• NXT Defeats AEW In Viewership On The Final Night Of The Wednesday Night War
NXT will move to Tuesday starting next week and this is happening because of the NBC Sports Network shutting down, which could result in some NHL content being aired on Wednesday nights on the USA Network.
So last night was the final night of the so called “Wednesday Night War”, where AEW Dynamite went head to head with Night 1 of NXT TakerOver: Stand & Deliver.
NXT drew 768,000 viewers last night, which is up from last week’s 654,000 viewers. They did a 0.22 rating in the 18-49 demo last night.
On the other hand, Dynamite drew 688,000 viewers last night, which is down from last week’s 700,000 viewers. They did a 0.28 rating in the 18-49 demo last night.
While NXT did have a stacked match-card, AEW brought in Mike Tyson for last night’s episode.
