WWE Raw’s 18-49 audience was 556,000, the lowest since July 5th.

But the dirty little secret about AEW catching up with WWE early on is that it doesn’t match the growing overall wrestling viewership. This is far from the same dynamic as Monday Night Wars, where both WWE and WCW have grown so much that tens of millions of people watch Raw and Nitro each week during the industry-wide boom. Thing. But if WWE continues to lose to AEW with 18-49 viewers at this point in 2021, it will allow industry-leading WWE viewers (and all wrestling viewers) to beat WWE. It only happens when you reduce it to a level.
Moreover, if the industry is really exploding, the AEW rampaging freefall is not a problem.
Raw responded to last week’s defeat with a hot and entertaining show where Big E put money in a bank briefcase to win the first WWE Championship. In weekly competition with Monday Night Football, AEW Dynamite’s 18-49 viewership is not out of the question to beat WWE Raw in the future. It would be interesting to see how WWE Raw reacts when this becomes a trend.
AEW continues to struggle to promote black talent at the top level-promoting #BlackWrestlingDraws hashtags during the recent AEW dark match between Big Wall and Diamante-the WWE Championship is just one Another thing in history for the first time from a black performer.
In 2021, WWE will join Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks in addition to the first ever WWE Championship match between two black men when Bobby Lashley crushed Kofi Kingston at WWE Money in the Bank. Also featured the first WrestleMania main event among black women in. AEW continues to double its increasingly monolithic rosters and former indie stars, many of whom are well-known in WWE. As a counter, WWE can continue to differentiate itself from rising promotions with a more diverse list of top stars that can appeal to a variety of markets outside the Internet wrestling community.
WWE Raw featured Alexa Bliss’s ongoing push to showcase the new “Charlie” doll, which sells for $ 39.99 on WWEShop.com. This character isn’t popular in the older male demographics, where the professional wrestling industry is already in trouble, but it allows WWE to market to potential new fans of women and children. Last month, Andrew Zarian (h / t Sportskeeda) reported that the fate of the Alexa Bliss character was determined by the sale of her Lilly Doll over the SummerSlam weekend. Bliss has claimed that the dolls have been sold out since then, and WWE’s deployment of a second line of dolls suggests that they were actually successful.
Early on Monday, Big E tweeted that he would cash his money in a bank briefcase. Big E has become a trending topic for shows that have already promoted Randy Orton vs. Bobby Lashley on the WWE Championship. With the 18-49 demo reviving NFL Monday Night Football and AEW strangling WWE, Raw hits a full hot shot in the final segment with two WWE Championship matches and Money in the Bank cash-in. I recorded it.
Big E’s cash-in was yet another great moment of the year filled with the amazing, legendary television moments of professional wrestling. At a soothing moment reminiscent of Kofi Kingston winning the WWE Championship in WrestleMania, Big E celebrated New Day in Kingston’s hometown of Boston, Massachusetts. When the Sports Jaguar Note returns to the full stadium, it will suck up WWE viewers in a big way. WWE’s decision was certainly a response to last week’s AEW Dynamite historic figures, but it’s not as urgent as it looks.
A homemade talent that has steadily risen in rank over the last 12 years, Big E is a stable choice as a WWE champion. WWE’s creative process is always an unstable variable. But if he’s strongly booked and can hold the title for quite some time, BigE is fine to be established as a permanent top star.
