While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Chris Jericho claimed that AEW Dynamite will defeat Monday Night Raw in ratings in the next few months.
This week’s episode of WWE Raw drew 1,907,000 viewers. This is down from the 2,067,000 viewers the show did last week. The 18-49 demo was a 0.54 rating, down from last week’s 0.64 rating.
On the flip side, AEW Dynamite on TNT pulled in 1,047,000 viewers, which is down from the show last week that did 1,172,000. They drew a 0.37 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is down from the previous week’s 0.48.
“Sooner or later, we’re going to start beating Raw. It’s not going to be every week, but I bet you over the next 2-4 months, maybe 4-6, we’re going to start beating Raw, and that’s my prediction that I’m saying to you guys right here. And the reason for that is we keep talking about the cool factor, but it’s the storytelling. We don’t panic, we don’t rush. We live in our own world and we book accordingly. We book smartly, if you watch our show it’s like watching the first three Star Wars episodes—one thing always leads to the next and sometimes you’ll see where the seeds were planted months earlier, but we always know what we want to do and where we want to go.”
