In what seems like an inevitable move if you've flipped between Dynamite and NXT the past two weeks, WWE wants to bring NXT on the road to better compete with AEW's presentation.

Showbuzz Daily reported Dynamite had 1.08 million viewers for its second episode, down from the 1.4 million who tuned in for the October 2 premiere.

The numbers - especially for AEW - are down significantly from the week before when the show debuted with approximately 1.4 million viewers. Dynamite was eighth on the Wednesday cable ratings chart.

By a fairly comfortable margin, AEW Dynamite on TNT (and for this week, TruTV as well) defeated NXT on USA Network in head-to-head viewership, though both shows saw considerable drops.

NXT, meanwhile, did a four-week low of 790,000 viewers, down 11 percent from the 891,000 from last week. However, male audiences 18-49 skewed sharply towards All Elite Wrestling, drawing 0.66% to NXT's 0.29%. The number one show of the night was the MLBs Nationals versus The Dodgers at 5,856,000 viewers and 1.8 in the 18-49 rating.

Also announced are the next two matches in the AEW World Tag Team Championship Tournament, as the Lucha Brothers (Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix) take on Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy), with the winners advancing to the semifinals where they will face Private Party.
