In a teaser clip to promote the premiere episode, Madden acknowledged that Punk and Danielson are certainly huge stars of the company However, he asked Flair, what have they contributed to AEW?

“Well, if I’m looking at the ratings, I don’t know what they’ve contributed.”

Pro wrestling is a business which is largely driven by television ratings and rights fees. ‘The Nature Boy’ said Punk and Bryan have had successful careers, but so far, they’ve failed to deliver for AEW where it count:

“Well, if I’m looking at the ratings, I don’t know what they’ve contributed,” said Flair. “Yeah, certainly, as you said, they’re both big stars in the business. Both have had a lot of success, but I don’t know how to answer that question, because all you can do, as we do with football or any other show, is look at the ratings.”

“To me, that show should never do less than 1.1 million. If they get there once, and bring in all this talent, and go back, then there’s something wrong,” Flair continued.
