Report: Vince McMahon Frustrated With WWE NXT Ratings

The boss is not happy...

Since the ongoing coronavirus pandemic began, WWE's viewership has declined across all of their programming. Ratings for the company's flagship show Monday Night Raw have fallen by an average of 17.2 percent, while Friday Night SmackDown has dropped by an average of 12.3 percent.

NXT's viewership has also declined by 10.3 percent from an average of 736,000 viewers before the pandemic to an average of 660,000. The black and gold brand has also been beaten in the ratings by AEW: Dynamite for much of 2020. 

Vince McMahon has already shown he is prepared to make sudden changes as Paul Heyman was replaced by Bruce Prichard as Raw Executive Director last night, and Paul Davis at WrestlingNews.co reported the boss has been frustrated with the black and gold brand's ratings.

McMahon is not expected to make any changes at the moment, however, and Triple H will continue to oversee the black and gold brand for the time being. The company is looking to turn ratings around, though, and Davis noted there have been conversations about using more talent from Raw and SmackDown on Wednesday nights, similar to Charlotte Flair's recent role on NXT.
