    Goddammit lol

    f--king shit the next three weeks are going to insane for wrestling.
    Next week- Clash of Champions and the first 2 hour live NXT (though for some reason only the first hour is on USA and the second hour is still on the Network until the head to head with AEW starts).
    Oct 2- AEW STARTS and thus the Wednesday Night Wars do too
    Oct 4- Smackdown Live on Fox starts (which I'll be there for)

    The first two weeks of AEW being split is because of the two week series finale of Suits, apparently one of USA's most popular shows (I don't have cable and when I did I never watched anything on USA except for Raw lol)

    I saw that 205 Live is basically morphing in with NXT since Smackdown is moving to Fridays. Surprised it didn't happen sooner tbh, but I guess it makes the most sense now with it being 2 hours.

    Ah ok yeah it makes sense...Suits is the only USA show I've even heard of lol They should just merge 205 and NXT. 205 live honestly has the best workers in the company and even with them having their own show they don't get to fully show what they can do.

    What is everyone's predictions for AEW's ratings week 1 on TNT? @NJPWBros (btw we still really a AEWbros tag lol)

    I've heard of guesses every where from 600k-3M lol

    If I were to guess I'd say 2M, which is high, but with Raw doing 2.2M this week I figure 2/3 of the people that watch WWE every week will be curious enough to check out their first show, then another 1/3 will be lapsed fans coming back to see if a new product catches their attention.

    I'm predicting 700k-1.3m. You have a base of a few hundred thousand, the stragglers who'll check it out because it's on TNT, and whatever lapsed or WWE fans decide to check it out.

    I'm much more conservative than you on how many current fans will watch. I think there are far more people who've fallen off over the years than there are fans who are willing to check something new out. WWE is a cult of old people, nerds, and families who have no clue.

    However many 12-25 year old fans they have will probably check it out though.
