The number of live contestants and TV ratings has become the latest hot topic right now, with little competition from WWE All Elite Wrestling. Fans of both companies are constantly arguing on social media about which company is “winning”. In the last quarter of 2021, AEW Dynamite attracted more live fans than WWE Raw.

The debate is likely to intensify once the 2022 figures begin to emerge. In the last quarter of 2021, AEW reduced the number of fans on Dynamite by an average of about 1,500 compared to Smackdown. Raw is slightly less than the average Dynamite.

Dave Meltzer dropped the numbers this week Wrestling Observer Newsletter. WWE lost to AEW in terms of average number of participants per quarter. Several factors could play a role.

“We will go with the participants first. From October to the end of December. AEW paid an average of 5,644 per quarter. Smackdown TV videos averaged 7,083 paid, which has the advantage of being on a Friday night. Raw TV shows paid an average of 5,377. In the U.S., WWE home shows are paid an average of 3,947 times. They have the advantage of being on the weekends, but home shows aren’t as big a draw as TV shows.

Overall, if you talk about the average attendance for the quarter, the AEW is actually ahead with a paid margin of 5,644 to 5,150. But that’s wrong, because AEW doesn’t host home shows, which lowers their average level. By the way, the fact that the AEW is ahead in any form, especially in the New York and Chicago markets, is still big news.

Tony Khan was quick to brag when he beat AEW WWE in terms of ratings or number of participants. WWE fans say the lack of home shows will boost the AEW. AEW fans say the overall numbers are important, along with showing demographics as a reason to claim victory for their favorite shows. Lastly, the opinions of advertisers, networks and executives are very important.
