While the numbers have not reflected it especially early on, AEW Dynamite has continued to put together great shows. Having their up-and-coming talent on the show helps as well. Especially with the guys that are over with the audience right now. Regardless of how they are used, they need to be on TV every week.
Both the demo and viewership numbers were down from the previous week. Though the viewership was down the P18-49 has remained pretty much the same. Not to mention it is the fourth straight week AEW Dynamite has been over 900,000 viewers.
AEW Dynamite was second on cable according to Showbuzzdaily.com behind the early basketball game on ESPN. It beat the second basketball game on ESPN in both demo and viewership.
Things are turning around in the numbers game especially now that the drama is over. You have to hope this good run continues. But the numbers will help secure a new TV deal for AEW Dynamite down the road and a streaming deal too.
The rivalry between Hangman Adam Page and Jon Moxley kicked things off on this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite. This was a hard-hitting affair that started in the crowd before going into the ring. Page looked to have this win in hand multiple times, but Moxley like he has done in matches past found a way to get the victory. Page tried Moxley’s bulldog choke, but it didn’t work. What a great way to kick off Dynamite.
Following that the Acclaimed were in action. They made quick work out of their opponents. After the bell, the Gunn Club came out as they set up a match for the AEW Tag Team Titles. Feels like a heel turn is coming for Billy Gunn. Konosuke Takeshita vs. Brian Cage was the next match on the card. This was a solid match between guys getting lots of TV time lately. Cage is a great athlete, but so is Takeshita as he is proving to be a great asset for AEW.
The feud between the JAS and Ricky Starks continued. Backstage it was laid down to Starks he had to run the gauntlet facing will have to beat Angelo Parker and Matt Menard, Sammy Guevara or Daniel Garcia, before can have a match with Chris Jericho.

Bryan Danielson versus Timothy Thatcher was next. What an excellent match this was. A pure wrestling match between two excellent pro wrestlers. Danielson sold hard for Thatcher as he, Danielson, was still nursing his left arm injury. Bryan Danielson found another way to win this match. Instead of his ground-and-pound game, he used his striking arsenal. MJF tried to interfere, but Danielson got help from Takeshita as those two are heading towards a match next week.
Jade Cargill and Red Velvet were next for the TBS Title. This was a fine match. These two have been linked since Jade came into the company. Cargill continued the winning streak and moved to 50-0.
The Main Event saw Darby Allin defending TNT Title against Samoa Joe in a No Holds Barred Match. This was a great match between two rivals who battle over the prize of being the King of Television. Well, Joe is the self-proclaimed King of Television. AEW does hardcore matches very well. Joe picked up the victory to regain the TNT Title. But he celebration was short-lived as Wardlow returned and these two head towards a rematch at AEW Revolution.
That was the show.
