The data shows AEW's key metrics like TV ratings and pay-per-view sales have grown over time
All Elite Wrestling programs have increased viewership with African American and Hispanic viewers, year-over-year, according to data shared with Wrestlenomics. AEW's portion of viewers who are people of color, though, is still well behind that of any of the three major WWE programs or even Impact Wrestling.
Wrestlenomics estimates 2021 revenue of $1.102 billion, net income of $174.5 million -- both new annual records for WWE.
When Dynamite was in its previous timeslot on TNT, it was typically preceded by a movie. Often "The Equalizer" or "The Accountant" aired. Now Dynamite has a new lead-in, and it has, so far, proven to be a significant benefit.
