The 6/7 episode of WWE “NXT 2.0” received some positive rating news thanks in part to the fallout from NXT: In Your House over the weekend.
Wrestlenomics came out with the ratings from Tuesday night and the episode saw an average viewership of 675,000 which is the highest number the program has seen since May 3. It received a 23% increase in total viewership from the week before.
The key demo also saw an increase as it accrued an audience of 183,000 (0.14, P18-49) which gives it a 21% increase from the previous week. It ranked #22 overall in that demo for cable originals and #38 for broadcast primetime. The two heavy-hitters for Tuesday evening were America’s Got Talent for NBC at #1 (0.77, P18-49) and the NHL Eastern Conference Finals on ESPN at #2 (0.68, P18-49).

Crews and Sikoa defeated Hayes and Williams.
In addition to that, an inaugural Women’s NXT Breakout Tournament winner was crowned as Roxanne Perez defeated Tiffany Stratton in the finals of the tournament. We also saw Santos Escobar in action against Nathan Frazer while being under the watchful eye of his new “family boss” Tony D’Angelo.
