It was revealed that NXT’s main event that featured Sasha Banks & Bayley teaming up to take on Teegan Nox & Shotzi Blackheart pulled in more viewers than AEW’s main event of Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara teaming up against Best Friends.
NXT had 757K viewers to end the night while AEW had 706K viewers. Even though AEW won the night, NXT had more main event viewers. This caught the eye of Sasha Banks, who took to Twitter to simply say, “We’re better than #LeSexGods”.
Chris Jericho caught wind of Sasha’s tweet and responded by telling her that they got ‘SMOKED’ in the all important p18-49 demo. He said, “You did good…Just not good enough!”
You can take a look at the tweets below. Do you consider this a friendly war of words or is it deeper than that? Feel free to let us know your thoughts below.
Jericho/Sammy vs Best Friends (main event) 706K
Sasha Banks/Bayley vs Knox/Shotzi 757K (83K gain)
These are the only 2 talents (NXT or Main Roster) to beat Jericho head to head. pic.twitter.com/xAWnBAnrrr

Congrats guys, proud of you! But don’t forget to add that you got SMOKED in the all important p18-49 demo (which is what advertisers care about the most) 367k to 264k! You did good…Just not good enough! 😉 https://t.co/3qcGIjxdck
