It’s being reported that AEW shows outdrew WWE shows significantly during the month of September in terms of live crowds.
The full breakdown isn’t available yet, but the Wrestling Observer Newsletter writes:
We’ll have more next week on this when I go through all the September business numbers, but AEW did outdraw WWE significantly per show. I’ll figure with and without Arthur Ashe Stadium. For October advances, AEW is slightly ahead paid even though both Miami shows are not doing well. Really October looks closer to a dead heat with both companies way down from September because nobody has the big shows like AEW had in Newark and New York and WWE had in Philadelphia
As mentioned, September was a month that had the likes of the Arthur Ashe Stadium show in front of over 20,000 people in attendance, which won’t be replicated this coming month.
It’s always been the belief that AEW has more ‘hardcore’ fans while WWE has more ‘casual’ fans, and that is perhaps evident in statistics like these.
