Tony Khan brags about AEW beating NXT in the ratings war after Wednesday night’s Winter is coming, WWE’s T-Bar responds to the tweet.
Back in the 90’s there were the Monday night wars. TNT is home once again to WWE’s newest rival. Except, this time the war is on Wednesday and it isn’t really in direct competition with the WWE but NXT. However, that is understandable considering how young the promotion still is.
Regardless however, AEW has done well to hold their own and even beat NXT quite a lot of times in the ratings war. This Wednesday night however, they blew NXT out of the water by scoring their highest demo rating of 2020.
According to PW Torch, Dynamite netted 913,000 viewers for a .42 rating point in the 18-49 demographic. NXT checked in with 658,000 viewers for a .16 rating point in the same 18-49 demo. This is a surge of about 203,000 viewers from the week prior!

AEW President Tony Khan took to Twitter to share how well Winter is Coming had done for them. In his tweet he also mentioned NXT’s ratings to show how much of a success the show was.
“Thank you great fans who made #AEWDynamite Winter Is Coming a huge success for @AEW + @tntdrama ! We got our best demo rating of 2020 + a new #AEW Champion @KennyOmegamanX + an indelible memory with Sting’s arrival, + won the night
AEW 913k P2+/543k P18-49
NXT 658k P2+/210k P18-49” he tweeted.
While many celebrated alongside him, there were a few who wondered what the need was to mention NXT.
WWE star T-Bar among those who took offense to NXT’s inclusion in the post and decided to reply to Khan’s post.
“T-BAR 1.74m”, he replied.

The bragging from Khan was well, tacky but so is T-Bar’s reply considering RAW consistently hit 3-million just 4 years back. Record low numbers aren’t bragging rights, unless his intention was to show AEW that even at their best they can’t keep up with WWE’s worst?
It is true that the WWE is head and shoulders above AEW. Tony Khan will need at least 10 years before he can even think of catching up. However, seeing T-Bar defend the WWE is hilarious considering his entire gimmick of wanting to bring it down.
