The total viewership and demo ratings for the latest instalment of AEW Dynamite have been revealed.

The March 16th edition of AEW Dynamite was headlined by the Cage Match for the AEW Women’s World Championship between Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa.

After clawing her way back to the top of the rankings, Thunder Rosa finally defeated Baker to claim her first championship in AEW. The Mexican star fighting her way through thumb-tacks, chairs and absent referees to claim a memorable win.

The show opened with the six-man tag team match between reDRagon and Adam Cole and Jurassic Express and Hangman Adam Page. The bout was a spectacular high-octane affair which was eventually won Cole’s team.

Elsewhere, Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley defeated Wheeler Yuta and Chuck Taylor. After the match Yuta slapped William Regal, seemingly in an effort to show he wanted to join their team. While The Hardy’s saw off Private Party in their first match as a team in AEW, and MJF cost Wardlow his TNT Title match with Scorpio Sky.

Chris Jericho formally introduced the Jericho Appreciation Society, changing 2Point0’s name in the process.
