The wrestling world eagerly anticipated the recent episode of AEW Collision, which showcased a marquee match between MJF and Kenny Omega.

However, despite the high-profile bout, the show experienced a decline in viewership.

AEW Collision Ratings: Recent Performance

AEW Collision’s episode on October 28th, which culminated in the much-hyped MJF vs Kenny Omega match, managed to pull in 439,000 viewers, reportedly based on the fast national numbers from Alfred Konuwa of Forbes.

This figure represents a 15% drop from the previous week. Furthermore, the show garnered 157k viewers in the 18 to 49 demographic, marking a 26% decline from the preceding week.

Previous Week’s Numbers

To put things into perspective, the October 21st episode of AEW Collision attracted 482,000 viewers, slightly down from the 504,000 viewers the week before that. Out of these, 189k belonged to the 18 to 49 age bracket.

AEW Collision: Highlights of the Episode

This particular episode of AEW Collision wasn’t just about MJF and Kenny Omega. The show also featured Hikaru Shida defending her AEW Women’s World Title against Abadon in a Halloween-themed match filled with gimmicks.

Despite these high-octane matches, the viewership didn’t see the expected spike.

The Bigger Picture

While the decline in viewership might raise eyebrows, it’s essential to consider the broader context. AEW decided to announce the MJF vs Kenny Omega match for the World Title on Collision only on the preceding Wednesday’s Dynamite episode.

Perhaps a more extended promotional period might have generated more buzz and anticipation.

The overarching question remains: What strategies should AEW adopt to bolster the viewership of Collision? With such high-profile matches already on the card, it’s evident that the promotion needs to rethink its approach to keep the audience engaged and attract new viewers.
