Coming on a night where they faced competition in the form of three of the four major sports, AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT ratings were both up from last week.

Last night's Dynamite was up 16.6 percent in total viewers, averaging 901,000 viewers. NXT was also up 6.5 percent, averaging 753,000 viewers. 

The combined viewership of 1.654 million once again beat the third hour of this Monday's Raw. It was the highest combined Wednesday night audience since February 19. 

The AEW number was the largest audience for the show since March 18, which was the first night of closed set shows.

In the 18-49 demo, AEW averaged a 0.36 rating, up 20 percent from last week. Dynamite finished fifth overall on cable behind two NBA games, Tucker Carlson Tonight, and Real Housewives. That was the second best number of the year in that category for AEW. 

NXT saw an 11.1% increase in the 18-49 demo from last week, averaging a 0.20 rating. NXT finished 27th overall on cable for the night.

The combined 18-49 number of 0.56 beat all three hours of Raw on Monday. 

The story in the other demo categories was similar to most weeks in that NXT won the 50+ category with a 0.39 to 0.33 advantage, the exact same numbers as last week. AEW won every other demo and doubled or nearly doubled NXT in almost every category, particularly in the younger demos. 

AEW's strongest category was men 18-49, where Dynamite averaged a 0.45 rating, tied for third on cable for the night. It's notable that AEW averaged a 0.29 rating in people 18-34. That beat Raw this week by itself, which averaged a 0.28 in that category. 

Here's a look at the last 10 weeks of overall viewership and 18-49 demo numbers for both shows:
