By Wade Keller, PWTorch editor


Tuesday night’s episode of NXT on USA Network (7/18) drew an average of 746,000 viewers, up from 671,000 viewers the prior week. Dominik Mysterio headlined the show as a challenger to Wes Lee and his NXT North American Title. Dominik won with help from all three other members of The Judgment Day faction at ringside.

That viewership was only second to the Seth Rollins-headlined episode where he defended against Bron Breakker on June 20. That episode drew 773,000 viewers. The average viewership in the ten weeks leading into this week’s episode was 612,000. The average this year is 607,000.

In the key 18-49 demo, the show drew a 0.21 rating, up from 0.20 the prior week. The ten-week average heading into this week’s episode was 0.17. The average so far this year is 0.15.

For comparison purposes, AEW Collsion last week drew 575,000 viewers and a 0.20 demo rating. So NXT outdrew it by 171,000 viewers and 0.01 in the key demo.
