According to Brandon Thurston of WrestleNomics, the show attracted 857,000 live viewers on the USA Network, marking a notable rise from the 636,000 viewers it had drawn the week before.
In the key demographic of 18-49-year-olds, the show earned a rating of 0.22, up from the previous week’s rating of 0.18. This increase in both total viewership and the 18-49 demographic rating is a positive sign for the NXT brand.
The episode featured various noteworthy matchups and segments, including Trick Williams vs. Dominik Mysterio for the North American Title, Gigi Dolin vs. Blair Davenport, Gallus vs. Butch & Tyler Bate, and an appearance by Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. It should be noted that this episode served as the fallout show from Saturday’s No Mercy pay-per-view event.
This surge in viewership represents the highest total viewership NXT has achieved since October 28, 2020, when it had 876,000 viewers. It indicates renewed interest in the NXT product and suggests that the changes and developments in the brand may be resonating with viewers.
