Tuesday’s live edition of WWE NXT drew 695,000 viewers on the USA Network, according to Nielsen via PWTorch.

This is up 3.9% from last week’s Takeover go-home show, which drew 669,000 viewers.

NXT featured fallout from Sunday’s “Takeover: In Your House” event with a loaded line-up advertised ahead of time, which included Io Shirai giving her return address to the fans, Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher defeating The Grizzled Young Veterans in a Tornado Rules main event, and NXT General Manager William Regal’s “change” teaser, which led to the return of Samoa Joe.

Tuesday’s NXT drew a 0.19 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. This is even with last week’s 0.19 rating in the key demo.

This week’s NXT viewership was down 6.8% from the same week in 2020, while the 18-49 key demo rating was down 5% from the same week in 2020. The 2020 episode went head-to-head with AEW Dynamite in the Wednesday night timeslot, while this week’s episode faced competition from the NBA finals.
