Dax Harwood Claps Back At Jonathan Coachman For Mocking AEW Collision Ratings



Veteran commentator Jonathan Coachman was recently tagged on Twitter by a user named Kyle Wright, who shared a screenshot of AEW Collision’s declining TV ratings during the first three weeks of its run so far.

In response, Coachman sarcastically mocked AEW fans, before stating that his previous comments about a wrestling show on Saturday came from real experience in the business. He tweeted,

“Kyle what do I know. Been out of the business too long. You don’t know AEW fans. You’re an idiot-just watch Tony will show you. Let me repeat myself for those except Kyle who clearly listened – wrestling shoes do not work on Saturdays. Never have. Never will. Now you all can try and come up with something else but try and understand some of us who are in the business kind of know what we are talking about. All that said I would never float about being right and an entire fan base being wrong. Not my style!”

Dax Harwood, one of Collision’s major stars and one half of the AEW World Tag Team Champions FTR, clapped back at Coachman, saying that building a brand takes time, before heaping praise on the AEW Collision roster as well as wrestling fans. He tweeted,

“Hey Coach. We’re trying to build a brand. It will take time; we understand that. Hopefully you do too! This roster absolutely loves wrestling. Like, an entity. LOVES it. I know you probably can’t relate to that. Will this Saturday night tv show endeavor work? Who knows.

What I do know is, we’ll all work our asses off to MAKE it work. I hope you, & people like you, give us an opportunity to show you, professional wrestling IS alive. I know you know how Monday nights work, but maybe you’ll give us more than 3 weeks to make this work.

If not, you’re more than welcome to tell me I’m wrong. What I’m not wrong about is, wrestling fans love wrestling. And we’ll always work to make them proud. Give us a chance.”

It should be noted that the latest episode of AEW Collision was pre-taped and aired just a few hours following WWE Money in the Bank 2023, which would have likely affected the ratings for the particular episode. It was also Fourth of July weekend where many people are away with their families.
