The ratings are in for this week. AEW got all Beach Break this week and NXT advertised an Edge appearance. Who took it?
This week as in most weeks, AEW Dynamite took the crown with 844,000 viewers while NXT drew 610,00 viewers. In the valuable 18-49 viewer demographic, AEW did a 0.32 while NXT did a 0.15. Interesting to note that while the other demos are available for AEW, they are not for NXT because the show didn’t make it into the Top 50 shows.

Botch Take: Yikes! Many backstage were sure NXT would win this week given the advertised appearance of Edge. How interesting that AEW not only won but won handily. The rumor is that USA is looking to move NXT to another night (which we reported on [here]). Given numbers like these, that would likely be a very good idea.
