NBA impact on AEW


When AEW debuted on TNT it was right at the beginning of the NBA season and they probably had tons of advertising in conjunction with America’s second most popular sports league.

Since COVID all wrestling ratings are down, but the NBA is trying to come back July 30th. You think the NBA returning to TNT could give AEW a boost ratings wise since NXT has had a slight advantage for a bit? 

No unfortunately I think it'll be the opposite, with the real sports laying waste to wrestling across the board because people have other stuff to watch now.  I think it'll hurt RAW and Smackdown far more than the Wednesday shows, which is really scary to think about low THEY can go, but numbers will probably drop all around.
