Both NXT Dynamite were coming off the back of big weeks for the their products.
NXT hosted WarGames this past weekend, whilst last week’s Dynamite saw Kenny Omega capture the AEW Championship from Jon Moxley.
The gap between the vieweing figures for this week’s shows, as reported by Bryan Alvarez of Pro Wrestling Insider, are very significant.
Dynamite’s lineup included Sting speaking in AEW for the first time, an interview with Shaq and MJF defeated Orange Cassidy to win the Dynamite Diamond Ring for a second successive year.
It seems that the returns of Finn Balor and Karrion Kross weren’t enough to raise their figure near that of AEW.
Tony Khan has been quick to comment on the figures.
