The ratings are in for the Tuesday May 4th episode of NXT.

As noted by ShowBuzzDaily, 761,000 people tuned in to the black and gold brand. With a 0.18 rating in the key 18-49 year-old demographic.

This is up on the previous week where the show pulled in 744,000 fans.

By comparison, the episode of AEW Dynamite from April 27th, drew 889,000 viewers, with a 0.33 rating in the key 18-49 year old demographic.

The latest episode of NXT saw The Way capture the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships. After a brutal 15-minute contest that saw Blackheart dive off the lighting scaffolding through the announce table and other high-risk manoeuvres, NXT’s resident ‘Poison Pixie’ captured the gold for her team via pinfall after delivering the Wicked Stepsister to Shotzi onto a prone steel chair.

The victory marks both LeRae and Hartwell’s first title wins in WWE with the former picking up gold in only her second championship match in the company whilst the latter was finally successful after six challenges since her signing in early 2018.

Elsewhere on the show, Anthony Henry made his NXT debut under the name Asher Hale in defeat to Cameron Grimes. While Isaiah “Swerve” Scott overcame Leon Ruff in a chaotic Falls Count Anywhere Match which opened the show. Scott was aided by a debuting AJ Francis, who attacked Ruff in the closing stages of the match.

Finn Balor also made his return to the black and gold brand, leading the attack against Karrion Kross. Kyle O’Reilly, Pete Dunne and Balor all confronted Kross but were swatted away by the NXT Champion. However, Johnny Gargano and Austin Theory blindsided the champion, leaving him laying.
