What Wednesday Night War? All Elite Wrestling has toasted NXT in the first midweek ratings battle.
Here is a breakdown of the television numbers:
“Professional wrestling’s “Wednesday Night Wars” officially started on cable television last night, when the new weekly AEW wrestling show debuted to 1.4 million viewers, besting USA Network’s “NXT,” which put up 891,000 viewers (down 11% from last week’s show). Among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic, “Dynamite” scored 878,000 viewers to “NXT’s” 414,000 (up 1% from its week-ago broadcast).”
Earlier today, WWE of course released a statement on AEW’s premiere on TNT, but are you surprised they were defeated by such a large margin?
