• AEW President Tony Khan & Chris Jericho React To AEW Losing To NXT In Viewership Again

AEW Dynamite lost to WWE NXT for the third time in a row this week in regards to viewers. Both nights of NXT Great American Bash drew more viewers than both nights of AEW Fyter Fest.

This week’s episode of NXT (Great American Bash) drew 759,000 viewers, which is down from previous week’s 792,000 viewers. On the other hand, this week’s episode of AEW (Fyter Fest) drew 715,000 viewers, which is down from previous week’s 748,000 viewers.

AEW drew a 0.28 rating and NXT drew a 0.20 rating in the 18-49 demographic this week.

AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter to emphasize on how winning the demos is the main thing. As AEW defeated NXT in all demos except the 50+ one, the company is focusing on that.

“If anyone thinks I consider being a top 7 show on cable anything but a huge win, they’re incorrect. A win in the demo is a win in the business, and this is a business. I know the industry wasn’t talking about the demo as much 20 years ago, but it’s what drives our revenue today.”

He then posted the chart to show that AEW defeated NXT in the main 18-49 demo.

Some fans called out Khan for giving the rating too much importance and arguing over it, after which he responded the following.

He then tweeted that WWE fans give importance to the 18-49 demo for RAW and SmackDown, but they say it’s not important on Wednesdays.

Chris Jericho also declared a win on Twitter as AEW won in the demos.
