According to Figure Four Online’s Bryan Alvarez, Dynamite averaged 932,000 viewers during its two-hour broadcast, while NXT garnered 542,000 viewers.

Dynamite was originally supposed to be held in Rochester, New York, but it was moved to Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida, with no fans in attendance. Meanwhile, NXT didn’t hold a live show, as it instead showed documentary-style videos with Triple H and Tom Phillips serving as the hosts.
