    • I think there’s just too much wrestling content (with three hour Raws) and not enough people are watching on a consistent basis. Even Lucha standing out as a completely different show has to find a core audience since it’s not traditional wrestling. People sample it, then like it or leave it. I think both TNA and Lucha hit peak audiences early on and now they’re trying to find the water level on smaller networks. [JC]

      • LU isn ‘t completely different though. It’s quasi WWE complete with evil owner, gimmick matches and mitb

        LU could be completely different but they choose to be AE with luchas
