• “I don’t think there’s casual wrestling fans anymore” – CM Punk
During the post AEW Full Gear media scrum, CM Punk talked about the AEW audience and if a lot of WWE fans started watching All Elite Wrestling because of him.
Here’s what Punk said:
“I definitely think there’s overlap. I don’t know if everybody who was a WWE fan came over here specifically just to watch me but what I recognize in front of an AEW audience is an audience that I used to wrestle in front of prior to coming to the WWE.
They’re wrestling fans yanno and I will never understand the criticism of appealing to your fan base. If this is our fan base, give them what they want and everybody’s happy.
Now I understand building a business, people talk about trying to get casuals here, I don’t think there’s casual wrestling fans anymore.
My opinion, maybe I’m wrong and maybe somebody at TNT is going to get mad because I’m saying this and am of this opinion but our fans are wrestling fans and we give them wrestling.”
The hardcore and casual audience in pro-wrestling has definitely decreased tremendously, as AEW barely draws 1 million viewers, while WWE shows barely pull 2 million viewers in USA.
