AEW Collision Ratings Struggle Following WWE Crown Jewel

AEW Collision stage

AEW Collision recorded its fourth-lowest viewership ever on November 4th.

As reported by Wrestlenomics, the November 4th episode of Collision pulled in 366,000 viewers, with a 0.09 rating in the 18-49-year-old demographic. The figure for total viewership is the lowest since October 7th when the show went head-to-head with WWE Fastlane.

Although there was no head-to-head with WWE on this occasion, the episode came just hours after Crown Jewel. The numbers continue to highlight WWE’s impact on Collision viewership, with the only episodes with fewer viewers than November 4th all going head-to-head with Premium Live Events.

On Collision, Swerve Strickland saw off AR Fox, The Kingdom defeated James McGregor & Brixton Nash, and Darby Allin was in action against Lance Archer. In the main event, FTR & La Faccion Ingobernable (Rush & Preston Vance) defeated The Gates of Agony, Big Bill, & Ricky Starks.

Special Partnership Confirmed For AEW Dynamite

It’s been reported that there will be “significant sponsorship involvement” on the November 15th episode of AEW Dynamite. More specifically, it will be centred on the tag team match between Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, Paul Wight & Kota Ibushi, and the Don Callis Family.

The sponsor involved is said to be SEGA and is likely linked to Omega’s involvement in Like A Dragon, which is published by the company.
