Last night saw the battle of the two brands once again as WWE NXT went head to head with AEW Dynamite. Both brands did their best to draw in the crowds. NXT pulled out all the stops and brought in superstars from the main roster such as The Good Brothers, Rhea Ripley, Kevin Owens, and Shinsuke Nakumara. On the hand, AEW Dynamite had four major title matches scheduled for the night so much so that Dynamite felt more like a PPV rather than a weekly episodic show.
Well, which strategy worked out? The numbers are finally in. According to Wrestling Headlines, Dynamite pulled in 752,000 viewers with 0.26 key demo rating whereas NXT drew in 676,000 viewers with 0.18 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The key demographic viewership breakdown had AEW Dynamite ahead of NXT with 339,000 to NXT’s 235,000.
This meant that AEW Dynamite had beaten NXT in the ratings yet again. Tony Khan took to Twitter to post a photo of Morgan Freeman’s Eddie Dupris character from the “Million Dollar Baby” movie with the words “One hundred and ten” written across.
This isn’t the first time that AEW Dynamite has beaten NXT in the ratings war. A couple of years ago, Dynamite consistently outperformed NXT in terms of viewership that forced WWE to move NXT from Wednesday to Tuesday.
