AEW crosses million-plus viewership for two weeks in a row

According to Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, Fyter Fest (Night II) drew the third-most viewers in AEW history which is 1.148 million viewers which is 12% more than last week’s Fyter Fest (Night I).

More importantly, the demographic key of 18 to 49-year-old was 0.44 rating in the key demographic. Which is 10% more than the last week’s 0.40 in the key demographic.

The viewership count is getting bigger and bigger each week and this might be a thing that should concern WWE because in the Wednesday night wars AEW is able to defeat NXT by a big margin.

With the NBA Finals officially ending, and the return of the live crowd, these numbers look great.

Many fans might have turned to AEW to see the possible debuts of Daniel Bryan and CM Punk‘s return to the in-ring action which is still in the works.

All Elite Wrestling has not officially confirmed these rumors but this news surely keeps a wrestling fan coming back for more.
