NXT beats AEW Dynamite in ratings for third straight week

Keith Lee vs. Adam Cole draws big numbers against the competition.

Night 2 of NXT’s Great American Bash was a big ratings success for WWE, defeating night 2 of AEW’s Fyter Fest-branded episodes of Dynamite.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

Overall, NXT netted 759,000 total viewers, while Dynamite reached 715,000. Not a huge difference, but thanks to Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, we can see the quarter-by-quarter breakdown that gives some interesting information.

Q1: AEW 785K (391K) | NXT 775K (235K)

Q2: AEW 695K (356K) | NXT 681K (226K)

Q3: AEW 736K (373K) | NXT 696K (235K)

Q7: AEW 695K (350K) | NXT 816K (312K)

Q8: AEW 675K (362K) | NXT 922K (355K)

The two shows were basically inverses of one another, with AEW starting strong and tapering off, and NXT growing as the broadcast went on, culminating in a trouncing of Dynamite in the final quarter, 922,000 to 675,000.

Dynamite‘s main event saw Chris Jericho take on Orange Cassidy, while NXT‘s main event was a champion vs. champion, winner-take-all matchup between NXT Champion Adam Cole and NXT North American Champion Keith Lee.
