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

As reported by Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, the May 11th episode of AEW Dynamite pulled in an average of 840,000 viewers with a 0.33 rating in the key 18-49-year-old demographic. That equates to 430,000 viewers.

By contrast, the May 4th edition of the show drew an average of 833,000 viewers, and a 0.32 rating in the 18-49-year-old demographic.

With Martha Hart, (Owen Hart’s wife) and his children Oje and Athena watching on in the crowd, the first match in the ring on AEW Dynamite, was the clash between Adam Cole and Dax Harwood.

The bout played out in the midst of a riotous atmosphere as Harwood’s usual tributes to Bret Hart and the Hart family were punctuated by Adam Cole channelling his inner Shawn Michaels. The former NXT Champion, even paused to ‘tune up the band’ before attempting to land a Superkick.

Cole eventually grabbed the win by forcing Harwood to submit in the Sharpshooter to a chorus of boos.

Elsewhere, Toni Storm advanced to the semi-finals in the women’s tournament while Darby Allin and Jeff Hardy cheated death in chaotic main event, which eventually saw the veteran advance.

Meanwhile, Wardlow and MJF signed on the dotted line for Double or Nothing, but only if certain conditions are met, and HOOK-hausen became a reality.
