This rating war is reminiscent of WWE(then WWF) vs. WCW clash. Like WCW, AEW is an up and coming wrestling promotion with veterans and new talents, and exciting storylines. Fans are tuning in every week for the exciting matches.

On the other side, WWE has brought in new writers for the weekly shows. According to reports, at least five writers are working on a single show’s storylines. Even if the RAW ratings are low compared to Dynamite, the show’s weekly ratings are going up.
