Showbuzz Daily has experienced a delay in reporting this week’s figures and therefore, we don’t know NXT ranked against its competition.

It was the largest number NXT has posted in overall viewership and the key demo since the Spring Breakin’ special on April 25 and was up five percent in viewers and nine percent in the 18-49 demo from last week`s show.

There was a big increase among women 18-49 with their highest number in that category since May 9 while males in the demo dropped by three percent.

Adults 18-34 were up by nine percent and adults 35-49 grew by 11 percent.

In Canada, the show averaged approximately 46,000 viewers and 25,000 in the 25-54 demographic on Sportsnet 360, up from 44,000 and 16,000 the week prior.

Beyond the follow-up from Battleground, the show was promoted around a Weaponized Steel Cage Match between Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne, which opened the show. Carmelo Hayes retained the NXT Championship against Noam Dar in the main event, which was set up earlier in the evening. The show included surprise appearances by main roster members Baron Corbin and Mustafa Ali.
