As noted earlier, this week’s WWE NXT drew more total viewers than AEW Dynamite. NXT had the benefit of several top stars from Raw and SmackDown so this was expected by most people who follow the trends.
Cody Rhodes responded to a fan who asked for his thoughts on this week’s ratings:
All of the news was not bad for AEW. In fact, they won the ratings with almost every demographic category except for viewers over 50 years old. NXT was also helped by the overrun when AEW viewers turn away from TNT to watch the final minutes of the unopposed NXT.
Next week’s ratings will be interesting because AEW will deliver a stacked line-up and the Survivor Series hype will be done so, in theory, NXT should go back to being the NXT brand that everyone is familiar with. I guess we’ll see if Vince McMahon decides that more Raw and SmackDown stars will be needed on the show going forward.
