Unlike the past few weeks, there’s no way for WWE or USA to interpret the television numbers from July 15 that shows NXT as a winner in this battle of the Wednesday Night War.

AEW Dynamite crushed Triple H’s black-and-gold brand in total viewership and ratings. With the new edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter out, we can look at how they did it.

These are the quarter hour audience numbers for Fight For The Fallen and NXT. The first number is total viewers; the number in parenthesis is 18 - 49 year olds. We’ve italicized the “winner” in each... but that’s pretty clear even without formatting.

Q1: AEW 826K (374K) - NXT 693K (208K)
Cody Rhodes/Sonny Kiss vs. Keith Lee

Q2: AEW 788K (380K) - NXT 620K (175K)
Lucha Bros/FTR vs. Cameron Grimes/Damian Priest

Q3: AEW 766K (372K) - NXT 625K (196K)
FTR & The Elite vs. Shotzi Blackheart/Indi Hartwell

Q4: AEW 765K (376K) - NXT 602K (192K)
Chris Jericho & Orange Cassidy vs. Keith Lee/Dominik Dijakovic

Q5: AEW 791K (378K) - NXT 608K (179K)
The Elite/Jurassic Express vs. Keith Lee/Dominik Dijakovic

Q6: AEW 743K (373K) - NXT 641K (179K)
Interviews; Nightmare Sisters match vs. Dijakovic & Karrion Kross; Timothy Thatcher match

Q7: AEW 780K (380K) - NXT 610K (175K)
Nyle Rose & Vickie Guerrero; Jon Moxley/Brian Cage vs. Robert Stone; Io Shirai vs. Tegan Nox

Q8: AEW 844K (407K) - NXT 652K (186K)
Jon Moxley/Brian Cage vs. Io Shirai vs. Tegan Nox

You don’t need to be Tony Khan to understand those numbers.

Have fun.
