WEDNESDAY NIGHT RATINGS: NXT main event pulls in 300,000 more viewers than Dynamite main event

Posted on 6/27/120 by Colin Vassallo

This weeks NXT main event featuring a triple threat match
for the North American title between Keith Lee, Finn Balor,
and Johnny Gargano was a big hit in terms of viewership as
Dave Meltzer reports it reached a high of 852,000 on
Wednesday night.

The opposing segment over at Dynamite on TNT which had Matt
Hardy in action and the Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy
confrontation did only 552,000 against NXTs main event, a
huge difference of 300,000 viewers.

Meltzer notes that AEW only won one quarter in head-to-head
battle out of eight this past Wednesday, with NXT winning
seven. AEW won six out of eight in the 18-49 demographic as
both were down in their 18-49, with NXT down 5% and AEW down
a whopping 21.4%.

This was the best audience for NXT behind the February 19
episode which did 794,000 viewers and by far the biggest gap
for an NXT win.
