• Ric Flair Wants AEW To Sign Him After Seeing Last Week’s AEW Dynamite Viewership
Last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite on TBS drew 869,000 viewers, which was 23% down from previous week’s 1.13 million viewers (a huge surprise debut was teased for previous week’s show, which was Keith Lee).
The 18-49 demo rating for last week was 0.31, which is down from previous week’s 0.41.
Last week’s numbers were the lowest since Dynamite’s move to TBS, while the viewership was the lowest since the December 1, 2021 episode.
This led to 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair tweeting the following with a photoshopped pic of him with AEW wrestler MJF:
“In The History Of The Wrestling Business, One Thing Is Certain: When You Need A Rating, You Call The Naitch! It’s Been 50 Years Of Getting Ratings, And Apparently I’m Needed Again At Almost 73. #RatingsKing”
