WWE and AEW’s Wednesday Night War started in October 2019 as AEW Dynamite and NXT went head-to-head every week in order to see who would come out the better show. AEW Dynamite would win in the ratings war for the majority of the time. The Wars finally came to an end in April last year after NXT moved to Tuesday nights. People like Jim Ross believed it was cop-out.

For 76 weeks, the war between the two brands raged on, and only on one occasion did AEW lose in the key 18-49 demographic rating against NXT. This was seen as a shock to many, but AEW bounced back.

All in all, WWE NXT only won 10 times compared to their rival’s 63. They have also tied on two occasions during the December 11th, 2019 and November 25th, 2020 episodes.

They clashed this week as well. While NXT featured multiple main roster talents, they were still unable to get the most out of AEW. NXT 2.0 got 676,000 viewers and 0.18 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. Meanwhile, AEW garnered a 752,000 and a 0.26 rating in key demographics. We’ll have to see if WWE beats AEW again or not.
