AEW Collision posted its second-largest audience of the year for a taped episode on the night before Revolution.

The March 2 episode, taped three nights earlier in Huntsville, averaged 455,000 viewers and 175,000 viewers (0.13) in the 18-49 demographic on TNT, per Wrestlenomics.

The audience increased by 18 percent this week while the key demo audience grew by 21 percent over the previous week’s live edition of Collision.

It was Collision’s best performance in both categories since February 10 and represented its second-largest audience and 18-49 audience of the year.

Collision aired against the L.A. Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets (3,046,000 viewers and 1,047,000 in 18-49) on ABC, a college basketball game between Tennessee and Alabama (1,566,000 and 492,000 in 18-49) on ESPN, and Michigan St. vs. Purdue (1,321,000 and 394,000 in 18-49) on Fox, per Sports Media Watch.

In the 18-49 demo, males grew by 27 percent from 95,000 to 121,000 with females increasing by 10 percent from 49,000 to 54,000.

Adults 18-34 grew 32 percent to 54,000 viewers including males nearly doubling from last week while females in the demo declined from 21,000 to 14,000.

Adults 35-49 averaged 122,000 viewers for a 20 percent gain including a big increase among female viewers.

The show was headlined by an eight-man tag with Christian Cage, Killswitch, Roderick Strong & Brian Cage defeating Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, HOOK & Daniel Garcia.

Last week’s edition of Collision aired on the same day as WWE’s Elimination Chamber from Western Australia, which has also impacted Collision’s viewership regardless of the WWE’s premium live event airing head-to-head or earlier in the morning.

This Saturday’s Collision will be taped on Thursday night in Duluth, Georgia.
