Will Ospreay Discusses Low AEW Dynamite Ratings

Will Ospreay Discusses Low AEW Dynamite Ratings – All Elite Wrestling is grappling with significant challenges in TV viewership and ratings for its main show, Dynamite. The situation hit a critical point last week when the show drew a record-low of 502,000 viewers and a 0.16 rating in the key demographic. Notably, AEW has not reached 800,000 viewers since the April 10 episode, marking 11 consecutive weeks below that threshold.

In an interview with CBS Sports, Will Ospreay addressed the disappointing ratings, expressing his frustration but also his determination to improve.

“It sucks that it was such a low rating, but it’s just motivating me and I’m sure it’s motivating others to try and think out of the box and come back swinging,” Ospreay said. “I’m not someone who ignores that type of s—. I see it and I take note of it. I put it in the checkbook and I make sure whatever we do next week, we come back swinging. We shouldn’t ignore criticism or shy away from it. We’re still a five-year company and we’re still hitting the ropes with these things. For me, AEW still has lots of growing pains to go through.”

Ospreay emphasized the natural growing pains for any company or wrestler, especially in the first five years, and he embraces the challenge. He drew a parallel with WWE, stating:

“If we look back five years to what WWE was doing, they were at a low. But the way they’re thriving right now is inspiring to everyone. It should be something to hit. We need to change the bar and see what we must do to change things up. Like I said, I’m not the type of person to shy away from it. I enjoy criticism.”

Ospreay’s next big challenge will be against Swerve Strickland for the AEW World Heavyweight Title at the Forbidden Door event this Sunday, aiming to bring a renewed sense of excitement and improvement to AEW.
