The viewership numbers for last week’s AEW and NXT programs were delayed due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The numbers are now in and according to Showbuzz Daily, NXT edged it out viewership-wise with 712,000 viewers to AEW’s 710,000 viewers. AEW did a higher number in the 18-49 demographic and pulled in a 0.26 while NXT did a 0.20.
AEW Dynamite ranked in at the number seven spot in the top 150 programs on the night and NXT was ranked 25. The week prior to 11/25, the Wednesday night head-to-head was won by AEW.
NXT’s program featured the build to TakeOver: WarGames on December 6th. The men’s WarGames team has been rounded out and one-half of the women’s team is finalized. Ember Moon and Rhea Ripley joined Shotzi Blackheart’s team to face Candice LeRae, Toni Storm, Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez inside WarGames.
On AEW’s show, the build to their ‘Winter Is Coming’ show continued as Jon Moxley signed the contract to make he and Kenny Omega’s AEW World Title match official. The show also included a segment during which Taz choked Cody Rhodes after Rhodes made mention of Taz’s son ‘Hook’ training with him instead of his father. Hook was a part of the segment as well.
