number has been since June 17 as well.

The Concern For AEW Collision Can Be Tempered

Critically, there’s been plenty of high praise for the product AEW Collision has been churning out, even from some unexpected advocates. Former WCW President Eric Bischoff, who hasn’t been afraid to express his criticism of AEW, has enjoyed what Collision has been doing on a weekly basis. Additionally, Bischoff was also a voice of reason for Collision when the viewership numbers appeared to be dropping drastically, noting that the Fourth Of July holiday played a factor in the early stages of the show garnering traction.

CM Punk, along with several other stars, have cultivated their own identity in Collision that makes the product different from AEW Dynamite. It was reported last month that Punk led a locker room meeting in an effort to make the show stand out on its own.
