Sasha Banks took to Twitter on Friday, revealing that she was “the draw” following the news that the NXT Great American Bash event defeated AEW Fyter Fest in viewership numbers on Wednesday night. For those unaware, Banks’ match with Io Shirai drew 900,000 viewers. AEW drew 645,000 viewers for their main event. With that being said, AEW won every demographic for the night, including the key 18-49 demographic.
“The Draw…… but YOU already knew that!”
As we’ve been reporting for months now, WWE was planning to bring in main roster talents if AEW continued to defeat NXT on a weekly, which they had been doing.
