Adam Copeland: How Can You Not Enjoy The Fact That AEW And NXT Are Both Loading Up?

The wrestling war returns on Tuesday, October 10 as AEW and NXT go head-to-head once again. AEW won the Wednesday Night War when both shows ran on Wednesdays beginning in 2019, consistently drawing higher viewership numbers and eventually moving NXT to Tuesdays.

NXT and AEW are loading up their shows on October 10 with NXT advertising appearances by John Cena and Cody Rhodes, along with a tease of The Undertaker, while AEW is putting on a card that includes Bryan Danielson vs. Swerve Strickland, Hangman Page vs. Jay White, and Adam Copeland's first AEW match against Luchasaurus.

Speaking on the Masked Man Show, Copeland discussed both brands stacking their shows.

"Who cares 'I'm only this guy, I'm only this guy.' This is awesome. How can you not enjoy the fact that both shows are trying to load up and trying to put the best show on imaginable? That's all I really care about. I'll try to make sure that my part of the show is all killer, no filler. That's my only job. I'm sure both will get watched, when it's all said and done with DVR and however else it gets computed since everything with ratings is so antiquated. It's fun. I remember flipping back and forth between Nitro and Raw. That's kind of what this is. I don't see that as a bad thing at all. I think it's great. The performers themselves, there is none of this weird tribalism. Within any industry, sure, there is competition, but I'm happy for those guys and they're happy for us. When there are choices and there is another company that can push the other company, that's when you get the best stuff," he said.

Copeland spent 25 years in WWE before signing with AEW in October, making his debut at AEW WrestleDream.

Fightful will have coverage of both AEW and NXT beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
