NXT ranked fourth on cable on Tuesday night for a taped edition of the show featuring a Women’s Championship match.

The February 20 episode averaged 616,000 viewers and 237,000 (0.18) in the 18-49 demographic, according to Wrestlenomics.

Despite the show being taped, the 18-49 audience increased by 8% this week. However, the overall viewership dropped by 5% and was NXT’s lowest audience on the USA Network since July 4.

NXT ranked fourth among cable originals, which was led by Vanderpump Rules on Bravo.

In Canada, NXT averaged approximately 81,000 viewers and 26,000 in the 25-54 demographic on Sportsnet 360, which represent decreases of 31% and 28% respectively from the last week. The show did not rank among the top ten sports programs for the night. It was NXT’s lowest audience in Canada since December 12.

It featured Shotzi challenging Lyra Valkyria for the NXT Women’s Championship and an impromptu match between Valkyria and Lash Legend after Shotzi tore her ACL.
