NXT averaged 916,000 viewers, while AEW attracted 893,000. This was NXT’s second best ever viewership since the start of the two shows going head to head.
It isn’t all bad reading for AEW how ever, NXT still trailed Dynamite in the ever important 18-49 demographic. AEW earned a 0.39, while WWE only managed 0.30. This was also AEW second lowest viewed show since they started broadcasting.
