Last night, AEW Dynamite on TNT went up against WWE NXT on USA Network in the first of their Wednesday night head-to-heads.
The viewing numbers are not yet available but Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer has some good indicators for AEW, courtesy of Reddit user aguadovimeiro here is some of what Meltzer noted:
- AEW was the 3rd highest / most watched show from Television on Playstation View.
- Regarding Google Trends: 140k for AEW and 20k for NXT, however Google Trends stats usually are better for PPVs than TV Shows, and if it was a PPV battle between both shows, Dave would be able to say without a shadow of a doubt that AEW "killed them" but when it comes to TV it's different.
- Dave Meltzer predicts/expects over 1.2M viewers for AEW.
We'll have the viewership date later tonight.
