Payout Perspective:

It appears that AEW is finding a solid audience and is popular with the younger demo in live head-to-heads with NXT.  What is interesting is that NXT is doing well with the over 50 demographics as its outdrawn AEW every week in head-to-head.  Still, the AEW product is performing well and has to be pleasing TNT executives.
