AEW ratings sunk over 18% this week, leading to a rare ratings win for WWE NXT.
Most experts attribute the ratings dive to recent comments AEW President and Pro Wrestling Savior Tony Khan made about Linda Hogan.
Khan made a brave and stunning statement last week, banning Linda from AEW events due to controversial statements that she had made. Despite the risks, Khan stood by his morals and it looks like AEW is paying a price for it.
Most experts had assumed for awhile that people were tuning in weekly hoping for a surprise debut of Ms. Hogan. With Khan’s brave statement those hopes are dashed and it looks like fans are changing the channel.
