WWE NXT has gained significant momentum in its television ratings and viewership, with Becky Lynch at the helm of this resurgence. According to data released by Wrestlenomics, Tuesday night’s NXT episode arrested an average of 850,000 viewers, marking a significant boost of 26 percent from the previous week’s count.
Such impressive viewership has not been seen since October 28, 2020, setting a new high for the popular wrestling program. Specifically, among the key demographic group aged 18-49, 335,000 viewers tuned in. This surge represents a 0.26 P18-49 rating – an impressive 40 percent hike from the previous week and the highest since September 1, 2020.
Tuesday night saw Becky Lynch triumph over Tiffany Stratton in an intense match for the NXT Women’s Championship, concluding the main event. Wrestlenomics’ analysis of quarter-hour data sheds light on the significant gain of over 200,000 viewers during the match itself. The viewership figures peaked at a whopping 1.06 million viewers during the show’s eight-minute overrun after ten in the night.
Further fueling the intrigue is the overwhelming response on WWE’s YouTube channel: The video capturing Lynch’s victory has amassed approximately 400,000 views as of Wednesday, 5 PM ET, tripling the views of the channel’s next most popular clip.
Tuesday’s NXT performance presents a solid challenge to AEW Dynamite’s same-week TV ratings. The previous Dynamite episode had an overall viewer count of 887,000, out of which 409,000 belonged to the P18-49 group.
NXT’s viewership boom might also owe a debt to WWE’s main roster’s fresh faces, including those from The Judgment Day. Dominik Mysterio, the current NXT North American Champion, remains a consistent entity on the show after his championship victory a few weeks ago.
As the lines between WWE’s main roster and the NXT blur, fans can expect more such intriguing encounters and stellar performances driving wrestling enthusiasm to new highs.
