Wednesday’s Dynamite drew the best audience since the Second Anniversary episode on October 6, and the second-best key demo rating since September 29. This is obviously not a fair comparison for this week with RAW going up against a strong NFL playoff game, but AEW can say that they had the #1 wrestling show on cable this week in the 18-49 key demographic by doing a 0.44 rating compared to the 0.43 scored by RAW.
