Viewership data is in for this week’s battle in the WWE NXT vs. AEW Dynamite Wednesday Night War.
This week, AEW won in total viewers. NXT didn’t crack the top 50 shows on cable so all of NXT’s demos weren’t available as of this publishing.

This week’s episode of AEW and NXT marked the first head-to-head battle in viewership for the new year.
All Elite Wrestling took off Christmas night two weeks ago while WWE NXT aired some random matches.
Moving along to last week, NXT took the night off by airing best of content with big matches from TakeOver events and revealing the end of the year awards while Dynamite featured a stacked card that was live.
