It’s a good day to be a lucha libre promotion looking at the ratings sports fans. Then again it’s always good to be AAA in that position, as once again the promotion remained a top the table in the ratings battle. Friday’s showing on TV Azteca’s Azteca 7 station, which featured Kenny Omega vs. Fenix and the rest of the Heroes Inmoratles card, drew a 0.73 rating and 410.76K viewers, up nearly 16K from last week’s 0.70 and 394.82K viewers. Perhaps most impressive is that AAA was able to gain an increase despite the show being bumped from its 4:30 p.m. CST time slot to 10:30 p.m. CST, decent proof that AAA’s audience will follow the show regardless of the time. With ratings up two consecutive weeks it looks like AAA could be in a bit of an upswing.

 

Meanwhile, both Nacion de Lucha Libre and CMLL had some good news this week, if on a slightly smaller scale than AAA. NLL’s show on Imagen TV drew a 0.44 rating and 248.20K viewers, up 19.25K from last week’s 0.41 and 228.95K, continuing their trend back towards normalcy after going against Canelo Alvarez two Saturday’s ago. And in what has to be a relief, CMLL finally had some upward movement, drawing a 0.33 rating and 184.54K viewers for Saturday afternoon’s showing on Televisa’s Gala TV. While the number is still lower than what CMLL was drawing at times in the summer, the 42K plus increase from last week’s disastrous 0.25 and 142.29K viewers can at least be seen as a step in the right direction, as well as finally taking CMLL out of the position of being the least watched wrestling show in Mexico.

 

That’s right; CMLL was able to overtake one of the WWE shows this week, though they still lagged behind RAW. WWE’s Monday night program drew a 0.34 rating and 191.94K viewers, down around 11K from last week but still enough to beat CMLL. Smackdown meanwhile fell to last place despite gaining viewers around 3K fans, drawing a 0.30 and 166.62K viewers (up from last week’s 0.29 and 163.54K).
