USA Network did its best for WWE NXT to defeat AEW this week
Dave Meltzer has reported that the current NXT USA Network., Wanted to do their best to beat AEW Fyter Fest in ratings. In the most recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer revealed that the USA Network was willing to forego profits by spending fewer commercials in order to raise its ratings on this week’s NXT The Great American Bash. To boost NXT in the battle against AEW, the USA Network limited commercial breaks during the last two weeks of the yellow mark event.
This week they had considerably less commercials than last week, I mean it was very clear that this NXT show had every intention of earning ratings and not making money, as it shouldn’t say NXT. It is the USA Network who makes that call. So USA Network really wanted a victory. “
As of this writing, this week’s NXT and AEW ratings are not yet available. If the commercials played a key role in raising NXT ratings last week, the brand should expect even better numbers this week as the show had fewer commercials compared to the night of the event.
