NXT Wins Final Wednesday Night Wars – The final day of the so called Wednesday Night War saw NXT defeat AEW Dynamite in viewership. This is the final head-to-head battle for the two brands as NXT is moving to Tuesdays beginning next week.
Wednesday’s Dynamite episode drew 688,000 viewers on TNT (-12.000 from last week), while the “Takeover: Stand & Deliver” edition of NXT drew 768,000 viewers on the USA Network (+114.000 from last week). It should be noted that Takeover also aired via the WWE Network on Peacock, offering no commercials. Viewership for Peacock is not available.
AEW drew a 0.28 rating in the 18-49 demographic while NXT drew a 0.22 in the same demo this week. Last week’s AEW show drew a 0.26 rating while the NXT episode drew a 0.21 in that demographic.
NXT viewership topped AEW by 11.63% this week, while AEW’s 18-49 key demo rating topped NXT by 27.27%.
Dynamite was down 1.7% in total viewers this week, but up 7.7% in the 18-49 key demographic rating. This was the second lowest Dynamite viewership of this year, behind the January 6 show that went up against news coverage of the Capitol riot. It was tied with the March 17 show for the third lowest rating in the key demo behind last week and the January 6 show.
NXT viewership was up 17.4% from last week, and up 4.8% in the 18-49 key demo rating. This was the best NXT audience for the year, and the best 18-49 rating. Again, these numbers do not include the viewership from the Peacock/WWE Network airing, which offered no commercials to viewers.
