WWE NXT: October 12 episode viewership revealed as Hit Row exits the territory



Last night, the end WWE NXT 2.0 saw how the North American Championship changed owner, but did the change of title help the ratings? Well, it certainly didn’t hurt.

According to Showbuzz Daily, this week ‘s edition of WWE NXT 2.0 attracted 632,000 viewers, which is even with last week’ s issue. Given that NXT had to face the MLB playoffs the night before, losing the audience from last week is not impressive.

It will be interesting to see what WWE NXT 2.0 will do in two weeks for its special Halloween Havoc, one of the most watched shows of this brand 2020.

WWE NXT 2.0 ranked 33rd overall on cable on Tuesday

As for an important demonstration from 18 to 49, WWE NXT 2.0 also recorded a slight increase from last week’s 0.13 to 0.15. While viewership remained this week, the demo increased.

This certainly confirms last week’s theory that the former black-and-gold brand has found its main audience. Whether it goes up or down from here will most likely depend on the direction of the show as we progress.

Last week, WWE NXT 2.0 ranked 34th on cable television on Wednesday. This week, they climbed to 33rd place on cable. At this point, the increase, however small, must be seen as positive.

WWE NXT 2.0 opened last night with a surprisingly long match between Joe Gacy and NXT champions Tommaso Ciampa. If Gacy beat Ciampa, he would be added to the NXT title match at Halloween Havoc, making it a triple threat.

The main event of the evening was the Santos Escobar Challenge Isaiah “Swerve” Scott for the NXT North American Championship in what was probably his last appearance in the brand. Scott managed to keep his title.

However, there was a slight twist in the story as Carmelo Hayes cashed in on his winning contract in the breakout tournament to overthrow Swerve and become the new North American champion.
