Despite the stacked card at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam, the ratings were significantly down from last week’s episode.
As reported by Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, AEW Dynamite Grand Slam on September 21st pulled in an average of 1,039,000 viewers. The show also scored a 0.35 rating in the 18-49-year-old demographic.
That is an 11% decrease from the previous week when the show drew 1,175,000 viewers with a 0.39 rating in the key 18-49-year-old demographic. This significant decrease comes as somewhat of a surprise as the card featured multiple title matches and was heavily promoted as a big event, taking place at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City.
In the opening match of AEW Dynamite Grand Slam, Chris Jericho defeated Claudio Castagnoli to become the new ROH World Champion. The victory was a historic occasion as he is now the only person in history to hold a World Championship in WWE, AEW, WCW, and now Ring Of Honor.
AEW Dynamite Grand Slam also saw the shocking debut of Saraya, formerly known as Paige in WWE.
The main event of AEW Dynamite Grand Slam saw the finals of the Tournament of Champions to crown a new AEW World Champion after the title was vacated due to the events following All Out. Jon Moxley defeated Bryan Danielson and is once again the AEW World Champion.
