As noted by ShowBuzzDaily, Dynamite pulled in 1.219 million viewers, with a 0.44 rating in the key 18-49 year old demographic.

The figure marks a huge rise from their final week’s ratings in competition with NXT on Wednesday nights, where the the show drew in 688,000 viewers. This was compared with 768,000 who tuned into the see NXT.

However, NXT aired the first night of its NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver special which may have caused an increase in the figures.

It’s worth nothing that this week’s episode of Dynamite is the second-best viewership total in the history of the show, coming in behind the debut show on October 2, 2019 that had 1.4 million viewers.

By contrast NXT drew in 805,000 viewers, with a 0.22 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic for the first night in the show’s new spot on the schedule.

The April 14th edition of AEW’s flagship show ran unopposed by any other wrestling content.

The show itself featured an AEW World Tag Team Title match between Death Triangle and The Young Bucks. While a chaotic Falls Count Anywhere Match between TNT Champion Darby Allin and Matt Hardy closed the show.

The stacked show also featured an appearance from former undisputed boxing heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson. The former boxing star initially acted as a special enforcer in the match between Chris Jericho and Dax Harwood. However, he would eventually end up joining Chis Jericho’s Inner Circle faction.
