It was yet again the tale of several different promotions in the rating battle last week. For AAA it was by in large what we’ve come to expect. The promotion’s Friday show on TV Azteca’s Azteca 7 channel drew a 0.65 rating and 368.72K viewers. While the numbers are down from last week’s 0.68 rating and 381.52K viewers, the drop in viewership was within 3% and the numbers remained within AAA’s usual range. In other words, there’s little to worry about for the promotion that remains the #1 rated wrestling show in Mexico.

 

The same cannot be said for CMLL or Nacion de Lucha Libre. CMLL’s Saturday afternoon show on Televisa’s Gala TV drew a 0.29 rating with 166.28K viewers, about a 41% drop from last week’s 0.50 rating and 284.49K viewers. These are the lowest numbers CMLL has posted for both ratings and viewership since Lucha Central began keeping track of the Nielsen ratings; CMLL’s previously lows were a 0.30 rating and 169.79K viewers the week of October 12th and a 0.30 rating and 167.76K viewers the week of July 13th. Meanwhile Nacion de Lucha Libre also posted their lowest number, drawing a 0.25 rating and 142.71K viewers, around a 47% drop from last week’s 0.49 rating and 273.62K viewers. This is not only the lowest number NLL has posted, but also the lowest number a lucha libre TV show has posted since we began keeping track of the ratings.

 

While both numbers look bad, there does appear to be extenuating circumstances. Both shows took place on the holiday Dia de Muertos and Nacion de Lucha Libre went head to head with the highly anticipated boxing match between Sergey Kovalev and Mexican icon Canelo Alvarez, which likely cut deep into their rating. There are no guarantees but it is expected both CMLL and NLL numbers will be back to normal come next weekend with little to no competition. Never the less the low numbers allowed both WWE RAW and Smackdown to overtake them this week, with RAW drawing a 0.31 rating and 172.49K viewers (up a little less than 8% from last week’s 0.28 and 159.11K) and Smackdown drawing 0.39 rating and 221.95K viewers (up around 13% from last week’s 0.34 and 192.43K).
