After a one week break, the ratings are back and they are…pretty much the usual. We start with AAA, who was once again the king of the ratings. The promotion’s Friday show on TV Azteca’s Azteca 7 channel, which featured matches from AAA’s Invading New York show, did a 0.68 rating with 381.52K viewers for the week of October 26th. This is down from two weeks ago when they did 0.74 rating and 419.13K viewers, resulting in about a 9% drop in viewership. Despite that the number is well within AAA’s usual range and no sign of a steep drop appears to be imminent.

 

The best news of the week is for CMLL, who after a horrifying drop two weeks ago is back around their usual numbers. Gala TV’s Saturday show drew a 0.50 rating and 284.49K viewers, a 68% increase from October 12th when they only drew a 0.30 rating and 169.79K. It’s unclear what caused this increase or if the October 12th number was a fluke, but CMLL will take the number either way, especially since it moves them back up to #2 in the ratings battle. That means Nacion de Lucha Libre slipped to number three, although they should be pleased with their numbers overall as well. The promotion drew a 0.49 rating and 273.62K viewers on Imagen TV, down only around 5% from the 0.51 rating and 287.39K viewers two weeks ago. As long as they continue to stay on TV, NLL looks to have established themselves a consistent audience.

 

All three lucha libre promotions were ahead of WWE’s programming after CMLL fell behind both two weeks ago. Worse for WWE is that both programs dropped significantly; RAW went from a 0.39 rating and 217.50K viewers on October 12th to a 0.28 rating with 159.11K viewers this week (an 26% drop), while Smackdown went from a 0.39 rating and 218.15K viewers to a 0.34 rating with 192.43K viewers (an 11% drop). The Smackdown numbers are interesting as Cain Velasquez has been appearing on the shows recently and seems to have had little to no impact, despite having a huge impact for AAA in the ratings back in August. It perhaps speaks to how little WWE matters in Mexico at this point rather than anything that has to do with the former MMA star.
