Invasion boosts NXT ratings, AEW slightly wins night

NXT's invasions of Raw and SmackDown led to the show getting a boost in the ratings last night.

This week's NXT averaged 813,000 viewers, the best audience for the show since October 2. This was the smallest gap there's been between NXT and AEW Dynamite, though AEW still finished slightly ahead with 822,000 viewers last night.

In the 18-49 demo, AEW finished eighth for the night with a 0.35 rating. NXT came in 12th with a 0.30 rating.

Dynamite and NXT were both up from last week. Against game seven of the World Series, Dynamite averaged 759,000 viewers and NXT averaged 580,000.

AEW averaged a 0.33 rating in the demo last Wednesday, while NXT averaged a 0.18.

NXT was also up from the 698,000 viewers it did against game two of the World Series on October 23. Dynamite was down from the 963,000 viewers it averaged that week.

AJ Styles, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson appeared on last night's NXT, but them being on the show wasn't announced in advance. They attacked The Undisputed Era in an angle right before the episode went on the air and faced Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee & Matt Riddle in the main event.

Last night's Dynamite was the go-home show for Saturday's Full Gear pay-per-view.
