The two shows go head-to-head on the same night and time slot as NXT airs on the USA Network and Dynamite on TNT.
It’s been billed as the Wednesday Night Wars between WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite due to the similarities from the Monday Night Wars between WWE and WCW.
NXT on the USA Network averaged 810,000 viewers for last week’s show that marked the second straight week that WWE has beaten AEW in the ratings. Dynamite drew 663,000 viewers last week.
