It looks like Shaquille O’Neal gave a big boost to AEW Dynamite this week.
AEW Dynamite drew 934,000 viewers this week, their highest number of 2021 and highest since the December 30th show. AEW ranked number 6 in the key demo and on the cable charts with a P18-49 rating of 0.33 (427,000 viewers).
Meanwhile, NXT drew a 0.20 P18-49 rating (249,000) viewers and they ranked number 19 on cable.
Both AEW and NXT are expecting big numbers next week since AEW will be coming off the Revolution pay-per-view and NXT will deliver a stacked card headlined by Adam Cole challenging Finn Balor for the NXT Championship.
