The Continental Classic continued to be a boon for AEW Collision’s numbers

AEW’s YouTube

The numbers are in for the Dec. 23 episode of AEW Collision on TNT.

According to Wrestlenomics, the latest Collision drew an audience of 489,000 and did a .16 rating among 18-49 year olds. For the second straight week, both are up from the week before and are the best numbers AEW’s Saturday show’s done since October.

Collision once again ran into competition from the NFL on Dec. 23. Numbers aren’t in for the primetime game yet, but as Bills/Chargers was exclusive to NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service it probably didn’t draw the NFL’s usual gaudy numbers. But it’s still football, so millions were undoubtedly watching that — plus it was Christmas weekend, so there were lots of options for people to choose.

That AEW grew its audience last Saturday is impressive. There was a lot going on in Collision’s latest episode, but the fact the show’s numbers improved each week of the Continental Classic tournament suggest it was a draw for Tony Khan’s company — at least on the weekends.

Collision is off this week while AEW runs its Worlds End PPV, then returns in 2024 for a Saturday free of NFL action. We’ll see if the hot streak continues without the Continental Classic. In the meantime, here’s a look at each Collision’s viewership and demo rating over the course of its history:
