While it has been on the card since August this year, now the traditional ratings and viewership war between two of the world-famous sports juggernauts has been made official as per the latest report.

It will be thrilling to see if Khan bounces back from his last beatdown or not.

Now, let’s have a deeper flashback of how the Tuesday tug-of-war went for both promotions.

The aftermath of a shattering Tuesday Night War for Tony Khan

Long before Collision moved to Friday from Saturday, AEW shifted its flagship show, Dynamite, to Tuesday from Wednesday to jump on a direct battle with the yellow brand.

However, it went totally wrong for Khan with AEW Dynamite gaining 609,000 total viewers with WWE receiving 921,000. Thanks to the loaded NXT card including John Cena, The Undertaker, Rhea Ripley, and Cody Rhodes.

However, Khan still found a way to vent his frustration to his rivals.

He bashed John Cena, The Undertaker for not being able to draw 1 million viewers with their huge star power.

He also took a dig at Vince McMahon to channel his rage.

Now, it’s yet to be seen how the upcoming rating war plays out for Khan on November 17.
