FITE TV COO Michael Weber Says AEW Live Viewership In Europe Is "Quite Staggering"
Good news for the young promotion...
Since All Elite Wrestling launched their weekly TV show Dynamite on October 2, the young promotion has created a loyal following around the world.
One area in particular AEW has tried to grow in is Europe, with Dynamite currently available to watch on ITV in the UK and on AEW Plus in most parts of the continent. Cody Rhodes and Dustin Rhodes have also said they are planning to visit the UK later this year as part of a live event tour, however this could be affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
FITE TV COO Michael Weber recently appeared on The Wrestling Inc Daily Podcast to discuss AEW Plus and said Dynamite's live viewership in Europe on the service is "quite staggering."
Weber said: "We offer a subscription called AEW Plus that's not available in the US, Canada, Germany or France but is available in the rest of the world. It's been bought in over 100 countries and initially the interest was very encouraging and it's had a steady climb. I would say it's not a rocket ship but it's a steady climb with no fall off.
"What gets me is that I get the numbers of people watching it live and it's quite staggering how many people are watching it live from Europe which is early in the morning. They have a strong and loyal following."
