WWE NXT Defeats AEW Dynamite For The First Time In Wednesday Night Wars



WWE NXT reigned supreme in the Wednesday Night Wars, for the first time since it started going head-to-head with AEW Dynamite on Wednesday nights. After seven weeks of trailing behind the recently launched show on TNT, NXT finally defeated AEW, albeit with the help of main-roster superstars.

NXT raked in 916,000 viewers this week, edging out Dynamite who had 893,000 viewers tuning in this week. This was NXT’s highest rating since the debut two-hour episode on October 2.

After NXT invaded RAW this week, Triple H appeared in the main-event and challenged the main-roster superstars to appear on Wednesday, saying that there is an open door for the everyone.

NXT featured Undisputed Era’s Adam Cole taking on Dominik Dijakovic in a Ladder Match in the main-event, along with matches featuring main-roster superstars like The Revival, Becky Lynch, Ricochet, Viking Raiders and several other talents who appeared during the brawl segments.

AEW in comparison had a packed card, including a Fenix vs Nick Jackson and Jon Moxley vs Darby Allin matchup in the main-event. A major announcement by Chris Jericho was also announced beforehand.

Cody Rhodes and AEW World Champion Chris Jericho responded to the defeat in the ratings war. Cody accepted defeat and said they’ll work harder next time.

“Take it on the chin, learn from it, get up off the mat and get to work. Excuses are for assholes.”

Jericho, meanwhile, wasn’t so humble in defeat and said that its a marathon and a not a sprint in the Wednesday Night Wars.

“Remember guys, it’s a marathon not a sprint…..”

The win for NXT was undoubtedly due to the influx of several main-roster stars. However, it will be interesting to see if they are able to sustain this momentum heading into the coming weeks, where they won’t have the luxury of bringing in main-roster wrestlers every week.
