AEW Dynamite Rating and Viewership (US)

Want to find out every AEW Dynamite Ratings, viewership and demo since the show started in 2019? Well look no further! Keep on reading to find out more.

AEW Dynamite is the weekly Wednesday Night television show produced by All Elite Wrestling (AEW). The company was founded in 2019 by President Tony Khan, flanked by the Executive Vice Presidents (EVPs) Kenny Omega, Nick & Matt Jackson (The Young Bucks) and Cody Rhodes. Along with other stars like Chris Jericho and Adam Page, it instantly became one of the top wrestling promotions in the United States.

The AEW Dynamite Ratings opened on their highest viewership yet. On October 2nd, 2019, the first ever episode of AEW Dynamite aired, going head-to-head with WWE’s own Wednesday night show, NXT. Despite NXT debuting on TV the week prior, AEW shot into the ratings lead, pulling in an incredible 1.4 millions fans.

The should would get over a million viewers a handful of times, but eventually settled into ratings between 650,000 and 900,000 viewers per week. The AEW Dynamite ratings were dipping, but were still higher than anybody had expected. Rumours were that TNT, the network in which AEW Dynamite was broadcast, was expecting viewership of around 400,000 for the wrestling show.

Viewership would fall as the global pandemic affected the AEW Dynamite ratings. With fans no longer allowed to attend and COVID-19 restrictions almost suffocation, AEW Dynamite ratings bounced between 600,000 and 800,000 for months, although they grew close to a million at the years end.

The AEW Dynamite ratings grew further, especially with some huge signings for AEW. CM Punk made his long awaited return to wrestling after seven years out when he made his AEW debut in August 2021, with AEW Dynamite ratings reacting accordingly.

Other big stars followed, including the likes of Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole and Keith Lee, all former champions in WWE. AEW Dynamite ratings have continued to grow, so much so that getting under a million viewers per week is seen as a failure.


The ‘Wednesday Night War’ between AEW and NXT began when AEW announced their Wednesday night show AEW Dynamite. This went opposite Triple H’s NXT show, which moved slots and expanded to a 2 hour show to compete with AEW.

NXT even broadcast their first show a week before AEW Dynamite debuted, trying to entice fans to watch their show before AEW even had anything broadcast.

However, it was not much of a Wednesday Night War. NXT only bested AEW Dynamite for two weeks in total, and in April 2021 WWE made the decision to move NXT permanently to Tuesday Nights.

AEW Dynamite won the ratings war without breaking a sweat, and Vince McMahon was reportedly so angry with the loss that he took over NXT, leading to the creation of the new NXT 2.0.
