AEW is riding high after shocking the wrestling world with tremendous ticket sales for their upcoming Wembley Stadium supershow All In.

Ticket sales for the event went on pre-sale on May 2nd, which saw an impressive 50,000 tickets sold. The numbers continued to rise following the general release, with Tony Khan stating 60,000 tickets were sold. Following the news, Dave Meltzer called the sales a “gigantic” and “historical” draw.

Following the sale success the inaugural AEW World Champion, Chris Jericho took to social media to celebrate the occasion. Upon seeing the message, one “fan” responded to Jericho stating that the huge ticket sales won’t fix the promotion’s dropping US viewing figures.

“doesn’t fix AEW’s core issue of flatlining US viewing figures. In most metrics, not just flatline, decline.”

For context TV viewership ratings have played a major part in the promotion’s success over the past few years with hits on certain key demos. However, AEW Dynamite saw another drop in ratings recently. The most recent episode of Dynamite pulled in 776,000 viewers, the lowest viewership since June 2022.

In support of AEW another Twitter user responded to the reply claiming that TV ratings are an outdated concept that seemed to get the interest of the Game.

Dude. If they’re doing so poorly, why did Warner just give them another show?

Tv ratings are an outdated way to view popularity, in todays world of cord cutting. WWE has less than half of what they got 10 years ago, but are more profitable than ever.
