WWE NXT viewership (6/1/21) drops for second straight week



The live viewership numbers for WWE NXT are in and saw a drop.

The show drew 668,000 viewers, which is down from the 698,000 viewers the show did on May 25th, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer. As a result, this marked the second straight week viewership has slipped for the black and gold brand.

That is down 6.6 percent from the same week last year, which had competition by going head-to-head with AEW Dynamite. The 18-49 demographic rating, which is the key demo, wasn’t available. The show did a 0.13 rating two weeks ago.
