In a recent post on Twitter, the faction head took a shot at AEW by demeaning its viewership ratings openly, as you can see below.

T-Bar seems to be highlighting the fact that AEW’s best part of the night could not get above 850,000 viewers, and that Retribution and his own appearances had a huge mark at 1.75 million viewers. T-Bar alone had a viewership of 1.57 million viewers as he delivered a segment.

AEW once again threw it all in the ring on Dynamite. The content was great and the promotion had hopes of clearing the 1 million mark once more. They aim to stay up there. 

T-Bar does not hold back with his thoughts with Retribution

However, the ratings did disappoint but managed to still stay well ahead of NXT. AEW’s static position in the viewership ratings has surely led to a lot of questions.

The most prominent one among these is- How long can AEW keep this up? There’s only so many former WWE Superstars it can get a major pop out of.

After its dominance over NXT in the Wednesday Night Wars that still continues, fans have begun looking at AEW’s competition with Monday Night Raw.

Although the two shows air on different days, the competition can still very much take place. However, Raw’s worst segment still does considerably better than that of AEW’s best.

WWE has stayed silent and not taken too many shots, but it seems like they have found a face for the attacks. T-Bar is going to be seen a lot, that’s for sure. We will see him around a lot more outside the ring as well.
