With the increase in viewership, Dynamite took the third spot in the demographic among cable originals overall Wednesday night. On cable, they were only defeated by ESPN’s coverage of NCAA Basketball and Football, according to Showbuzz Daily.
This week’s show kicked off with a promo from Ricky Starks to address his match with MJF last week. He is interrupted by the Jericho Appreciation Society, and Jericho offers him to join the group. Starks declines and is attacked by the JAS before Action Andretti makes the save. The main event saw Jamie Hayter defeat Hikaru Shida to retain the AEW Women’s World Championship.
