AEW Dynamite ratings are in, and the Wednesday night show didn’t quite measure up to the total viewership of the October 3rd episode of WWE NXT.
Ahead of the October 3rd episode of NXT, it was announced that Williams and Mysterio would go head to head in a rematch for the North American Title. The stakes couldn’t have been higher for Dom Dom going into the match as not only was he looking to regain his beloved championship, Rhea Ripley declared that he shouldn’t bother coming home if he was unable to recapture gold.
Meanwhile, AEW Dynamite featured Adam Copeland’s first promo since joining All Elite Wrestling, ending with Christian Cage telling his longtime friend, “Go f*** yourself.”
NXT ratings soared this week with help from Dominik Mysterio and NXT Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, earning a total viewership of 857,000 viewers and a 0.22 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic.
How Did AEW Dynamite Ratings Compare To WWE NXT?
As reported by Wrestlenomics, AEW Dynamite drew an average viewership of 800,000, not quite measuring up to that of NXT. However, Dynamite earned a 0.28 rating in the key demographic, beating NXT in that metric.
Elsewhere on Dynamite, audio issues plagued a segment featuring Adam Cole moving furniture for Roderick Strong, causing Tony Khan to ask TBS for an overrun so the segment could be replayed for those that couldn’t hear it the first time. Khan apologized for the issues, noting that Canadian viewers were also out of luck as TSN aired the US feed of the broadcast.
