This past week’s Canadian viewership figures are out, which POST Wrestling covers on a weekly basis for WWE and AEW programming in the country.
With the Toronto Blue Jays contending for a Wild Card position in the MLB playoffs coupled with a series over the past week with the New York Yankees and Aaron Judge’s home run chase, baseball viewership was through the roof in Canada. The Jays games on Monday and Wednesday night each topped one million viewers in the country against Raw and Dynamite.
In the 25-54 demo, it was essentially a dead heat between SmackDown and Dynamite that were within 200 viewers of each other.
Below are the Canadian viewership figures for each show (note: AEW Rampage doesn’t air on television in Canada and is only available through TSN’s streaming channel):
