The overnight viewerships for both the AEW Dynamite tribute to Mr. Brodie Lee and WWE NXT shows that took place on Wednesday December 30th have now been revealed.
PWTorch is reporting that the AEW show which honoured Brodie Lee, who sadly passed away a few days prior, drew an average of 977,000 viewers and brought in a 0.40 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
The site is also reporting that the NXT show from the Capitol Wrestling Center, which featured a North American Championship match and Pete Dunne vs. Roderick Strong bout brought in 586,000 viewers and a 0.12 rating.
This makes this week’s AEW Dynamite one of the most viewed wrestling shows from the promotion of the year. Fittingly, the only show to draw over 1,000,000 for AEW this year was headlined by Brodie Lee.
While AEW may have significantly outdrawn NXT this week, the numbers really aren’t important. AEW put on a fantastic tribute show to honour Brodie Lee, who we have all learnt was an amazing human being.
Please note that the Nielsen data has not yet been revealed by ShowBuzz Daily due to the New Year’s holiday. This is expected to drop on Monday morning, so stay tuned to WrestleTalk.com for any potential changes.
