WWE NXT closes up on the viewership gap with AEW Dynamite for this week
This past week's episode of WWE NXT featured an invasion angle where the trio of AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, The O.C. invaded the NXT arena and before the show went on air, attacked The Undisputed Era in the parking lot. This was done in retribution for the NXT roster's invasion on the past week's episode of WWE SmackDown and this week on RAW.
AEW Dynamite also delivered a good show with Cody's promo receiving high praise from fans and pundits. According to reports, both Dynamite and NXT have seen an upward rise in ratings and like previous weeks Dynamite has topped NXT, but only barely.
